(FeedBurner automatically truncates the messages to 140 characters, if it violates the 140 character limit as set by Twitter.)


Select the checkbox for leave room for retweets and also select create hash tags from  item categories.

What is retweet?
Retweet is nothing but tweeting tweets of somebody else. This is done to show content / tweet which you found useful.

What are hash tags?
Hash tags are used by Twitter to tag or group tweets for use by various Twitter clients.
This allows easy sorting and grouping of tweets.

If you have a Blogger blog, the labels will act as the hash tags. For web CMS (content management systems),they are nothing but categories.
