Okay, so maybe I am just exaggerating the title a little bit. But really, when I installed some widgets in all my blogs today that included a retweet plugin, I wondered how to use them. After all, I have never tried doing a retweet. All I do in Twitter is just post a message and that’s it! But that is called a simple tweet.
The art of retweeting is best described as taking a twitter message someone else has posted, and rebroadcasting that same message to your followers. This involves having to use the two letters RT plus, after discovering after a few tweet posts, having to also add the original poster’s username starting with the @ sign.
Hah! Talk about ignorance. My first retweeting experience sure was not easy. But at least I know how to do it now ;).
