Easy ReTweet is a WordPress Plugin, which let’s you add retweet or Tweet this buttons for your WordPress posts, together with the retweet count.

Easy ReTweet uses easy retweet JavaScript library created by John Resig and is based on Bit.ly JavaScript API.

Plugin Usage

You can download the Plugin from the Plugin’s home page. There are three ways you can add the retweet button, the automatic way, manual way and using shortcodes.

Automatic way

Install the Plugin and choose the type and position of the button from the Plugin’s settings page.

Manual way

If you want more control over the way the button should be positioned, then you can manually call the button using the following code.

if (function_exists('easy_retweet_button')) echo easy_retweet_button();

Using Shortcodes

You can also place the shortcode [easy-retweet] anywhere in your post. This shortcode will be replaced by the button when the post is rendered.


The .pot file is available with the Plugin. If you are willing to do translation for the Plugin, use the .pot file to create the .po files for your language and let me know. I will add it to the Plugin after giving credit to you.


The Plugin is available on the WordPress Plugin directory. Support is available at Plugin’s home page or at the author’s original announcing post.
