Viral Tweet Test

To contact me about speaking at your event click here.

I’m trying to conduct a little study into how messages travel in the Twitter-verse. Care to help? There are 2 steps you can take to help build data:

1) Retweet the link to this page, and ask your followers to retweet it too (please use this tinyurl:

2) Comment here on this page, with your Twitter username and the username of the person who’s Tweet caused you to come here.

If this works out, I should be able to have a bit of data to report on in a few days.

Update: The test was a much bigger success than I had imagined. I’m beginning to publish what I learned from it:

Results Part 1: Trending Topics and Forking URLs
Results Part 2: The Growth Timeline and Transmission Rates
