How to add Tweet This Icon or use Tweetmeme, etc?

I'd like to add something like a Share on Twitter or Tweet This icon to my website that would appear on product pages since it's an ECommerce website.
What type of HTML would I need to do something like that? It would have to simply be clickable text or an icon that would load www.twitter.com for the user to log in if necessary and would open up a tweet with the URL that is in their browser.
I also have looked at services like www.tweetmem.com and www.retweet.com. Both seem to offer the HTML for icons. I like the tracking that is offered but also I'm not sure if I really want the number of tweets to be listed since many products may have a low number of tweets.
Thank you for suggestions.

Re: How to add Tweet This Icon or use Tweetmeme, etc?

grab an icon and use this -

<a href=”http://twitter.com/home?status=Currently reading <?php the_permalink(); ?>” title=”Click to send this page to Twitter!” target=”_blank”><img src=”<?php bloginfo(’template_url’); ?>/images/sharing/your-icon-name.png” width=”48″ height=”48″ alt=”Tweet This!” /></a>

You can place this code in your single.php file before this line:
<?php the_content(); ?>
