Fine-Tuning Twitter for Readers and Retweets
As a busy crossroads of information clippings, Twitter isn't necessarily a place to get easily noticed or retweeted. So here, from Dan Zarella of Hubspot via Heidi Cohen, are "16 Ridiculously Easy Ways to Increase Retweets." Zarella found, for instance, that "including one or more hashtags in a tweet increased the tweet's likelihood of being retweeted by over 55 percent." And including quotation marks can make a tweet 30 percent more likely to be passed along. 

If you're interested in Twitter as a PR outlet, and it's a good one, it's worth spending time to fix Zarella's tips in mind as you frame and post tweets. We thank Heidi Cohen for passing Zarella's Twitter tips along.
