Issue #105  (Naps Linked to Improved Cognitive Function) 02/15/21

If you run a startup or freelance business, one thing you like to see is one of your social media posts going viral, driving you more business leads and opportunities.

An interesting thread on Twitter by Trevor McKendrick examines What gets a tweet retweeted. He shows examples in 10 categories of tweets.

What gets a tweet retweeted?

While I do think there's some value in what he's demonstrating in this thread, you should take it with a grain of salt. Most of the accounts that tweeted these things are from blue checkmarks and others with tens of thousands of followers. Still, a good thread if you want suggestions on stuff people will like and share.

Now on to this week's hand-picked productivity links!
