Should You ReTweet?

A  ReTweet is when you re-send someone else’s tweet or when they do it for you. It’s one of the  best features of Twitter and one of the things that makes it such a viral and incredible platform for your business. You  may be asking yourself “Why should you bother to ReTweet other people’s tweets?”

There are several reasons for ReTweeting. First, it’s good Twitter Karma! When you ReTweet, people appreciate it and they will be more likely to read your tweets and,  in turn, ReTweet you. Second, if you want to be ReTweeted  then one way to make that happen is to be generous in your ReTweeting of others. Why do you want to be ReTweeted? Imagine you have 500 followers… at any given moment some percentage of them are online and may or may not read your tweet… but if someone who has 3000 followers  or 10,000 followers likes what you tweeted and ReTweets it, not only will your tweet be in front of far more people, it’s also like a mini-referral – people will be more open to reading it and clicking on any links that may be included there. It’s like being able to borrow a little bit of their reputation with their following.

Third, it’s a great way to share related and valuable  information you find on Twitter with your followers, making your followers more likely to read your tweets. Fourth, it can help build your followers. When people see that ReTweet, they may like what they read and  decide to follow you. Of course you do want to be careful and be very selective  of the tweets you choose to ReTweet. Your ReTweets say a lot about the type of person or business you are so be sure to always select tweets that will enhance your reputation.

Here is link to a cool tool that tell you what your ReTweet Rank is:  Retweet rank is a representative of the number of times a user have been retweeted by others recently. It lets you find the rank of any twitter user. Also, the top ranked twitter users, who have been most retweeted recently, are listed in the leaderboard.
