Quote Machine: I cant inflate the tweet url data-text

For some reason I cannot get it to pick up the text values from the API source when I use the attr function to change the tweet URL data-text value.When I click the tweet button all I got is a new tweet window with the hardcoded text. My intention is to set the quote + author in the text field. Any ideas to make it work? I did a lot of research and experimentation with the tweet event binds but no success

I don’t think it’s possible to use the Twitter widget for this, because it runs when the page is loaded, so when you change a quote, there’s no way to update the Twitter button. It’s easy to make your own button though. Just have a link to https://twitter.com/intent/tweet?text=YOUR_TEXT and replace the “YOUR_TEXT” with the new quote when the “Quote Me” button is pressed. Use Font Awesome to give it the Twitter logo.

You can try replacing the link’s href attribute instead with
every time you change quotes.
