Using Twitter with your WordPress blog is a great way to gain more Twitter followers and show your latest tweets to your readers. Furthermore your readers can also tweet your latest blog posts to their own followers; providing you with great exposure and sharing your content with more people. Twitter has become one of the greatest social networks in the world and is my favourite place to share my content through social media. Retweets is a great advantage that Twitter has over Facebook for people looking to promote their content as your content can be shared with people who may not be following you with the click of a button.
Twitter plugins and widgets are very popular for sharing your content online and in this post i am going to show you some of my favourite WordPress plugins for doing this.
