POLL: Which Kind Of Retweet Do You Do?

When Twitter’s internal retweet system (code-named Project Retweet) launched late last year I was one of a number of people who was resistant to the development. I’d grown accustomed to the original retweet (RT @ or via) and being unable to edit messages to add your own flavour was a major drawback of the new mechanism.

Things change. Over time I found myself using the new system, first on a very occasional basis but later with increased frequency. I’ve also noticed that other users appear to be retweeting my stuff more and more using the new-style RT – veterans and newcomers alike.

Sometimes, a tweet is so good that all you need to do is hold it up for other people to see. Twitter’s retweet button works perfectly here.

For certain occasions I still prefer the original RT, or more commonly via, which had always been my share method of choice. I don’t think I’ll ever go completely over to the dark side until Twitter gives us at least some edit options, even if it’s just for the free characters in the tweet.

But what about you? Are you sticking hard-and-fast to the old school retweet, or did you move straight over to Twitter’s method? Perhaps, like me, you do a bit of both? Or maybe you don’t retweet at all.

Whatever your answer, please vote in the poll below, and hit the comments to share your thoughts with me.
