I would love to know some of the strategies people use to get retweeted. First off, your content must be good, and it would be really good if you kept in consistent contact with those that are your followers because they'll be more likely to retweet you.
Additionally, its also a good idea to ask people to retweet your tweet, you can also do this by adding the hashtage #RT #Retweet or please Retweet.
You'll find that I have written a lot of articles related to twitter, and many of them offer a lot of helpful advice when it comes to getting more twitter followers. Enjoy.
