  • TwitThis is an easy way for people to send Twitter messages about your blog post or website.

  5. wohnsilo says:

    Unfortunately Twitt-Twoo works only with PHP5 – I hope there will be a workaround soon…

    • Joe says:

      There is a good work around for the problem, in fact it totally fixes it. Run PHP5. PHP4 is EOL’d and no longer supported.

    If you have a WP blog and need some timely, relevant content, my new tool Twitterdoodle can automatically add posts to your blog based on twitter keyword/keyword phrase searches.

    Here is my webpage that explains the plugin in detail:

    TwitterSplit turns your everyday twitter post links into “lasso” links keeping your traffic close to home and helping you promote anything you like atop your externally linked pages. Increase your followme conversions too.

      theme for your blogs; as always, if you choose to modify this theme in any way, I would appreciate it if you could keep my credits in the stylesheet and a link in the footer. I still have plans to release my own colour modifications

  13. Larry Bradshaw says:

    Does anyone know how to pull in a tweet feed from a tweet feed search, for example, I would like to show all the tweets within a 1 mile radius from zip code 50309. I can easily do this on twitters website but haven’t found a plug in to get this information into my sidebar nicely.

  14. David says:

  15. Quitting The Day Job says:

  16. Godzhesas says:

  17. Owen says:

    I’m a big fan of TwitterTools and use it on a number of my blogs. Always helps bring traffic in too.


  18. Richard X. Thripp says:

    Interesting list. Hadn’t heard of TwitThis; it’s a bit like Tweet This which I created, except it uses JavaScript, whereas my plugin allows your readers to share your posts on Twitter with a TinyURL (or is.gd, Th8.us, etc.) created and stored in your WP database.

    I was disappointed that most of the Twitter plugins are for displaying your tweets rather than facilitating the sharing of your content by others, which was the reason for Tweet This.

  19. Binary Chick says:

    I shall have to give these a try. Seems useful.

  20. Pinoy Blog says:
