As you can see above, it’s almost Digg like in appearance and thankfully it’s really easy to add to your blog too. All you’ve got to do is paste the following code in your single.php file:

Hey guys wanted to update you on the Retweet.com button;

– We have added tracking to the Retweet.
– We have added our RT.nu URL shortener.
– The button also goes grey after you’ve clicked it.

More updates always coming, thanks for the coverage! 🙂
