Option to expand 'RT' and 'OH'

Turn 'RT' into 'ReTweet' and 'OH' into 'Overheard'. Any other common Twitterisms we should be handling?

        As Twitter wants to implement RT themself, it could be better to wait some time and use the new format.

        How about expanding "RT @[username]" to "[Name] says:"?

        I don't know about any other abbreviations people might want to expand, but rt is by far the most common. I'm unsure what the expanded text should be though. Many of my friends aren't big into social networking, they use facebook for the basics of sharing pictures with family. They don't know what twitter is and retweet probably wouldn't mean anything to them either.

        Trying to track the latest abbreviations could get cumbersome... it seems while there are a few commonly used, different people use different abbreviations.

        I would expand RT into "Fwd:" - shorter and easier to understand.
