Inline Tweet Sharer 1.4.5 Released

Today I’ve released Inline Tweet Sharer 1.4.5. This plugin update fits a bunch of minor issues, so it isn’t an essential update, but you should update particularly if you are using Inline Tweet Sharer in a developmental environment, as these changes only affect users who use Inline Tweet Sharer with WP Debug mode switched on.…
