Re-Tweets expand you reach as an individual or company and can contribute additional website traffic, subscribers and customers.  There is social media etiquette, most of these “don’ts” also apply in-person in real life. Make the mistakes outlined in this post and it can cause your content to be ignored and not get Re-Tweeted!

2. Ask for the Re-Tweet – If you want Re-Tweets, ask for them.

3. Include a an interesting link –People love to spread links to content they like.
