When to Retweet: Part 2 MarketingMel’s Twitter 101 Series with Social Media Online Classes

Did you see the news that twitter is the number one social network of choice among the Fortune 500? All of the Fortune top 10 and 62 percent of the Fortune 500 companies are on twitter. As the article states they no doubt love twitter’s openness and simplicity. Facebook comes in a close second. It is used by 58 percent of the Fortune 500. As you know if you saw my video last week, I’m in agreement with the big guns when it comes to the power of twitter when building a brand. My good online friend Maria Peagler was kind enough to invite me to guest teach during the twitter portion of her Social Media Online Classes. In the second of our four part series, I discuss what a retweet is and when to use the “RT.” I actually cut this video before all of the recent discussion about journalists re-tweeting, the A.P.’s recent ruling on RTs and whether or not an RT implies consent. In my opinion a re-tweet is definitely implied consent!
