Twitter happens to be one of my favorite social media channels. Some of the reasons for this:
1) It moves very quickly
2) Twitter boasts a huge variety of people
3) It enables connections with folks you’d have difficulty accessing otherwise
4) Conversation is happening 24/7
5) Covers breaking news with live witness reports
6) Global reach
Retweets are a great way to grow your followers as well as increase your social media Klout.
