Do you want to get more retweets*? Retweeting isn’t just about tweeting good content, there’s actually science behind it.
From the words you use in your tweet to the time of day you tweet, all of these factors impact how many retweets you are going to get. So, if you are looking for your tweets to spread all over Twitter, follow the steps in the infographic below.
Build Your Audience: This one’s a bit of a no-brainer but it often goes unsaid: your chances of generating a large number of retweets increase exponentially with the size of your Twitter audience.
Give The People What They Want: This might also seem blatantly obvious, but is so easily overlooked. To increase your chances of retweets and clicks, or to even ensure that somebody is reading your stuff, you have spend some time educating yourself about what exactly it is your network respond to, wants to read and, here’s the kicker, is willing to share with their friends.
If You Can’t Be The Best, Be The First: If you’re sharing news try and be the first to do so. And if you can’t be the first, be the first to make it interesting: put a unique spin on the story. If you’re tweeting your own stuff, always be original and creative. Make people want to read and share your content.
Leave Enough Space: Twitter introduced its new-style retweet back in November 2009, which is an eternity ago in the social media space. And while many millions of people only use this kind of retweet, many millions of others – especially veteran users – do not.
The Trick Is To Get Them To Read It First: Here’s the secret in a nutshell: you won’t get a retweet if somebody doesn’t think your tweet is worth retweeting, so if what you’re saying isn’t worth reading, then it’s fair to say that retweets aren’t coming your way. Again, it’s different for celebrities. But for us regular folk, we have to convince others to retweet our content, and to do that we have to also convince them to read it. No read, no retweet.
*Abbreviated as RT, Retweet is used on the Twitter Web site (a free social messaging tool), to show you are tweeting content that has been posted by another user. The format is RT @username where username is the twitter name of the person you are retweeting.
