Using PWAL in a widget on a page... is this possible?

Hi

I was thinking to put a shortcode for PWAL in a share box at the top of a content area to encourage people to share the page to get a product as I am trying to make the content be shared more virally.

I created the widgeted area and put in a generated shortcode knowing full well that any shares on that id will show that detail site wide after a share and I am ok with that as they are all locked to the same PWAL id.

I noticed however that when tweeting as a share test that the tweet contained no link... just the title of the share

Is there a way to be able to make this work in a widgeted area or is that outside the design scope of this plugin?

Thanks
Chris
