Random Acts of Kindness
Think about it. When a stranger lets you in front of them in line in the grocery store, doesn’t it make you feel good? When you do something nice for someone you don’t know doesn’t it make you feel good? Twitter is the perfect platform to perform random acts of kindness for so many people on such a large scale; and the best thing about it is it’s absolutely FREE!
Get More Retweets
I’ve had luck with the following types of random acts of kindness getting retweeted the most.
- Charities such as Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure, or Animal Charities I like this one because there are various links and all you need to do is click to donate.
- News about great prices on products i.e. ABC restaurant is having a 99cent sale on their XYZ hamburger regularly priced at $4.89 (although local restaurant info is appreciated – remember Twitter is worldwide – if your followers are worldwide – remember to put the location of the store/restaurant/etc… in your post)
- Breaking news: whether this is current events like the Japanese tsunami, the riots in London or the earthquake in Virginia, USA, if you can provide helpful information to family or friends relating to any type of catastrophic event, you will get retweeted. More importantly, you will be performing random acts of kindness.
