You can download the plugin from Tweetmeme (↑) or directly install it with the Wordpress Admin Interface.
Add Plugin, Search for “tweetmeme”
Select the plugin from the list.
Review the description and install it.
After installing you need to activate and configure the plugin.
Activate the plugin
A new item — “Tweetememe” — appears in the left navigation bar at the bottom. Now it's time to configure it. (It's very easy.)
Settings for Tweetmeme

URL shortener: bit.ly

Tweetmeme Button Successfully Installed
How long did this take?
4 minutes or less?
We are almost done.
Let's move the button to the left side…
I just want the button move the botton from the other side. All I need to do is to modify the Style.
Style for right side (default):float: right; margin:left: 10px;
Style for left side:float: left; margin-right: 10px;
The result looks fine.
Voilà, my twitter user and a shorter text. Perfect.
The plugin uses — behind the scenes — the HTML meta element and inserts a “tweetmeme-title” into the head section of the page with the title of the post. It drops the title of the blog to keep the retweet text string short.
<meta name="tweetmeme-title" content="Marketing Lesson From Sushi" />
There are additionally configuration options. Just play with them a little.
