While this list can be used as a guideline to increase the chances others retweet your content, Zarrella wanted to take it one step further to help people find the most retweetable words about a specific topic.
This tool generates the 20 most retweetable words about any given subject. Visit his site and enter a topic—”networking,” for example. (Note that multiple-word searches rarely work right now.) Click “Analyze,” and in a few seconds, the tool will generate a list of the top 20 most retweetable words associated with the term. The tool will also show the number of tweets and retweets analyzed to generate the list.
To produce the list, the tool compares words found in retweets and how often they appeared in regular (non-retweet) tweets. To keep the results up to date—and to reflect current trends on Twitter—each word is recalculated after 24 hours. The tool analyzes up to 1,500 tweets and 1,500 retweets per word.
Give this tool a try; but remember that since it’s in beta, expect some bugs for now, Zarrella says.
