Here are book marketing tips tweeted by John Kremer, the author of 1001 Ways to Market Your Books, during a twitterview with @LobsterandChick (Herb Palmer Jr. of http://www.lobsterandchicken.com) on April 29, 2009.
“The reason that retweeting is so flattering is that every time people do it, they are putting their reputation on the line. If their followers don’t like the retweet, their reputation is reduced. So whenever someone retweets your tweet, they are expressing confidence that what you’ve tweeted is interesting and good. Thus, the best measure of someone’s quality as a Twitter user is not the number of followers but the amount of retweets.”
