The current most popular real time social sharing site- Twitter has become a rapid revolution in the Internet World. This allows a blogger or webmaster to build up a wider audience and to promote his or her content easily through Twitter.
Placing a “tweet this” or “retweet” button in your blog can let your audiences to retweet the blog posts easily with just a single click and tweet them in Twitter to share with their followers, then the other followers can retweet them again to share with their own followers. The process is then repeated until the retweets end.
Well, keep that in mind that since Twitter only allows 140 characters to be included in one tweet, so always keep your post title short and compact, this is to make sure that when a person retweeted your post, another persons will not have limited characters to retweet it. You can refer to a post by popular blogger, Darren Rowse who mentioned the secrets on how can you make sure the tweet goes virally.
A small retweet button can track and monitor by helping the twitterers to retweet just like you have other social bookmarking buttons such as Stumbleupon or Digg.
