When someone pretends to be retweeting (RT) a tweet from a famous person in order to make themselves look like they have famous friends.
This is a Fake Retweet: Wow. Thanks! RT @Slash: You know what band rocks? @strawfootmusic that's who! (Slash never said this, but it's written to make it look like he did.)
