From our point of view, retweets are what really show the engagement you have with your followers. Liking a tweet is very easy, but by retweeting you are agreeing to what the original users has said. That is why users who retweet a tweet tend to be more faithful to stay in your followers list rather than those who just click the heart shaped button.
Since some years ago, it is impossible to think about the Brit Awards without thinking about Little Mix. Their performances in this show are difficult to forget, they always put up quite a show. This is their most retweeted tweet:
