Before you Retweet next time, check how many people you are going to annoy

Should I Retweet?

Should @tejaaa retweet @guykawasaki’s tweet?


This RT will be new to 568 people and annoy 467 people.

45% of @tejaaa ‘s followers also follow @guykawasaki (flip it!)

I like to retweet [RT] if I think it’s really going to add value, is funny/useful or reinforce it’s value. I try to do this sparingly. But next time before you retweet find out how many people might be seeing that post second time or more than that on http://shouldirt.com and then see if the double up is worth it.

So I I decide to RT one of @guykawasaki’s post I am going to double up post for nearly 45% of my followers who also follow @guykawasaki.

A handy tool!
