Nine months ago a guy named Justin asked for the links to be made into hyperlinks on Twitter’s customer service page. A Twitter representative said they weren’t adding new features.
Fortunately, others made the simple changes required to get the badge to display hyperlinked URLs. I’m using Alan Hogan’s version, which is a slightly modified version of Michele’s changes.
Now the links are all hyped up so you, the reader, can click’em.
Actually the version on http://www.soccio.it/michelinux/2007/11/09/clickable-links-in-twitter-htmljs-badge/en/ also includes Alan Hogan’s improvements. In the while we also added a function to make clickable any address starting by www (you don’t need to add the http://).
Thanks for the clarification Michele.
