A retweet is where another Twitter user reposts your tweet onto their news feed, so that any users following their account will see it. It’s a popular method of spreading information and media swiftly, and to promote other users and events.

It can be easy to tweet and retweet almost instantly, but it's always a good idea to stop for a moment and think about what you're retweeting. Some content might be hilarious or shocking to view, but do you really want it appearing in your feed and be linked to you? Retweeting hurtful or abuse comments can escalate cyberbullying, and get you into huge trouble.
