People always want to write tweets that will get reweeted. Writing the perfect tweet is both an art and a science with plenty of research pointing out what works and what doesn’t. However, when people are new on Twitter, they seem to just want me to give them a packet of quotes that will get retweeted so they don’t have to put in the work themselves. Honestly, you are more likely to be retweeted with your original content, but if you are not creative or don’t have time to think of pithy one-liners, borrowing someone else’s quotes can be helpful. So, below I have included some quotes that have been retweeted a lot.
