  • There are two types of re-tweets. ..
  • RT – Retweet: The “more work involved,” yet personal way to re-tweet. The tweet starts with RT, followed by@mention and ending with the original message.
  • MT (or sometimes mRT) – Modified Tweet:  These letters are used to repost a Tweet that has been altered in some way. If you change anything about the original Tweet, use the MT/mRT.
