  1. Thanks for sharing this infographic. I shared this on my website and gave you the credit. http://sociallygold.com/how-to-get-more-retweets/

  2. Hmm, I’m not sure about this infographic! For one, saying “PleaseRT!” looks a bit desperate to me, and I very rarely retweet anyone who does that. I certainly wouldn’t advise a client to do this, unless they were looking for a missing child or something.

    I’m also thinking the retweet rate on a Friday might be pushed higher by the ego bating trend that is #ff, with bloggers retweeting each other’s follow recommendations when they’re mentioned within.

    It’s all so top level that I wouldn’t want to rely on it. The best thing to do is analyse your own audience to find out what kind of information they’re likely to retweet, what hours they’re more likely to be online, and so forth. Targeting your social media campaign is one of the most important aspects that many people forget.
