Like many of us, Sandy(@sandyappleyard) likes to personally acknowledge those that share her content on Twitter. For most of us, that means clicking on “reply” and tweeting out a “thank you”. That’s how Sandy used to do it too – but not anymore.
DO NOT THANK FOR RETWEETS!
In fact, in her post, Sandy goes so far as to suggest that you should stop thanking your connections for re-tweets. Instead you should “reciprocate” – re-tweet one of their posts or tweets.
As a result of using this strategy, her Twitter “interactions” have become a “massive re-tweeting frenzy“.
Hmmm . . .
The beauty of reciprocation is that instead of taking the time each night to write “thank you” tweets, I can instead spend that time helping those that have helped me, while providing more valuable content for my twitter stream. Win – win?
What are your thoughts on twitter reciprocation instead of a “thank you”? Would you still recognize it as an act of appreciation?
Very curious to hear your thoughts.
