The other day, Lynette asked me to check out her new Quotable plugin for WordPress and I was glad she did because it’s pretty darned snazzy.

It was her plan all along, but I gave her a nudge so it would be ready for you today too.
This plug in provides an easy way to highlight the quotable parts of your posts. Plus, each quote includes a “tweet” and optional Facebook “share” button that allows your users to tweet and share:
- The quotation you highlighted.
- The link to your content
