Why Gutenberg Should Remain a Plugin

Block: Click-to-Tweet

This week Rich Tabor released the first version of Gutenkit, with a Click-to-Tweet feature. You can find it in the WordPress plugin repository for free. Once installed, you are able to add the block to your Gutenberg view of your post.

Here is a video on how to use it. 

After you install the plugin, you will find a block name "Click to tweet" in your Blocks Tab under "Formatting" to insert. Enter the tweet text, you want your users tweet. 

On the right panel, switch to the "Block" tab, and change the settings:

  • add your twitter account,
  • change the background and the text color.

Don't for get to click on "Save Draft" before you preview your post.

The "Click to Tweet" is the first block in Glutenkit plugin. Rick intends to publish more blocks within this new plugin.
