Favorite (v.)

Tap the star icon to favorite a Tweet and the author will see that you liked it.

Retweet (n.), RT

A Tweet that you forward to your followers is known as a Retweet. Often used to pass along news or other valuable discoveries on Twitter, Retweets always retain original attribution.

That’s Twitter’s explanation of what the two are, but let me tell you about the real difference.

When you favourite someone’s tweet, its like you really like what they said, but not enough to show to people. Favouriting is like appreciating something, but hiding that appreciation from your followers. Twitter now shows people your favourites, but you don’t know when, so it doesn’t really matter.

Favouriting something on Twitter is always great because later on you can check your favourites and see if some are worth Retweeting. And if you get really bored, looking through your favourites is always entertaining.

When you Retweet somebody, you are showing people on your timeline this tweet. If you have 10 followers, 100 followers or even 1000 followers, you are showing them your Retweet. A retweet is always better than a favourite for someone because it shows you mess with the tweet so much, you are willing to show it. The person who is getting retweeted will always be credited with the tweet, so it’s a win/win for everybody. You can also quote a tweet, but who cares about that. When you get Retweeted, its like all right, real recognize real.

So, a Retweet is showing people that you feel the same way and a Favourite is hiding the fact.
