One of the great things about Twitter is the sharing of information between those you follow on Twitter and those who follow you. Someone finds a news article that they think would interested you, they send a “tweet” and you see it. You like it and you want others to see it; you simple “Re-Tweet” it.
In the beginning of Twitter, you would copy and paste the user’s tweet, add their @username to the beginning of the retweet, and type RT in front of the whole thing to let your followers know that this person “said” something you want your followers to “hear”.
Nowadays, you simply click on the “retweet” button under the the “tweet”, and Twitter automatically re-Tweets it.
I’ve noticed blogs and websites placing their own Retweet button under their articles and interested readers can automatically click the button and the article would post on their Twitter stream of messages. I like that. So I went to TweetMeme and copied my own Retweet button, for future articles here at On The Road With Dave.
So if you see something, you want to repeat to your Twitter-faithful; you now can Re-Tweet This Blog.
UPDATE: TweetMeme is no longer available but a Share button is located at the end of each OTRWD article, and you can re-tweet any article through Twitter. So, it still remains…Re-Tweet This Blog.
