What does MT mean in a tweet?
Technical Twitter abbreviations:
MT = Modified tweet. This means the tweet you're looking at is a paraphrase of a tweet originally written by someone else.
RT = Retweet. The tweet you're looking at was forwarded to you by another user.
DM = Direct message. A direct-message is a message only you and the person who sent it can read. IMPORTANT: To DM someone all you need to type is
D username message.
PRT = Partial retweet. The tweet you're looking at is the truncated version of someone else's tweet.
HT = Hat tip. This is a way of attributing a link to another Twitter user.
CC = Carbon-copy. Works the same way as email.
