twitter_logo_retweetI recently faced a problem with the Tweetmeme plugin as it was not updating my Twitter Status even when I was retweeting a lot of posts on various blogs using this plugin. So, I started using the Topsy plugin too along with the old Tweetmeme one. The reason why I dint remove the Tweetmeme plugin was, It is the most used Twitter Retweet plugin. Most people are very comfortable using it. So, I am still keeping the Topsy plugin if in-case that Tweetmeme stops working anytime.

Note: Tweetmeme Button was not working for sometime on All the blogs because there was some maintenance work going on as a small bug was being corrected.

Now I am listing for wordpress plugins which basically help your readers to ReTweet the posts on your blog. Most of them give you and option for Selection between different button sizes and Tweet using your username i.e. An @ reply will also be send to the Twitter account you specify in the settings.

Topsy Retweet Button

Note: A small difference between the Tweets which the Tweetmeme and the Topsy button send out is that, the Tweetmeme button sends out the tweet with the Title of Post Specified for SEO purposes i.e. The title you specify in the All in One SEO pack. The Topsy button sends out the tweet with Title specified in your Blog post.
