A new website reveals that tweets featuring Google, Apple or Facebook are more likely to be retweeted and shared.
According to Popshared.com, tweets that feature Google, Apple or Facebook, are more likely to be shared and retweeted on Twitter. In the last 40 days, headlines that have ‘exploded' (had more than 4,000 retweets), include: Google Buys Motorola For $12.5 Billion; Steve Jobs Resigns as CEO of Apple; and Hacker Group Anonymous Aims to Destroy Facebook.
