How Do You ReTweet?

While talking with friends on Twitter this morning; a thought came to my mind:  How do we, as individual Twitter users, retweet?  At it’s core, the retweet (or “RT” for short) allows Twitter users to share the best links, tweets, and conversations they find helpful or useful.Do more Twitter users RT for the sake of the RT or are they truly wanting to share information.  I ask these questions because I keep seeing people RT greetings from others and tweets that, in my opinion, doesn’t warrant a RT.  I know there is no official right or wrong way to use Twitter, but I wonder sometimes if we get wrapped up in the “noise” and RT instead of sharing useful information or original thoughts.Just some thoughts running through my mind today.  What are your thoughts?

  1. I am an information Junkie and I enjoy good quotes, tweets, and links to great material. If I find something insightful, I share (RT) making the assumption that others would like to consume that material like I did. I try to be a Human Filter for folks.
