What Makes a Great Tweet

Last week, at the Asian-American Journalists Association's annual convention, a panelist said something that stuck in my head: "I tweet to be retweeted". That's not always the goal for me, but I certainly don't want to be sending out Tweets that take up space.

To that end, here's a nice post by Mashable's Soren Gordhamer on what makes a quality tweet: basically, he thinks they can be categorized as being informative, humorous, personal or inspirational.

DearRobot2 My favorites are the tweets that are combos - especially the ones that make me laugh out loud - I'll call those tweets the humorous/personal hybrids.

I save some of them, especially ones like these from @DearRobot (that's a Twitter account that pulls Tweets that start with "Dear" and retweets them, to often hilarious results.)
