Re: Please Don’t Retweet -
"I'm probably going to be in the minority here, but why should a cause-related effort have to be held to a different standard? Asking for a RT is the microblogging equivalent of putting out a press release. Because all we're doing is asking others to help us carry our message. I think the issue you've identified is that the ask for RTs is often indiscriminate. An alternative approach would be to target the exact group of people you want help from and develop a specific pitch for them (if a pitch can be reduced to a tweet), or a specific ask regarding a RT.  But to ban the ask for a RT across the board - even excepting causes - seems a little draconian to me. Just my $0.02." - Scott Monty
