Top 50 Most Retweetable Quotes

Top 50 Most Retweetable Quotes

Your Twitter fan base will sometimes retweet information or links you share, but most followers will more frequently retweet tweets that are short, compelling, encouraging, and motivational. Getting “retweeted” is extremely valuable in helping you increase your Twitter fan base and the recognition of your personal brand. As people retweet your messages, they can literally reach millions of people over a relatively short period of time.

Below is a list of more than 50 quotations which continually generate thousands of retweets. They are presented in a format for you to easily copy, paste and tweet. Each one is about 120 characters or less (including quotation marks and reference).  You can also just click “Tweet this!” after each one, and it will automatically go to Twitter for you!

Pick the ones that you like most and share them with your followers. Those who share your values will retweet and share them with others, and your Twitter fan base, and theirs, will grow exponentially – very quickly.
