ReTweetie is a SIMBL plugin for Mac that makes Tweetie use Twitter’s native Retweeting functionality. No longer do you get a “RT @username: ” tweet, but instead a real #NewTwitter Retweet. Just Retweet your tweet as usual, and let ReTweetie handle the rest.

Who developed it?

We give thanks to Nick Paulson of Linebreak, developer of CloudApp and BaseApp, for open sourcing ReTweetie and letting folks peak under the hood of a SIMBL plugin.

Also, special thanks to Christina Warren of Mashable for mentioning this on Twitter.
