Definition: RT [Retweet]

RT stands for ‘retweet’ in social media.

A retweet on Twitter is when a user posts something that another user has posted. There are two ways this can happen – either by posting so the retweet appears in their timeline exactly as it was originally posted, or else by copying the text and appending RT and the username of the original tweeter to the beginning of the tweet.
