Creating a self-closing shortcode with parameters

<?php
function button_shortcode( $type ) {

    extract( shortcode_atts( 
        array( 
            'type' => 'value'
         ), $type ) ); 

    // check what type user entered
    switch ($type) {

        case 'twitter':
            return '<a href="http://twitter.com/rupomkhondaker" class="twitter-button">Follw me on Twitter!</a>';
            break;

        case 'rss':
            return '<a href="http://example.com/rss" class="rss-button">Subscribe to the feed!</a>'
            break;
    }
}
add_shortcode( 'button', 'button_shortcode' );
?>

Now you can choose what button to display by defining type in your shortcode.

[button type="twitter"]
[button type="rss"]
