How you can get retweeted

Do you want to know what kind of tweets get spread? Dan Zarrella has the answers. For example, 70% of retweets contain links compared to 20% in “regular” tweets. Here are more interesting facts:

1. Retweets have nouns and third-person verbs—that is, they refer to someone or something doing something.

2. The word “you” is the most likely word to occur in retweets compared to tweets.

3. The least retweetable words include “going,” “watching,” “work,” “home,” “well,” and “tired.”

Dan examines other parameters such as level of reading and novelty of the words in the tweet. In a nutshell, his findings show that you should provide interesting links because few people give a shiitake about your feelings.
