The Top 20 Most Retweeted Words

I recently attended a Hubspot webinar entitled "The Science of Retweets" that shed some light on a handful of factors that comprise a retweetable tweet (try saying that five time fast).

Some of the tips promised to help your retweetability rate included:

  • Incorporate a link (preferably a bit.ly, which provides tracking and analytic capabilities)
  • Politely ask to be retweeted
  • Limit your tweets to around 115-120 characters
  • Share interesting and compelling content

One of the more interesting tidbits of information shared in the webinar came in the form of a "Top 20 Most Retweetable Words" list. I know, try and contain your excitement. As most serious Twitterer's know, a retweet (often denoted by an "RT") is the sincerest form of flattery on the popular social media network.

However, getting retweeted also significantly increases your visibility, syndicating your tweet across a slew of various networks that you may never had access to before. So, without any further ado, here are the 20 Most Retweetable Words:

1) You 2) Twitter 3) Please 4) Retweet 5) Post 6) Blog 7) Social 8) Free 9) Media 10) Help 11) Please Retweet 12) Great 13) Social Media 14) 10 15) Follow 16) How to 17) Top 18) Blog post 19) Check out 20) New blog post

Happy Tweeting and Good Luck!
