    WP to Twitter

    That plugin posts a Twitter status update from your blog using the Cli.gs URL shortening service to provide a link back to your post from Twitter.
    If you have a Cli.gs API key, the shortened URL will also be filed in your Cli.gs account so that you can track statistics for the shortened URL.
    The plugin can send a default message for updating or editing posts or pages, but also allows you to write a custom Tweet for your post which says whatever you want. By default, the shortened URL from Cli.gs is appended to the end of your message, so you should keep that in mind when writing your custom Tweet.
    Any status update you write which is longer than the available space will automatically be truncated by the plugin. This applies to both the default messages and to your custom messages.

    Favicons

    Choose easily a favicon to make your site eye-catching and easily recognizable by visitors that have several windows opened on their navigator.
    Most of websites don’t have favicon. Why? Because most of bloggers don’t know how to set it. This plugin will probably improve that.
    You can choose to use as favicon :
    - your gravatar
    - a private icon
    - or an image from the Icon Set included
