And if the poster uses the command, "Retweet" rather than "RT", the retweet rate increases twelve-fold...! Remember, less than 100 chars means +17% engagement, too. More than 2 +hashtags reduces this again by 17%!

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell shocked Washington by punting on a vote to repeal Obamacare, but he’s still searching for a way to revive the bill.
Paul's insight:

"If the bill failed, the GOP’s base could abandon them for not following through on the party’s years-long campaign against Obamacare. It would also be harder for Republicans to pay for a sweeping tax reform plan. President Donald Trump’s agenda could be mortally wounded."

Rosemarri Klamn's curator insight, July 8, 5:03 PM

Can learning be accessible to all?  With appropriate pedagogy and technology digital learning provides an opportunity for people who are marginalized by time, place, and distance to obtain education and training.  Not everyone has the opportunity to save for school, quit work and attend a traditional full-time education program (while balancing family responsibilities).
