I don’t want to use Social warfare, what are the alternatives.
Social Warfare is not a click to tweet plugin,
it only adds the functionality to it’s existing features
  1. Horizontal buttons
  2. Floating buttons
  3. Share count retrieving
  4. Popular post widget based on share count.
 The reason why I use the Social Warfare plugin, is because it is better to have one single plugin
do a bunch of work, than have different plugins for specific tasks
in that way, you will not cluster your admin area with plugins
one of the penalties for doing that is slow loading pages.
Note: If you are going to use the Social Warfare plugin,
I recommend using the premium which adds more social buttons including WhatsApp, Buffer. Email etc and also displays twitter share counts.
It costs $29 and you can get it here.
