  • “This is the beginning of a beautiful friendship.” T it up by telling the story of how the relationship evolves. This degree of cooperation, trust and bending the rules can only come after they have been through the rest of the story together. It works because trust has been built.Now it’s your turn to start building that kind of trust with reporters…
  • Don’t do this capriciously and insincerely, but if you like something you see and you’re going to RT it, you might as well pass along a compliment while you do so.Just saw a great tweet? Love what you just read and want to share it with others by repeating (retweeting, aka RT) the tweet? Cool! You're getting the hang of Twitter. Now do me a favor, and DON'T TOUCH THAT RT ICON!I know, I know. That link in the bottom of every tweet is darned convenient. It's fast. It's simple. But you're really missing out if you use it exclusively.The most obvious disadvantage? You can't add anything to the tweet -- your opinion, why you felt it retweet-worthy, what you'd like to point out or add -- at all. Being able to add to the initial tweet is a really important aspect of retweets that Twitter missed when they built the RT function.It also misses the important relationship-building role that RTs play. With automatic RTs, the person you're retweeting won't know it unless they habitually check their "Your Tweets, retweeted" tab. (Yes, you have one.) They'll likely never know you shared their post. Old school "manual" RTs on the other hand, are a nice little compliment (and who couldn't use a nice compliment?).
  • Not only are you thanking them, you’re making sure they know you will promote their work.
