I've notice that sometimes I can tweet my SO answers.

Something like this

shows up by my answer.

  • Who se answers can I share?
  • What was I thinking when I decided that the who/what/when... theme was a good idea?
  • When does this happen? It looks like I can only share my answer for a short time after I post it.
  • Where do the tweets/shares go in the series of pipes and tubes?
  • How lame is this bullet point?
  • Why does this happen? Does the answer have to get upvotes? Are all answers share-able?

This only appears:

  • a random percent of the time, decreasing chance with greater reputation
  • on your posts
  • if they are greater than 400 characters in length
  • for 1 hour after posting
  • 10
    "decreasing chance with greater reputation" I love little details like this. Feb 27, 2012 at 20:03
