How to Add Twitter Retweet Button into WordPress Blogs




As we all know, Twitter is a micro blogging website where we can send tweets of up to 140 characters. Like Digg offers ‘Digg it’ button, Twitter offers retweet button that we can use on our blogs so that our readers can vote for stories of their interest on this highly popular social media website. We can expect good amount of

traffic on our blogs if our stories get lots of retweets and good amount of traffic means, more money being made for us.
