Retweets of Retweets

I’m now starting to see retweets of retweets!

I had created a Christmas music post for Doug Hammer on my blog at “http://dpw67.wordpress.com“, and also publicized it on my Twitter blog account @dpw67blog.

He favorited my blog post announcement tweet, and even more importantly he retweeted it to his 5,332 followers. Now 2 different recipients of his retweet have each separately retweeted his retweet, one to 229 followers and the other to 169 followers.

This cascading of retweets can really multiply blog exposure. Once I get the hang of this, Twitter definitely looks promising as a vehicle to extend my blog’s reach to more readers.
