An Academic Look at RTHX

RTHX is highly unusual as it can be described as a portmanteau abbreviation. (NB: A Portmanteau word is the term to describe when two words are merged into one. SPEXY (from spectacles and sexy) is example of a portmanteau word.)

RTHX is used as a standalone declarative sentence (i.e., a statement), which translates best as "I thank you for your retweet." In other words, it is not used as another part of speech within a wider sentence.
