It's my 53rd birthday on Monday and here's my birthday party plans. I combining raising money to send Cambodian youngsters to school, an action learning experiment on the art of retweet, guest teaching at Stanford Business School class on social technology, and eating chocolate. What could be more fun?
I've set a modest goal this year because small actions add up. Thank you for donating! I'm very honored that @hardlynormal, a homeless activist, has donated. As well as friends and colleagues:
Anne Mai Bertelsen
Anne Quinn Ulseth
Amy Sample Ward
Sandra Sutton Andrews
Catrina Joy Roallos
Samathida and Monothiya Kem
Shanon Des Roches

If you want to help send a Cambodian youngster to school in honor of my birthday ... $10 or more will do it. And you can participate in my action learning experiment and spread happy birthday on Twitter with this tweet:

Insight: Art of Retweet
* The number of followers a user has
* The number of unique references and citations of the user in Twitter
* The frequency at which the user is uniquely retweeted
* The frequency at which the user is uniquely retweeting other people
* The relative frequency at which the user posts updates
Based on the analysis, he suggested that I focus on asking the people on the top of list to retweet the message. In looking at the list, it also makes sense to focus on those who have high engagement with their followers.
What have you learned about the art of retweet?
