Most people find it difficult to get retweets every day. It's not hard to get retweeted or increase your retweets if you follow these seven easy tips.

Pinning a tweet allows you to place your best content at the top of your profile page for as long as you’d like. So, every time someone visits your profile page they will see your best tweet, and hopefully retweet or like it.
2. Use Hashtags
Using Hashtags is a good way to increase your exposer on Twitter. Just in case you don’t know, Hashtags are keywords you add to your tweet with a # sign before them. Hashtags automatically become a clickable link when you tweet it, so when other twitter users click them they can view more tweets about the keyword topic, and hopefully see your tweet.
Don’t use too many hashtags in a tweet, two or three hashtags is find. I like to add my hashtags at the end of the tweet, makes it easier to read. I recommend researching hashtags, enter them into the twitter search to see how many are listed, also check out other users to see what hashtags they are using.

I always add hashtags to the end of the quote, such as #Quote #SuccessQuotes #Motivation. Check out other twitter quotes to see what hashtags they are using.
6. Tweet Your Best Content Multiple Times.
Tweets have a very short lifespan in the twitter feed. Most of your followers won’t see your tweet the first time. Twitter no longer allows posting the exact tweet more than once so, you will need to change your tweet wording. I also recommend using different hashtags. I like to space my follow up tweets the next day at a different time. Also, if your received retweets from older tweets, tweet them again.
Also, retweet your most popular tweets again, these tweets received retweets before, and they will probably get retweeted again.
