Yesterday, this tweet of Ellie’s iPhone home screen spread a great deal. It received over
1600 2000 retweets and according to Twitter analytics it had over 180 240k impressions. It’s still being retweeted this morning.
This photograph I took at Jackson Hole still gets reblogged on Tumblr. Now at 23k notes.
I typically don’t get anything like close to those numbers on either network.
Somewhere along the way they picked up steam and folks with a large number of followers must have retweeted and reblogged to get it moving.
It would be cool if someone built a visualization product to see how content moves through a social network.
