Success on Twitter depends on retweets and followers.Twitter success

One thing I love about the internet is the vast storage of knowledge. And nearly everyone is giving credit where credit is due.

Newspaper reporters always made sure to check their sources, and reputable bloggers do the same. We don’t simply look at a post and repost or retweet, we go to the source to find out if it’s true and still give credit to the agency that brought it to our attention.

Getting your message out, and rebroadcasting in various mediums, is one of the most important things you can do. Ragan Communications has an article by Chris Lake, a director of innovation at (where this article orignally ran). Chris’ article was based on Dan Zarrella’s 22-page report on The Science of ReTweets.

He goes into detail about these 10 steps…

  • Timing
  • Why People like to share links
  • Keep it personal
  • Slow down
  • Types of Tweets 
  • Hashtags help
  • A call to action
  • ‘Please RT’
  • Leave a little space
  • Adjectives
