    How to ask for a retweet: Should I add the person’s “@username” at the beginning or at the end of the tweet?
    Or is it better to contact the person by Email?

    Thanks for these tips. There is nothing, in my opinion, less professional than those automatic DM messages asking for retweets and follows. Even those that say thanks for the follow make me think about lack of creativity and personalization.

    Hey!

    I totally love the idea of giving more retweets back when you get retweet. Totally — karma!

    Good stuffs and makes all the sense. For those who retweeted my post, I usually send over a Favorite instead. Just a little thing to say “thank you!”

    Thanks for sharing!

      Hi Reginald! Thank you for reading my post and leaving such a nice comment. 🙂 Twitter favorites have become incredibly useful for so many reasons over the past few years. That’s a great use of them!

    Hey Diana,

    Okay this is what I am talking about. AWESOME TIPS!

    One thing I could add would be to number 5.
    “5. Tap into the magic of three. Use a link, an image, and a hashtag in the tweet you’d like retweeted. All three of these things will make your tweet more attractive and appear more retweetable.”

    OPTION: You can add twitter cards to your website, you still get a image attached to your tweet, it takes up less room in the tweet and the image is clickable. No twitter cards, then an image is a really good idea.

    (Using the Yoast plugin makes it fairly easy to add twitter cards)

    My very best,

    Sean Charles @SocialMediaSean

    Thanks for all the Instagram love by the way.

      Hi Sean!! It’s so great to see you here. I’m very happy you liked this post. 🙂 You gave some very good advice. And I looooove the Yoast plugin! You might be able to tell that it’s not used on this blog, but it is on most of the blogs where I guest post. And, of course, it’s my pleasure about IG. I get lost on that site. hahahaha Best wishes to you!

    I concur with you Diana. Spammy DMs and DMers are a bother and a waste of time. If you want your retweets, engage, establish good relationships with other influencers, and you will get there – people will retweet what you’re contributing.

      Thank you for stopping by and reading my post, Enock. 🙂 I completely agree with you. I just had a whole convo with @MarshaCollier about this recently. Have a great day!

        Thanks for the post Diana!

        After a 9-month hiatus, I rejoined the Twitter universe. A couple of weeks ago, after seeing a few DM’s with CrowdFire, I decided to try it.

        That lasted a day!

        I had followed an influencer. He then reciprocated, however that short-lived. Once I saw who had unfollowed me through CrowdFire, I looked at his profile to see a tweet, “Sending auto-DM’s to new followers with a link to your website is like moving in after the first date, without asking.”

        Right away I got rid of the service.

        Lesson learned very quickly!

        1. Diana Adams

          Hi Jean. That is so funny!! Well, not really, but you know. Yeah, I’ve sent tweets like that before too (about how much I dislike auto-DMs). I get dozens of them every day, and after a while, it starts to wear on you (especially since those notifications eat away at my phone battery).

          Thank you for stopping by and reading my post! Best wishes to you! 🙂
