We all know that Op, Ant, Jim etc. all have many followers on twitter. If your tweet gets re-tweeted by them a lot more people will be seeing it. That being said does anyone try to purposely get a RT and yes how do you do it? I happen to be falling on desperate time and have a vanity number that I need sold. How do I get them to RT a message?

How To Get Re-Tweeted.
Don't Tweet continually that you want to be retweeted.
Tweet about things that they are talking about.
Tweet about news or sports events that they already covered but with a different take.
Tweet pictures of the sun setting and rising.
Tweet something that is funny.
Tweet asking an obscure question that they only would know.
Tweet something very complimentary.
Tweet something about Anthony's podcasts or Opie's videos and pics.
Tweet more during the show with suggestions and jokes.

I suppose your tweet would have to be either really, really good or really, really bad.

But hey, what do I know? I'm sticking with Facebook.

Don't tweet them every dumb thing you can think of. Save it for the stuff you think is really good.

If you tell opie that he is brilliant, funny or one of his videos are masterful--he'll retweet you. Not sure why some people say that twitter is for queers, though.

Neon gets some stuff posted from time to time but thats because its funny.

The fact you made this thread leads me to believe your not. Slit your wrist and snap a pic for opie, I'm guessing mutilation or killing yourself is your only option.

Kamikaze it. Criticize the show to Opie. He'll ban you, but he'll retweet you.

I got a nice little piece of property on Block Island that is perfect for him. Such a good view, you could name kids forever.

I agree. But I got your back. I used the report function and contacted one of the mods about this. I'm sure they'll get to the bottom if it.

If you need help your best bet is to ask. Anything else is pretty much useless for this situation. Say you're a fan on hard times and need help selling 1-800-____-_____, you'll probably get ignored as a scummy sales person, and the sliver of the internet that follows Opie probably doesn't need the 1-800 number you have, but making a joke or whatever the usual way to get RT'd is won't work when you need another tweet to request help selling your niche assets.

Things have been really quiet over on the GEnie bbs lately, maybe I'll look in to this Twitter thing.

The best bet (we're talking a good 80% success rate) is to tweet Opie about how much you loved one of his videos (include the link). Not only will he retweet you, he'll most likely throw in a "ME: THANKS I LOVE IT TOO!!!!" for your time.

The only time I actually asked for a RT was when there was a missing kid from my school. Jimmy was nice enough to retweet it and weirdly I got a bunch of followers, so if you get something of substance RTed you could get 6 or even 7 new followers.
