Webmasters and marketers understand the need to make a visitor's experience on your Wordpress blog the best it can be. Twitter is so popular today that it needs to be a part of your blog and there are some great plugins that will do just that to your Wordpress blog.
I want to list a number of Wordpress Twitter Plugins that you should know about for your personal Twitter experience.
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.
With the explosion of blogging and Twitter this Wordpress plugin will import Tweets about your post as comments. The tweetbacks that you get can be customized to be included in your comments or displayed 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 is a plugin that creates a complete integration between your WordPress blog and your Twitter account. Twitter Tools communicates with your Twitter account and has many features of great value, the features include:
* 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)
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 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. Shows your most recent Twitter status, and when your Twitter status was last updated.
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. The program will use the visitor's Twitter email address to match the email address they left in your comment box. If this cannot be done it will attempt to use the Gravatar. There are a number of other style settings that can be applied to the avatar for customization.
