A thought from a conversation with @nextbrett…if you want to promote something on Twitter, how do you get retweets?

If it’s really interesting – people may RT on their own.

But what’s the least offensive way to get a popular twitterer to retweet you?

After all, if we all posted ‘pls RT’ all the time it would get boring, and annoying. On the other hand, there are some stories you need to hit tipping point, and a request to RT gives that extra push to spread the word.

I would go for the personalised DM approach…what do you think?
