Tinkerin’ With ReTweetin’


So I’ve been using Tweetmeme‘s retweet button for a short time now. It seems to have it’s use. I’ve used it on my own blog as well as click it for a retweet on other blog’s I visit. Tweetmeme has developed and tweaked the function of the Tweetmeme button in the short time that I’ve been using it.

Customization has always been the one drawback. Customizing the actual button itself, not just its size.

Enter – BackType .

It seems that BackType is trying it’s best to keep there finger right on top of the pulse of the discussions throughout the internets. They now have their very own ‘Tweetmeme’ button – the Tweetcount button . Same look and feel, except it of course utilizes BackType’s service. The one thing it has that I liked is the customizable button.

So I’m tinkering.

Tinkering with the color.

Figuring out if the Tweetcount button is all it’s cracked up to be. Is the Tweetcount any better or worse than Tweetmeme? If not, then the Tweetcount wins for customization.

Besides I already use BackType for tracking conversations, everything from FriendFeed, Blog Posts and other Web 2.0 interfaces. I just started using the BackType Connect Plugin as well for my blog.

So we’ll see how it goes.

I just can’t decide on what color my Tweetcount button should be.
