20 quick and easy ways to get more Twitter retweets (2)
Wondering how you can get more retweets and what you can do to boost your chances of getting retweeted? Here are 20 quick and easy ways. The previous edition had the first 10 ways which were
1. Use Mentions, 2. Use Links, 3. Be a Retweeter Yourself, 4. Use Hashtags, 5. ASK for a Retweet, 6. Place Your Link Carefully, 7. Optimize Your Tweet Length, 8. Reach Other Time Zones, 9. Don’t Flurry Tweet, 10. Tweet Great Content
11. Make Your Retweet Button Prominent
Having a retweet button on every page of your site is critical if you want your visitors to retweet your content. And make sure the button placement is prominent, so they don’t have to go looking for it!
12. Use Pictures
Tweets with pictures receive far more retweets than those without. In fact, they receive an average of .404 retweets, compared to .0133 for those without.
In particular, you will want to tweet Twitter pictures, as opposed to Facebook or Instagram pictures. These tweets are actually less likely to be retweeted!
13. Tweet at the Optimal Times
Tweeting on Sundays will increase your chances of getting a retweet, as will tweeting after work hours. Tweets sent out between 10-11pm receive more retweets than average.
14. Include a Number
Where relevant, use a number or digit within your tweet. Tweets containing numbers get retweeted 17% more often than those without.
15. Show Enthusiasm (!!!)
While you may not be entirely comfortable using lots of emotion in your tweets, using exclamation marks can actually increase the likelihood of getting retweets. In fact, using 6 exclamation marks produces around 0.299 retweets, while using 9 results in around 0.484 retweets!
16. Use CAPS
Tweets with a higher ratio of capital letters receive more retweets. Of course, balance this with some common sense – you probably don’t want to be TWEETING IN ALL CAPS ALL THE TIME!
17. Add, Well, Pretty Much
Anything to Your Tweets
Recent data released by Twitter confirms that adding pretty much anything ‘extra’ to your tweets will get you more retweets. Things like hashtags, digits, quotes, videos and PHOTOS!
18. Don’t Talk About Yourself
Tweets that contain a selfreference are retweeted less than those that don’t. So talk more about others, about issues, about anything other than yourself!
19. Focus on Popular Content
When asked what type
of content they like to retweet, respondents of one study indicated that they are most likely to retweet (these are in order of popularity): News, Instructional tweets, Entertainment, Opinion, Products and Small talk.
20. Talk About Twitter
People are more likely to retweet if your post mentions Twitter, as opposed to another social network.

The measures taken by FIFA against Barca will definitely serve as a bitter lesson to other teams across the globe. The implication is that the team would no longer hold its position as a FIFA world class football team since they don’t know how to comply with the football rules and regulations. I agree with FIFA because no club. no matter how great, is above the law. That can’t stop Barcelona football club from being the world best football club. After all Barcelona FC has the best football academy in the world. Barcelona football club is still the best club in the world. They should not accept the judgment, instead they should take FIFA to court.
