A few of the publications and links I've been reading have mentioned the importance of Retweeting to attract more followers on Twitter.
So, as an experiment, I retweeted the link to the "Those who can, tweet" article that I mentioned in my previous blog post (retweeted from @MoodleMcKean).
24 hours later, I have another 5 new followers. This, after having only a trickle of followers since I properly started Tweeting back in November time.
My conclusion, therefore, is that the Retweet is a most powerful tool if you wish to gain followers....
