    14. 14. Tiny URL URL-shortening sites like TinyUrl, bit.ly and Tinycc come in extremely handy when youre recommending links and still have something to say about it (which you should - never drop blind links). Paste the long domain and the site will convert it into a 25-characters-or-less shortened link. Great way to share photos, blogs, etc.http://www.canadagames2011.ca/en/home/sportsvenues/sports/biathlon.aspx http://bit.ly/bxP8mS

    16. 16. Retweet (RT) If someone tweets something that interests you and you feel it would interest your followers, you retweet it for your readers. Think of it as forwarding an email to everyone in your network It essentially quotes that person’s tweet and gives them the credit, so people can see the tweet and follow that person
    17. 17. How to Retweet RTCopy the text of the tweet you like, making sure to pay attentionto the user that you are copying from.Then scroll up to your text entry box at the top, and begin yourtweet with "RT @username: " then paste your copied text.Or select retweet at the bottom of their message in your newsfeed
    18. 18. How Do I Make My Tweets, RE-Tweetable? Someone can’t retweet you if you take up all 140 characters, add up the number of characters in your twitter handle, and add 5 characters. Subtract that number from 140. That’s how many characters you have to work with.140 - # of characters in Twitter Name - 5 = maximum tweet length for retweeting
