My website british-cemetery-elvas.org is not commercial and I don't want the site to have its own twitter account.

Is there a 'passive' twitter code I can link to a t-icon so visitors to the site can tweet pages to their followers?

Thank you for any help,
Sarah

No. Either you link to a Twitter Page or you don't, and if you do not, then there is no Twitter Identity to forward.

You will have to rely instead on a common "Share" utility that can otherwise distribute via Twitter, such as can be found and custom configured at www.AddThis.com (http://www.AddThis.com)

Hmm. Can you tell me if the code below would work. I participate in a forum that has what I will call passive links to twitter and facebook on each page. The forum doesn´t have either a twitter or a facebook identity. But viewers can tweet the page to others or do whatever people do on facebook. I was hoping to put a similar passive link on my british-cemetery-elvas.org site. The administrator gave me the code he uses - http://twitter.com/home?status={TOPIC_TITLE}: {TOPIC_URL} Would that work on Blue Voda and where would I put it.
Thanks for your help.

No - the code and method offered to you will not work on BlueVoda pages just as explained above.

You will need to use instead a "Sharing" method just as offered by www.AddThis.com (http://www.AddThis.com) ... and if you are entirely specific with the configuration of that tool, you can show only the Twitter icon for Visitors to "share" (re-distribute) your page, Content, or other item.
