If you can master 20 simple words and phrases you could soon find yourself mastering the Twitter universe.

Okay so maybe you won’t master Twitter but you will at least receive some positive increases in the number of your posts that are retweeted.

HubSpot’s Dan Zarrella examined what type of Tweets receive retweets and he found 20 words that appear to make a big difference. Zarrella examined the top 10,000 (out of 158,000+ total) most retweeted tweets in his “ReTweet Mapping” database (available here)
