Although I have been involved with Twitter from shortly after it’s launch there is so much to learn. People come up with different ways to use Twitter to market and develop a community of people and this is one great area of Twitter to follow. The other area of Twitter that is equally as great is all the plugins and hacks that are developed to make the entire Twitter experience more and more unique.

I want to list a number of WordPress Twitter Plugins that you should know about for your personal Twitter experience.

Tweet Meme
You are possibly familiar with the little graphic that shows the number of tweets a blog post has and then you see a green button under that number that says retweet. This is the Tweet Meme plugin for WordPress and it makes it easy for your visitors to tweet your blog to their Twitter feed.

Tweetbacks
With the explosion of blogging and Twitter this WordPress plugin will import Tweets about your post as comments. You can display the tweetbacks nested in other comments on your blog or display them separately. The more comments you have on your site the better ranking your page can get in Google since it shows activity and value.

Twitter Tools
Twitter Tools is a plugin that creates a complete integration between your WordPress blog and your Twitter account. Twitter Tools integrates with Twitter by giving you the following functionality:
* Archive your Twitter tweets (downloaded every 10 minutes)
* Create a blog post from each of your tweets
* Create a daily or weekly digest post of your tweets
* Create a tweet on Twitter whenever you post in your blog, with a link to the blog post
* Post a tweet from your sidebar
* Post a tweet from the WP Admin screens
* Pass your tweets along to another service (via API hook)

Twit this
Place some simple code on your site to create a graphic or a text link that people can click to post a Tweet to their Twitter account.

Twitt twoo
Twitt-Twoo is a simple little plugin that will allow you to update your Twitter status right from your blog’s sidebar. AJAX takes cares of the hard work, and means that your page doesn’t even have to reload, allowing for quick and easy status updates. Displays your latest Twitter status, and when it was last updated.

Twitter Updater
The Twitter Updater automatically sends a Twitter status update to your Twitter account when you create, publish, or edit your WordPress post. You can specify the text for the updates, and also have the option to turn the auto update on/off for the different post actions in the admin panel.


Twittar WordPress Plugin

This WordPress plugin will try to load the twitter avatar of the person leaving a comment on a blog post. It will try to match the email address in the comment to the Twitter account. If this cannot be done it will attempt to use the Gravatar. There are a number of other style settings you can use for customization.


Here is a Screen Shot of my Twitter followers increasing using Tweet Adder in just a couple days.

    I’ve been using Twit This for months and I like it because it’s so easy to install. However, I checked out a couple of plugin from your list and might try out others. I had no idea there are so many Titter plugins out there. Thanks for sharing.

    • billwynne says:

      There are a lot of plugins. It is hard to know which is the best. It can take a lot of time.
      Just pick one that you hear about and see if it does what you need. If not go get another one.

  13. Apple says:

    Thanks for the article. Its nice to have continuity with different online marketing activities, and this is prominent with Twitter becoming increasingly popular!

  14. Sergey says:
