I’ve added a quick new PopClip extension called “Twitterify” to the collection. It will convert any @names and #tags in the selected text to Markdown or HTML links pointing to the user’s page on Twitter or a Twitter search for the hashtag. It’s something I find myself doing pretty often when writing blog posts that mention users. I rarely link hashtags, but it seemed like a pretty standard addition.
@ttscoff should take it easy with the #popclip thing.
[@ttscoff](https://twitter.com/ttscoff) should take it easy with the [#popclip](https://twitter.com/search?q=%23popclip&src=hash) thing.
Or, holding down Option:
<a href="https://twitter.com/ttscoff" title="ttscoff on Twitter">@ttscoff</a> should take it easy with the <a href="https://twitter.com/search?q=%23popclip&src=hash">#popclip</a> thing.
By default the “Markdown Links” option is enabled, but you can disable it and default to HTML links when installing the extension or at any time by clicking the pencil icon in the extensions list and then clicking the gear icon next to the Twitterify extension.
You can also switch formats on the fly by holding down the Option key when running it. If you have “Markdown Links” enabled, this will create HTML links and vice versa.
Download the full set below, extract it and double click the Twitterify extension file to install just that one. The rest are all detailed in the README file for the repository, if you’re curious.
