OK, so I’ve been using Twitter a lot since Friday when I opened my account. But I don’t understand what the hell any of these acronyms or special symbols do – I know what # and @ do, but what is RT?

    A RT means “retweet.” It’s when you repeat what someone else wrote on Twitter. You usually use it when you really like what they wrote – or in KOMU’s case, we retweet reporter tweets to spread the word about what our reporters are working on.
