WP to Twitter posts Tweets from WordPress to Twitter.

You can shorten URLs using a variety of common URL shorteners, or just leave Twitter to do it for you using their t.co service.

You can also use WP to Twitter display a feed of recent Tweets using widgets. Display Tweets from any account just by entering that account's Twitter ID!
