Why I RT/retweet a lot

Shares

901559933_HAA45-S When on Twitter, I retweet (RT) the posts of other people a great deal.

Two reasons:

— easier than having an original thought.

— it's nice to share, that is, it feels right to distribute others' stuff to a broader audience.

Craig,
Another good reason, besides the ones you've mentioned, is that it shows people that you don't think it's all about you.
I think this fits well with what most people already assume about your community-building bent, but it never hurts to reinforce that.
However, I, for one, do enjoy your original thoughts. :) I find that reading things from smart people helps me figure out what I want to think/blog/talk about/work on. To me, someone who RTs a lot is someone who is engaged with the world around then.
