The Value of Retweeting Other Twitter Users Tweets

If you’ve been on Twitter for any length of time, you likely know that there are three main options when it comes to someone’s tweets – Reply, Retweet, and Favorite. In this article, we are going to focus on the “Retweet” option and the value behind you retweeting someone else’s tweets and someone else retweeting your tweets.

You should retweet someone else’s tweet when you find value in it and/or you like what was said, so much so that you feel that your followers will benefit from it as well (whether it’s valuable information or just a good laugh). This retweet will post that tweet to your followers. The tweet will begin your username, followed by “RT” (stands for “retweet”) and the username of the person who wrote the original tweet, then the tweet itself.

Sometimes, all of that information will cause you to go over the 140-character count limit, thereby nullifying your ability to send the tweet. This is why you are allowed to modify the tweet, known as a “modified tweet,” which is signified by the initials “MT.”  The main message of the tweet is intact, but you modify it accordingly so that you can send it out to your subscribers. You are allowed to add some commentary or additional information if you wish as well.

Now, what value do you actually get when you retweet someone else’s tweet?  After all, you might think, “Well, won’t that cause my followers to follow that person instead?”

Yes, that is certainly a possibility, but you should NOT look upon that as a bad thing. On the contrary, this is often a good thing for several reasons. One reason is that your subscribers will appreciate that you passed along the information to them, which will boost your credibility as an expert in your field. The fact that you provided additional sources of information for your followers and were willing to take the time to send it to them will be greatly appreciated by your followers.

Another reason why it’s important and critical for you to retweet other Twitter users’ tweets is because, if those users are not following you yet, the fact that you are retweeting their tweets may convince them to follow you, which can only boost your credibility as an expert. If they start following you, your tweets will start showing up in their tweet feed, which can make it more likely that they will start retweeting your tweets to their followers, which can potentially boost the number of subscribers you receive.

As you can see, the power of retweeting is evident in the fact that you can gain almost instant credibility as an expert in your field by retweeting other people’s tweets. This will show your followers that you are up-to-date on the current information in your industry, plus you are willing to share this information with your followers. Additionally, retweeting other people’s tweets may encourage them to follow you if they aren’t already, thereby increasing your ability to connect with other prominent people in your industry, as well as potentially gain connections with their followers as well.  Therefore, using the “Retweet” function on Twitter can be an effective and easy way to boost your reputation and credibility in your industry.
