What is the Difference Between RT and MT?

twitter expertThis has come up a couple times this week, so I thought I would address it here and make all of you Twitter experts!

I am sure you know by now what a RT or Retweet is on Twitter. If not, it is just when you take someone else’s tweet and you share the post with your Twitter followers with full credit to the original post-er. This is how many links, quotes and information are passed through the Twitterverse.

What you also may have seen is people MT a post. The difference here is that the person resharing the post has Modified it in someway. Usually so that it can fit in the allotted 140 characters.

Hope that helps on your Twitter journey. Happy Tweeting!
