    Simple Twitter connect is a nice plugin. I have used it on a couple sites. The other plugins are only “alright” to a certain degree. Remember, to many plugins can make your site run slowly and/or you might run into conflicts using multiple similar plugins at the same time. I really like a plugin called Socialize This as it lets me create different social widget sets which can then be placed under your posts or in any area within your templates. With this plugin I can essentially accomplish in one plugin what can be accomplished in this list with several plugins.

    Thanks for the list. FYI, Twitoaster has been taken down and is no longer available.

    Anyone know of alternatives?

    Just what I was looking for. Thanks for the sharing, I also found a useful service for docs merging. I mostly use https://goo.gl/fmRges to merge my PDFs. I think it also allows you to fill the merged documents.
