TweetDeck helps social media managers control multiple profiles on Twitter, Facebook and other platforms. Its all-in-one interface helps businesses broadcast their brand and message to a large number of people with minimal effort, but broadcasting is only half the social media marketing equation. The other half is responding to and sharing what the audience is saying as well. Retweeting is one way businesses can build customer relationships. TweetDeck makes retweeting simple, but the method differs slightly depending on whether you use the desktop application on your computer, a Web browser or your smartphone application.
Launch the TweetDeck desktop application on your computer and locate the tweet you want to retweet.
Video of the Day
Hover your mouse over the user avatar adjacent to the tweet. This replaces the avatar with four small buttons, the lower left of which is a rightward-facing "Retweet" arrow.
Click the "Retweet" arrow. Click "Retweet Now" to immediately send the tweet. If you prefer to edit or add commentary to the retweet, click "Edit Then Retweet." Edit the tweet as needed and click "Send."
Web and Chrome
Launch the TweetDeck Chrome application if you are using the Google Chrome Web browser, or navigate to the TweetDeck Web application (link in Resources) if you are using any other type of browser. Locate the tweet to retweet.
Hover your mouse over the tweet and click the "Retweet" button that appears. The button is not labeled, but you can identify it by its two arrows—one facing upward, the other facing downward.
Click the button labeled "Retweet" to confirm and post the retweet. If you prefer to edit the retweet before posting it, click "Edit and RT." Change the tweet as needed and click "Tweet."
Launch the TweetDeck mobile app on your smartphone and locate the tweet you want to retweet.
Tap the tweet. This displays it in a separate screen inside the TweetDeck app.
Tap "Retweet." Edit the tweet if needed and tap "Send." If the retweet contains more than 140 characters or if you want to want to use Twitter's standard retweet format, tap "Retweet Classic" at the top of the screen to change it to "Retweet New," then tap "Send."
