If I take a link you posted and tweet it, with my own text, and possibly my own shortening, and use HT or via to credit you as the source, do you want that to count as a retweet? Or is it only supposed to be a retweet if I use some of your text too? What if I got the link from your blog post rather than a tweet, but use HT or via to credit you?
