Twitter has gained huge popularity since its launch. Twitter is establishing itself as a strong competitor for Facebook as well as Google+.
In Twitter, user often encounters situations in which they see a great tweet that they would love to share with their friends or other users. The only way forward for them is retweeting.
Users have two ways to retweet and they are
Automatic RT function
Manual RT function
One of the major disadvantages of making use of automatic RTs is that the person on the other side will never know that the user is retweeting unless they check their ‘Your Tweets, retweeted’ tab. It is also possible that the user on the other side will never know that you retweeted.
Where as Manual RTs is considered to be one of the best methods to retweet.
Users will first have to log in to the Twitter by making use of the Twitter credentials
Then copy the entire tweet that includes the Twitter user name of the corresponding person who sent it
Now the users will have to paste the tweet on to their text box where the users normally tweet
Now the users will have to remove the less important characters as well as user name that appeared when you copied
Type “ RT @ “ at the beginning of the tweet
Now the users will have to edit the tweet to 140 characters
It is always desirable to allow some comment space
Users will have to remove all the optional punctuations that are present in the tweet
It is always desirable that users check the link URL’s carefully since Twitter’s handling can break them when the user copies and then paste the tweet
Finally the users are advised to add on the space before RT such as ‘thank you’ or ‘you are welcome’ or any remarks that the user wishes to include
The procedure works on Twitter as well as on any third-party Twitter client also
This is how users can retweet their favorite tweets by means of manual RT functionality, which is considered to be the nice little compliment that the users can give to the person who actually posted it.
