Retweeters are people who loved this tweet so much that they want it to appear on their profile when someone reads it (more on this later). To do this, they click the "retweet" button next to the tweet they want to pass on. This will copy the text of the original tweet into their Tweet page with a link back to the source.
Some users may choose not to retweet certain messages. If this happens, they will simply not include a "retweet" button next to the message.
Users can also reply to other users' tweets. With this option, they will see another box where they can type their response. They can include links back to other pages on the site, as well as photos, videos, and files which can then be viewed by others if they choose to do so. Users can also comment on tweets, which will display comments below the original tweet. These can be done directly from the home page or through third-party applications on mobile devices. Comments are visible to everyone unless the user selects to hide them from public view.
To send a direct message (DM) to another user, you must first add them as a friend. Only friends can receive DMs. They can be sent via email or through some social networking sites such as Facebook.
A retweet is a re-posted tweet. The Retweet tool on Twitter allows you and others to easily share a tweet with all of your followers. You can retweet your own tweets as well as those of others. When someone retweets your tweet, they will include the original message along with your username indicating that you had something to do with its creation.
Generally speaking, yes, a retweet does count as a tweet. However, because retweets are used primarily for sharing information, some companies may consider them a form of advertising rather than communication. If this applies to you or your company, make sure to keep that in mind when deciding how to classify a retweet.
A retweet is the next step up after a like. A like indicates that you agree with the author of the tweet, but a retweet indicates that you agree so strongly with the author that you want to share their tweet with the rest of your followers. The more tweets that are retweets of yours, the more attention you will get from other users.
The main difference between liking and retweeting a tweet is that when you like a tweet, only you can see it. Anyone who follows you will be able to see that you have liked the tweet. However, if someone retweets your tweet, both you and the person who retweeted it will see it.
So, generally speaking, you should like tweets that you agree with and want to show your support for, while retweeting others' tweets that you find interesting or helpful.
However, there are times when doing either action will result in the same thing happening for you. If you like a tweet that someone else has already liked, then they will see that you have agreed with their opinion. At this point, there is no need to repeat yourself by also commenting on the tweet itself.
Similarly, if someone retweets something you have written, they will receive recognition for their work which is always appreciated. There is no need for further interaction at this point too.
Liking a tweet is similar to clicking "favorite" on Facebook or Google+.
Retweets are more powerful than likes because they make the tweet appear in your follower's feed. When someone retweets something you've said or done, they're saying, "This thing you wrote or did was important enough for me to spread around to my own followers." That person may not have liked your message, but they still find value in it. By sharing your tweet, they're showing their support and giving you credibility.
Likes are less significant than retweets, but they do help people discover new content from you. When someone clicks like on your tweet, they're indicating that they find the topic interesting enough to follow.
That being said, not everyone will see your like/retweet. Your followers can choose what information they want to share with others, and sometimes they may decide not to tell anyone about an article or video they like. If this happens too often, other users may start ignoring your requests altogether.
