Why aren't there share buttons on articles?

Maybe I'm missing something super obvious here, but why isn't there a "share to twitter" button on articles?

This would be a massively efficient way to expose indie hackers to a wider audience AND it could be implemented in less than an hour using something like https://www.addtoany.com.

    I had them in the past and they were rarely used, so I dropped them in the redesign with a note to eventually bring them back if I can fit them in. Hopefully sooner rather than later.

      Well done! today it is extremely easy to share on mobile and in a desktop it's always been easy to copy/paste the link.

      IH's interface is amazing, by the way :)

      Fair enough. Strikes me as odd they were rarely used.

      The IH crowd are Twitter-crazy.

    Agreed. I think this would be a great addition to Indiehackers.
