Dearest Tweeps,*

This is an old tweet, but it still applies.

The truth is, social media in general is very organic. The major sites have made it as simple as possible to share things we like, be they videos, picture, or information. By asking for retweets you show an intense interest in gaming the system. The system being us.

People don’t like being played.

So get your shares and retweets the right way: Make killer content. That’s what people want anyway!

*For the uninitiated: Tweeps is Twitter slang for “Twitter People.”
