Should you repeat your tweets? Facts and figures from 1M tweets

Should you repeat your tweets? Facts and figures from 1M tweets | Social Media: Don't Hate the Hashtag | Scoop.it
It is mainstream that to share a news on Twitter one should repeat it a few times, for the simple reason that your followers aren't up online on twitter all day and that they are likely to miss your great news.
At Wisemetrics we like to look a statistics from lots of data points, and since we have our hand on around 1B tweets, we thought we could get some concrete numbers about if one should repeat tweets.

Texas teen tweets herself out of pizzeria job | Social Media: Don't Hate the Hashtag | Scoop.it
A Texas teen lost her job at a Dallas area pizzeria before she even started after she tweeted out how she hated the new gig.
GwynethJones's insight:

WOW....this is another example of an unattractive sense of entitlement that some of our kiddos exhibit. Rather than be embarrassed over being fired and called out, she's unrepentant and proud! WOW!


Being E-Famous will not pay the bills. Esp. with this attitude. And months later, people still find this story and RT it. Also, the comments are interesting.


That being said, I'm REALLY glad there wasn't social media when I was growing up. I shudder to think the mistakes I would have made!
