How to fix “widgets-tweet_button.html.torrent” download on WordPress

Last updated on September 28th, 2013

Yesterday, I noticed that when I tried to open a page from my wordpress blog (, a torrent file named “widgets-tweet_button.html.torrent”  started to download. 


After checking my blog settings, I finally found the following solution to resolve this problem.

1. Navigate to WordPress administrative panel and from the left pane, select “Settings” > “Sharing”.


2. At “Sharing” settings, change the “Button Style” appearance (near the end of page) from “Official buttons” to “Icon+text”.



After that action, the “widgets-tweet_button.html.torrent” download stopped occurring.

I hope the above solution also helps others until “Twitter” platform fixes its error.
