Wordpress Twitter Tools replacement

I've been using Twitter Tools on my Wordpress blog for a while now but it's not working the way I want. I tried using the newer beta version but that doesn't actually work at all. There's like a million Twitter-related plugins for Wordpress but which one(s) does what I want? Details within.

I'm running v3.3.2 of Wordpress. Twitter Tools v2.4 works, but won't include the hashtag when I use the "Press This" bookmarklet. If I want to include or change a hashtag, I have to go into the Admin interface. It looked like the Twitter Tools beta would allow me to add a hashtag (or any other random text) but it didn't actually work at all, unfortunately. All I want to do is have Wordpress send a tweet when I post, I'm not really interested in creating posts from tweets or anything similar.
What would be ideal is the ability to have a per-post hashtag field on the bookmarklet along with the default (as well as have the default included). The sidebar widget of Twitter Tools is nice but I can easily do that in other ways. Is there something that does this buried in the Plugin Directory, or am I stuck with Twitter Tools?
