The psychology of retweeting

Posted on: June 26, 2009

CNN had a special on retweeting. And, no, it wasn’t by someone with a lisp writing about US forces retreating from Iraq.

Thankfully CNN did not focus on Twitter as a phenomenon because that has been done to death. Instead, it dove into why followers retweeted tweets. (I can’t help but think how if I was writing this just five years ago, someone might have read my last sentence and concluded that I had gone mad!)

The reasons for retweeting aren’t astounding and seem rationale. But I was quite amazed at how many experts were weighing in on the issue. I wish more school leaders and adminstrators would sit up and take notice!
