When Is It OK To Send Fake Retweets On Twitter? « Sleazy move from GOP

Answer: never.

It's never OK to pen a tweet that starts with "RT @username" and then make up something that that user didn't tweet. However, this simple rule appears to be too much for the National Republican Senatorial Committee (NRSC), whose Twitter account sent out a number of fake retweets yesterday "from" Harry Reid, Barack Obama and others – retweets that were never actually tweets to begin with.
