You can find me on Twitter at @inkyelbows (focus: writing and illustrating children's books) and @DebbieOhi (livetweets, chat, photos, personal ramblings). Also see my list of Other Useful Twitter Guides For Authors And Illustrators and Twitter Lists of: agents who represent kidlit/YAkidlit/YA editors, children's book art/creative directors and K-12/teen librarians on Twitter.

Search the FAQ for entries containing:

If you see an 'MT' where an 'RT' usually goes, it means that the user has modified the content of a tweet.

Andrew Spong has a good explanation of why someone would want to do this. Reasons could include correcting a typo, changing a hashtag to share it with another Twitter chat community, indicating that you've added or deleted an element of the tweet.

I don't tend to use MT because I'm not sure enough people know what it means yet.
