Hat Tip

Tweeters use HT to give a "hat tip" to another user. This is a way of crediting the other user for providing an idea, comment, or link. For example, if a tweet says "HT to @AwesomeUser for pointing that out," it means the idea in the tweet originally came from @AwesomeUser.

In ye olden days, people tipped their hats at others as a sign of respect. On Twitter, HT is also a sign of respect - because it gives credit to those who originated (or originally shared) an idea.

Example

HT to @SlangBoy for their awesome definition of HT.

On Twitter, HT is a virtual hat tip
