When it comes to advice, generating retweets on Twitter is up there with losing weight and making money.
Plug [how to generate retweets] into Google, and you can access around 500,000 pieces of content on this social media topic:
- Include links
- Leverage hashtags
- Tweet at the right time
- Leave room for retweets
- Use inspiring quotes
And the list goes on.

Of course, if everyone starts taking these actions, their effectiveness will decline.
But I have a hunch that’s not going to happen.
