On Twitter, the retweet is the ultimate “hey, look at this!” Retweets are an acknowledgment, in most cases an appreciation (but not always), of the original tweeters’ comment.
Twitter keeps track of the retweet count. And like high school, getting retweeted can be a bit of a popularity contest.
So here they are. Some witty and clever and edgy. Others banal and self-serving. Let’s countdown the top ten most retweeted tweets of 2010!
Don’t focus on the one guy who hates you. You don’t go to the park and set your picnic down next to the only pile of dog s***.

Just noticed Twitter keeps prompting me to “Add a location to your tweets”. Not falling for that one.

We always ignore the ones who adore us, and adore the ones who ignore us.
