I have been using the official Twitter 'tweet' button with the follow up window and think the interface is great. My question: how best to track the tweet stats through this tool (as I'm inserting this button on all of my blog posts, etc.) since Twitter hasn't launched their analytics platform yet. Tweetmeme you could sync with a tracking ID. Let me know if you have a solution to this. Thanks for the great post!

I have been considering making the switch to the twitter button as well. One thing that I don't like about the twitter button is that you need to be logged into twitter to use, which isn't that big of a deal but it can be annoying if I'm not logged in and I just want to retweet a post. I also get nervous with coding my blog. I've also heard that the new tweet button will wrong slow 0 tweets, but maybe they've fixed that by now. I do really like that it provides recommended follows. That is a definite plus!

Hi Kristi. I use the Tweet button now. And when you have installed the Tweetmeme plugin you can choose between Twitter and Tweetmeme. Really a cool option to do some cross testing. And with the Tweetmeme plugin you don't have to worry about the coding issue. I have not noticed the recommendation yet. But I like the new format of Twitter where I now get recommendations related to my niche. Really cool. Twitter will really be a major Social Network player in 2011. The are coming strong from behind. Was great to meet you at Blog Expo 2010. Cheers.. Are :)

I've been wondering how to incorporate the new button on my site so your post is timely. Good point about the differences when using your site via mobile. I think for now I'll just stick with the tweetmeme button but keep an eye on what's happening with the official Twitter button. Thanks Kristi!

Haven't gotten to embedding it yet, but I will.. Not just because of the reason offered here in this post, though it does put a little more pressure on it.. :) ..btw.. Don't see the Twitter button to tweet this post..? :P
