Set keyboard shortcuts to share web Page from Safari via Twitter or Messages Apps
With the Share button in Safari on Mountain Lion, you can share web pages using Twitter or Messages. There are no default keyboard shortcuts, but you can create your own.

Open System Preferences, click on the Keyboard icon, then the Keyboard Shortcuts tab. Click on Application Shortcuts, then click on the + icon. Choose Safari as application, then enter either "Twitter" or "Messages" as the Menu Title. Enter the keyboard shortcut you want; I use Command-Control-T for Twitter and Command-Control-M for Messages. Click on Add to apply the shortcut.

Quit Safari and relaunch it. If you click on the Share button in the toolbar, you won't see your new shortcuts, but they work. You can see them by choosing File > Share.

Whenever you want to share a web page via Twitter or Messages, you can now do so with a single keystroke.

Set keyboard shortcuts to share web Page from Safari via Twitter or Messages

Love this tip though, like almost all Keyboard Shortcuts assigned in the Preference Pane, seems not to work some of the time. And the keyboard shortcuts actually do show up to me when I click the button. But only the ones I've added manually. Even though Command-Shift-I still works to e-mail a page, it's not listed there.

Note that if you have a bookmark named after any entry on the sharing list (i.e. "Facebook" or "Twitter") then the keyboard shortcut will be assigned to that too. ALthough as already mentioned this works only part of the time because of a buggy or incomplete implantation at Apple HQ.
