Wow! This week’s chat was full of useful tips on the Twitter retweet (RT). I want to thank everyone who participated and helped spread the word. A big thanks to Sysomos’ Community Manager Sheldon Levine @sysomos  for co-hosting the chat.
#smmeasure chat #3 recap
Last week , we gave our chatters a variety of “versus” scenarios and many participants enthusiastically provided us with their wisdom. This week we centered our discussion around the Twitter retweet (RT). Below is just a small taste of the great conversation we had. A full transcript  is also available.
Q1: What does being RT’d mean to you?
Q2: What do you do to get yourself RT’d? Do you have any secrets for getting RT’d?
Q3: Do you measure how many times a message is RT’d or how many people that RT potentially reached, i.e., impressions?
Food for thought:
Funny tweet of the chat:
