30 Ways to Say Thank You for a Re-Tweet

When somebody retweets (RT) your tweets, the best thing you can do is respond by RT’ing their tweets. But saying thank you in a tweet is also a great way to acknowledge somebody for supporting you.

Some may argue it fills the airways by thanking, but I’m of the opinion that a public thank you acknowledges the individual for doing you a favor. By recognizing them, others will know they are supportive on Twitter, and in turn that may gain them new followers. So a public thank you on Twitter can boost the experience for that individual.

My favorite RT Thank You’s
As I’ve watched conversations on Twitter, I’m struck by some of the great ways people have said thank you. Here are some of my favorite thank you’s from people I’ve re-tweeted:

  • @Mazukins: Thank u my precious friend for the RT – ur awesome!!!! hugs mazey 🙂
  • @sharynread: Thank u 4 your kindness, blessings 4 your 2010
  • @MartyMisner: Thanks, I am honored and very appreciative!
  • @soulbizradio: Much appreciation for your interactions….have a magical day
  • @techjoomla: We are honoured!
  • @robertbravery: Thanks for the great plug!

The following wasn’t a RT thank you, but in reply to a RT thank you. When I read this, it made me smile broadly: @JDEbberly: No prob there, Landau! Love your work! Keep up those tweets – I’ll be RT’ing you even more as I ply the Twitter Superhighway. This kind of a thank really epitomizes the reason we all use Twitter, doesn’t it?

    Quite a brilliant post there Bonnie.
    Not because it mentions me, thanks by the way, but because it brings to home the true meaning of being social.

    When Someone says thank you on Twitter, not a auto response, but a true heart felt thank you, it just lifts the spirit and makes it all worth while.

    So in that vain, this is a thank you to you:

    My Bonnie lies over the ocean
    My Bonnie lies over the sea
    My Bonnie lies over the ocean
    So send over a thank you for me.
