It is also important to remember you cannot retweet your own tweet so you may need to have someone else help you test it.

This way you make sure it works before sharing it.

Customization

If you want to make your Twitter retweet links standout even more, you can also turn it into a button.

This way your retweet is more visible to your audience.
