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:

<script type="text/javascript" src="https://www.retweet.com/static/retweets.js" ></script>

    would love to start using this thing, but its not ready for prime time yet. it isnt even utilizing the url shorteners. you didnt check this before making a post live? ive contacted the guys at mesiablabs with no answer. hopefully we will see this get taken care of promptly. looking forward to seeing where they will be going with this.

      But with Twitter automatically shortening URLs, it isn’t too much of a problem.

      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! 🙂
