Why I Retweet

There are several reasons. In no particular order:

  • I like the message in the tweet. I resonate with it. 
  • I like the link – typically a pointer to good reading material
  • Because it provides a different point of view 
  • I use it as a marker in my life – a part of my daily log
  • It is a hat tip to the author who causes me to pause and think. 
  • I think this tweet requires recognition and I would like to spread the idea
  • It may be a part of a discussion. I jump in and do my two bits.
  • It may be an event and I want to share it (a picture, a quote, a sound bite)
  • Same reason I tweet – to start a conversation
  • Same reason I tweet – to ask a question
