retweet / RT

A retweet is a feature on Twitter that allows you to re-post someone else’s Tweet. This feature is conversational and helps you to quickly share a Tweet with your followers. To show you your followers that you are retweeting a Tweet – put “RT” at the beginning. Although this is not something you have to do per Twitter – it allows your followers to recognize that you are reposting one of your follower’s postings. How do you see your own Tweets that have been retweeted? Go to the “connect” page and in the “Interactions section” you will see your Tweet activity – which also shows if one of your Tweets has been retweeted.
