Top 10 Twitter Tips for Engagement - Tip #9 Pick up on breaking news: Don’t just retweet - add your perspective
If you tweet about a subject that is being talked about on Twitter it is more likely to get noticed. Add your voice to the debate and use a relevant hashtag that people are using for the news item to get it noticed. What perspective can you add? Does it link to another area of interest or debate? Contribute your thoughts and ideas so that people will see you have an opinion. Users on Twitter want commentary as well as news.
If you want to retweet use a manual re-tweet and add your comment. If you just retweet the tweet no one will know what you think about it and you may just be seen as an amplifier of content people may already be likely to know about.
