    Matharuajay, I propose a new and interesting option for the next plugin update.

    It could be very useful to add parameters to the link of the post in order to create a UTM link that will show statistics in Google Analytics.

    And example for the link http://iphone-6.es/

    http://iphone-6.es/?utm_source=wordpressforum&utm_medium=tweetoldpost&utm_campaign=social

    What do you think?

    In order to know how many traffic comes to your website from "old posts" in Twitter, you can use UTM links. Statistics can be checked in Google Analytics > Traffic sources > Campaigns

    There are 3 basic categories (it can be added more):
    utm_campaign
    utm_source
    utm_medium

    An example of 2 campaigns in Twitter: one from tweets published in Twitter by Tweet old Post plugin, and the other of my new posts that automatically are published in Twitter

    Campaign 1:
    utm_campaign=social
    utm_source=twitter
    utm_medium=tweetoldpost

    Campaign 2
    utm_campaign=social
    utm_source=twitter
    utm_medium=autotweets

    After some days, you can know who many people clicked in the links of my new posts and who many people clicked in the links of the old posts.

    So, in your plugin, can you add 3 new categories to add text at the end of the links? It could be something like that:

    utm_campaign: [here people write the name of the campaign]
    utm_source: [here people write the name of the source]
    utm_medium: [here people write the name of the campaign medium]
