    I have installed this twitter plugin, it is to tweet your posts onto twitter to let people know. But my problem is i do not want the link to be in the original one. I want it to be in Bit.ly form(Like shorten the Url).

    I have entered the account name and the API Key into the settings on the plugin page on my WP ACP. But it is not working.

    I do not also understand the what post template thingy. I will give the plugin link hope you guys can help me with it thanks.

    Judging by the comments at that link, there's been problems with that plugin 50Cent. It looks like the shortened URL version has been built into it long ago and it should do that automatically. I suspect the problem may not be what you're doing but the plugin version itself.

    I would add a comment about the issue to that link since in fairness the developer's been responding to them and just ask him. With plugins I've often found it better to go to the source. They can spot something in two minutes that would take you or I days to get to the bottom of. That's the best help I can give you since I'm no plugin developer. Make sure you mention you're new to Wordpress so he keeps the explanation straightforward.

    You can use wp-contact-form plugin instead which I am using now.

    You could enable Feedburner on the account, and set up that with a Twitter account. It will automatically tweet a shortened URL version with the tags you specify, after every post.

    Works very well for me on my sites.
