In writing, an "mt" is a "mistype," such as a typo, misspelling, or grammatical error. People often utilize mt in emails, text messages, or online messages to point out a mistype.

Editors may use mt to refer to mistypes found in a person's work, such as an article or report. Or, a co-worker may use mt when correcting an email with incorrect information. Gamers may also use it in the game chat to rectify the wrong information previously sent.

2. What does MT stand for on Twitter?

Modified tweet

Twitter users use MT to mark a "modified tweet." These tweets are retweets that have been altered in some way.

Usually, an MT has been shortened, so the user retweeting it can add their thoughts to the original tweet. For example, you might see a tweet that reads "My favorite is South Korea. MT @TravelGuide What's the best country to visit as an American?" In this example, the user who posted the MT likely shortened @TravelGuide's question, so they could add their answer.
