TIP: Adopt social automation tools to schedule re-tweet thank you’s. (Social Oomph or Hootsuite are really good for this.)

It also indicates that you interact well with other users. Retweeting means that you’re not stealing or claiming other people’s posts as your own. Retweeting should, however, be done in moderation.
