Adding a Tweet button on RSS feeds with Feedburner

I have seen a few bloggers add a Tweet button directly to their RSS feed, making it really easy for RSS readers to retweet, without having to go to their website. 
 
After a little research, I have found this article
http://help.tweetmeme.com/2009/07/15/feed-buttons/
that takes you through how to do it, but I can't seem to find WHERE to edit my feed in Feedburner.
If someone knows I would appreciate pointing me in the right direction.
 
I also found a WP plugin called Topsy that offers to add the Tweet button to your RSS feed, so I have installed that for the moment and will let you know how it goes.
 
I think it is important to make social sharing as easy as possible for readers, with a concise tweet, short URL and twitter handle all ready in one click. 
I have gotten discouraged from tweeting in the past by sites that made it too complicated.

Hey Pauline,

 

I have added a RSS feed reminder (3 max) to my blog and it has steadily increased nicely. Tweet buttons are good but I am digging the rss feed. 

 

Also feedburner can be a bit confusing. Once you get into your feed you should see an edit feed details in very small blue lettering on the top. It's small and not very visable. 

 

Hope this helps.

Thank you Jai! 

I have found a nice plugin that is called Easy Twitter Button. no need for programming skills, it would add the Tweet button inside the RSS feed. The only thing it doesn't do it shorten the URL but I try to keep mine short anyway.

 

What I am hoping is busy people who wouldn't come over and comment would still click on it and RT to their followers.
