Plugins 027 – TweetMeme WordPress Plugin

Today we’re covering  TweetMeme Button WordPress plugin.

The TweetMeme Button WordPress plugin adds a Tweet me icon to your blog posts and pages. The plugin displays the number of re-tweets referencing your blog post. It is useful both to encourage readers to re-tweet your blog post as well as display how popular the post they are reading is on twitter. You can configure the plugin to remove the tweet me button from both static pages and from your home page. You can also customize the position and location of the button in your blog posts and pages.

The TweetMeme plugin is easy to configure and setup. One small note, some users may experience issues with the button itself depending on how well the theme is designed.

    After having set up the plugin not correct at first, I dug into the topic a bit, wrote two blogposts and even made a screencam video to show installation and configuration of the tweetmeme plugin for WordPress. But I also show what’s involved with a manual setup.

    Most important:
    * Changing the source to your Twitter user ID
    * Making sure the text for retweeting is correct.
