Twitter plugin suggestion needed

I have been through about a dozen Twitter plugins so far looking for one that meets all of my needs with no luck. I am hoping someone can recommend one.

The most important feature I need is the ability to include re-tweets in the displayed feed. About 90% of my tweets are re-tweets of industry news using the new re-tweet system instead of the old "RT @..." method. So far none of the plugins I've tried will display those tweets even though they are present in the RSS feed itself. That's actually the only deal breaker.

I would like the ability to send tweets from within the WordPress dashboard... Or more specifically, it would be nice if on the edit page for each post there was an twitter option. I don't want it to automatically tweet each new post, I want the ability to edit the tweet for each post before it goes out.

It would be nice if the plugin supported multiple twitter feeds and search tags.

And it needs to support the Twitter API since I definitely get more than 95 visitors an hour during peak times.

I have tried Tweetable, Tweet Blender, WP Twitter, My Twitter, and a number of others with no success.

Thanks for any suggestions you can provide.

I am currently going through this list I found:


However, I'd love to hear from others about their favorite Twitter plugin and a link to see it in action.

I'm also looking for a good twitter - retweet plugin.

I currently have this installed ( http://www.donaldegray.com ) and it works, but I'm not wild about it, but it works.

Oops. We're looking for different functions. I'm looking for a way to let readers retweet, not for me to tweet. different ideas.

Good luck!
