Twitter Plugin for Easy ReTweeting
TweetMeme button – The TweetMeme retweet button easily allows your blog to be retweeted. The button also provides a current count of how many times your story has been retweeted throughout twitter. Tweetmeme, owing to it’s analytics (you can view the analytics for the last 5 posts) has become the default ‘Tweet this’ plugin for blogs and we strongly recommend you to use this for your blog. The plugin is easy to configure (right from button placement to choice of URL shortener as well as source name).

Use Retweeters plugin to see who recently retweeted links from your blog (an easy way to get your Twitter community rolling).
