RTwE Means Re-Tweet With Edits
I can’t ever properly Re-Tweet a truly interesting Tweet. That is because truly interesting tweets come from people who care about Tweeting interesting things. That means they don’t necessarily care about chopping their tweet down small enough to be re-Tweetable like those who care more about getting exposure and re-tweets than putting up interesting things in the first place.
Furthermore, a truly interested Re-Tweet often requires comment. For example, why you chose to Re-Tweet, or because you want to draw attention to a particular piece of the Re-Tweet. Either way, I’m tired of trying to make it work and worrying that someone might take offense.
Thus, I hereby declare that RTwE shall evermore stand for Re-Tweet With Edits.
So, if you have to trim a Tweet in order to either A) just be able to re-tweet it at all, or B) to be able to make a comment on the original tweet, then you can put RTwE instead of the usual RT in your Tweet.
For those of you who don’t want people to comment on your Tweets, then either we’ll make our own short-URL and just do a Tweet without giving you credit, or we’ll just jam your username in at the end. Either way, I have no intention of just parroting what someone else says. What is the point of that?
If you’ll excuse me, I’m off to update the Wikipedia page.
