Do you ever use the Retweet button on websites?

Been reading some interesting stuff on people's use of the retweet button you find on websites. Lots of it is really conflicting so I thought I would fire up a quick post to get some feedback.

Do you typically use the retweet/tweet button on the site you visit if you find the content interesting and you want to share it or would you use your twitter client to create it another way?

I've used the tweet button quite a few times but just wondering if i'm the norm or not :p

Nope - I never do. And for someone who loves social media it's quite astonishing :) I don't know - I think I'm a lazy searcher and the way twitter retweet works, it takes me out of my stride, opens another window and makes me log in to my twitter account. Basically, I'm too lazy to wait for all that to happen. Very selfish :w00t::thumbup::lol:

I find these buttons work best in markets where people are "internet friendly" and have been exposed to twitter and facebook like/retweet buttons for a while. If your business caters towards an older generation, it will be extremely hard to get them to "retweet" or "like" your content - most likely because they don't even have accounts on those platforms!
