Dear PleaseRetweet, If you are going to retweet, do it right.



This is not right. Rick_S sent a tweet to me, and PleaseRetweet retweeted him, BUT left off HIS name, so it looks like PleaseRetweet is retweeting me.

They are not.

Original Tweet:

Rick__S: @stevegarfield Help the charity "Playing For Change", change the wrld thru music. Buy these tunes! http://tinyurl.com/5neqfw (expand) PLEASE RETWEET!
about 5 hours ago

Retweeted as:

PleaseRetweet: RT @stevegarfield Help the charity "Playing For Change", change the wrld thru music. Buy these tunes! http://t.. http://tinyurl.com/dlwooz
about 5 hours ago

Should have been retweeted as:

PleaseRetweet: RT @Rick__S @stevegarfield Help the charity "Playing For Change", change the wrld thru music. Buy these tunes! http://t.. http://tinyurl.com/dlwooz
about 5 hours ago

If you are going to name yourself after a funtion of twitter, at least do it correctly.

  1. I'm not a heavy Twitter-er, but if it requires me to learn a whole new way to write, type, reply, etc... maybe it's just not the technology for me.

    For example: I have NO CLUE what retweeting is all about, never mind what your tweet was about in the first place.
