Be Kind, Re-Tweet

Matthew Keener - Friday, May 21, 2010

Now let's talk about getting your Tweets spread even further and increasing the chance of meeting even more people by using 're-tweetsí.

Re-tweeting is a common practice on Twitter where youíll re-post someone else's tweet that you like and you think your followers will like.

With this method, you take the original twitter message someone else has posted, and rebroadcast that same message to your followers. To do a re-tweet, simply type in RT at the beginning of your tweet and then a @ before the original tweeters username followed by their original tweet.

Now Twitter will let you click the Retweet button on the Twitter website which will set up the RT function automatically.
Reasons To Re-Tweet

When broadcasting the message, you should definitely give credit to the original poster in the way I showed you above.  I know at first it may sound like this will only be good for the original tweeter, but retweeting can actually benefit you just as much if not more because;

1.  It provides more value to your followers.

When you provide value to your followers, you make them happy! You are also more likely to attract followers. Providing quality content is always a great way to build your business no matter what platform you use.

2. It will benefit your brand.

If you point a reader to a source if good information that is truly relevant and beneficial to them, the amount of trust that they have in you will increase.

3. It will help you build relationships with the original posters.

Retweeting someone elseís content is an act of kindness, and for the most part bloggers like to return the favor. You shouldn't expect someone to re-tweet your content just because you retweet theirs. Just keep in mind that your chance of being on the other end of a re-tweet increases as you retweet.

Retweeting is all about providing value to your followers so if you want others to retweet your post then you want to make sure that you are providing them with quality content worth tweeting about.

The bottom line is retweeting is a great way to add quality and value to your Twitter page. If done right, retweeting can help you educate your followers, build your personal brand, increase future traffic, and connect you to other great people in your niche.

Just be careful if you use it incorrectly, retweeting can actually hurt your personal brand and future traffic. You want to treat your followers like gold. Don't ever send them to inappropriate websites or spam them with one sales pitch after another.
