My Tweet that Blew Up on Twitter (for Reasons Unknown)

Just when you think you understand Twitter…

I recently made a post that mysteriously set what I figure is a personal record for retweets and favorites (since, in this 21st century world, such things are important):  “I don’t want to be a millionaire; I just want to be on @Jeopardy.

This is especially surprising because I know I’ve sent out many more tweets that have 10 times as much substance but don’t garner any reaction.

Your guess is as good as mine as to why nonsensical scribble grabbed a bit of social-media limelight, but if you do have one, please let me know. I’m certainly no Twitter pro, so any advice is gladly accepted.

In the meantime, I’ll keep on Tweeting, hoping that both my wisdom and my babble send me closer to whatever magical thing happens when you win Twitter.
