Lately I’ve been experimenting a lot more with my Twitter account. I Tweeted a funny bus ad to San Francisco Water Power Sewer and they sent me a free water bottle, check it out below!

This cool little real-world interaction that spawned from virtual communication got me thinking about what my top retweets of the year have been. I dug around and found a useful little tool called TwitSprout, which showed me which of my Tweets got the most retweets. Below are the top three over the past few months – it’s no surprise they’re all tech related, as I tend to Tweet breaking tech news as my top content type.
My top Tweet was about Blackberry bringing BBM to other platforms like iOS and Android. Turns out people still like BMM, with 29 retweets of mostly rejoicing!

I even got a nice response from a tech follower in Italy on this one that garnered 21 retweets and 5 favorites:
