JM Twitter Cards

The Lowdown:

Adds twitter card support to your site so that when you send out a tweet they also get the card. Supports all 7 of the twitter card formats. Adds a new metes data area to your posts so you can control the info on a per post basis.  This is a great way to highlight products or multi media content

Bulk Deactivate

the Lowdown:

from time to time you will have to do the dreaded and deactivate plugins until you can find out what is breaking. and one of the big issues here is if you already had plugins installed and not active they can become confused or you may be turning them on and off and simply loose track. this plugin allows you to create lists of plugins and then shut them down in bilk and then reactivate them.  All in all work pretty nice.

Google News Editors Picks Feed Generator
https://wordpress.org/plugins/google-news-editors-picks-news-feeds/
The most comprehensive RSS feed generator specifically tailored to meet the needs of publishers wanting to optimize an individual Google News Editors’ Picks RSS Feed. Creates both a homepage and section-based feed topic-specific. Customize required feed images, names, titles, descriptions and more! Exclude articles from feeds and enter custom meta descriptions from the lightweight, custom meta box located on post.php (edit) screens. In order to have your website included in Google News, you will have to suggest it for inclusion first. This plugin is nearly pointless without site inclusion.
