I'm new to twitter so apologies for the stupid question, but how do I re-tweet on twitter and if it's for a competition entry how will you know I have?

To re-tweet you can cut and paste the whole comment. Add the letters RT (in capitals) and the tweet name of the person you are re-tweeting at the beginning of the tweet and post.

so, if @MumsnetTowers tweeted the word


your tweet would read

RT @MumsnetTowers BiscuitGate

Does that help??

Thanks for explaining, Macdog.

And don't worry, kslatts, we can see all retweets, so your name will automatically go into the comps entry hat.

There's a new 'retweet' facility for some people but not all (not sure why) if you hovver your mouse over the tweet, have a look at the bottom right hand corner, the word 'retweet' sometimes appears in red, just click it.
