Why do people say they “tweeted out” whatever it is they posted to their Twitter feed?

Tweeted out: can you tweet in?

Up?

Down?

Sideways?

Diagonal?

I mailed the letter.

I emailed the document.

I shipped the package.

The word “out” is unnecessary. It is redundant. To tweet is to do the “out.” There is, in fact, no tweet without the “out.” #justtweetnoout

Now if you will excuse me I mist go and annoy people elsewhere.
