Tweet for track and iframes

Is it possible to use the tweet for track code in an iframe? I'm trying to use it in an iframe and then using fancybox but am having limited success!

I have it up on a demo page now ( and it works half the time but only when you're already signed into twitter. I have the code successfully installed on and that is the iframe src.

I'm a complete novice so any help would be appreciated.

    Hi Jack,

    You're probably seeing issues because of the OAuth process — if the
    user isn't signed in I believe Twitter would force a new window for
    security sake. So it's probably not possible to build the app entirely
    within an iFrame...but you might have better luck opening that same
    fancybox, letting it shift to twitter in a new window, then taking the
    callback...might be a little too much customization though.
