Point 7; Leaving space. I think is becoming more common practice since the "RT" function on Twiter has been changed. this allows others to join the conversation and make their tweet make more sense as a stand alone tweet to their followers instead of having to look at what the tweet was replying to in a conversation.

 

The Idea of "tweet again" is new to me, I have seen the practice done by annonomus "funny" pages like and hobby pages like @relatabletweets @AboutVirgos who don't have a lot of new things to say and are usually trying to get as many Rt-->followers as possible therefore it is important for them to be at the top of their followers timelines to be seen. Whereas "celebrates very rearly tweet the same thing/topic twice unless they are promoting their work/tour or a competion or sponsor company.

Amazon vs. Netflix: Which is better? | New Media in Transition | Scoop.it
USA TODAY's Desair Brown speaks with tech reporter Brett Molina about Amazon's new deal and face-off with Netflix.
New Media in Transition's insight:

Cool and quick video on the benefits of having either subscription! I like that Netflix has newer shows, but also find it interesting and fun that Amazon is bringing old shows back. As a young adult, however, I think my preference sides with Netflix because of all the newer, more currently popular material it has.
