What will happen is when a user presses the Tweet button the Tweet web intent will fail to load and users will instead see a Twitter error page.
I want to use multiple Tweet Buttons on my page. Is there anything I should know?¶

via user is shown first with the first
related account shown afterwards. If the user is a follower of the

related accounts the user isn’t a follower of. No accounts are displayed if the user follows all of the suggested accounts (
