Ubuntu / Linux news and application reviews.

Tweetmeme, which provides blog buttons to help users retweet stories and provides a hub of the most shared content on Twitter, announced a number of new features, all of which launch next week. The feature additions include:

- New image-based button: Use the retweet button in your RSS feeds, emails or on blog platforms that don’t support javascript (eg. WordPress (WordPress).com)

- Retweet chicklets: Want to show off how many retweets you got this week? The new retweet chicklet will help you do just that, and post the numbers to your blog.

- Analytics package: Tweetmeme aims to launch more advanced analytics next week to help content providers understand their metrics better. It’s a development that might one day lead to a business model for Tweetmeme…if Twitter doesn’t get there first.
