The sharing extension experience seems to be different when invoked from the in-app Safari browser:
- The page title will not be included in e.g. the standard Twitter sharing extension
- The share dialog will often disappear after a second or two. This seems to happen on heavier sites (e.g. theverge.com) so perhaps it’s related to something like a network event callback?

Umm, what? We haven’t launched the sharing extension. It’s in a separate branch but it isn’t released yet. Can you post a screenshot of what you’re describing?
Sorry for the confusion – I meant sharing things from within Newsblur itself. The behavior is different from the article view and the embedded Safari – https://www.dropbox.com/s/avtouzm215b…
The (existing) sharing behavior is in your first screenshot. The 2nd screenshot is what you get when sharing from in-app Safari - it does include a URL reference, but it’s in a separate item so it shows up as a page preview on the right - but no title.
The changes I made last week (which haven’t been merged yet, https://github.com/samuelclay/NewsBlur/pull/923) will produce something a bit halfway between, when sharing from NewsBlur proper - you’ll still get the page title but with the URL as a reference rather than text, which will mean you’ll see a little page thumbnail.
Unfortunately, I think the behavior you’re seeing where the Twitter share extension doesn’t get a page title is a Safari View Controller bug, since the full version of Safari doesn’t behave the same way. The in-app Safari that NewsBlur uses is a bit of a black box - we can’t control much if anything of what happens inside it. Report a bug to Apple…
I couldn’t reproduce #2 but my guess is it may be an iOS bug as well.
