RT stands for “retweet”

Ivy Wigmore Ivy Wigmore Profile: Ivy Wigmore

Retweet is a Twitter term that means to rebroadcast a message that someone else wrote (I say “someone else” but I have also seen people retweeting their own messages. Which always seems like cheating.) Retweeting is complimentary to the original tweeter and helps get them and their messages out to a wider audience.
