    • RT - If someone writes a tweet that you want to share again, you can re-tweet their message.  If someone re-tweets your tweet, it is normal to thank them for the 'RT'

Share your blog posts - Start a blog! Share your posts with the world.  If you don't have a large following try tagging your tweet with a specific hashtag so more people can see the tweet.
