Positive, happy tweets are a key to success: Study

Scientists have revealed the key to changing into common on micro-running a blog website Twitter.

C J Hutto and colleagues on the Georgia Institute of Expertise in Atlanta examined the content material and retweeting destiny of tweets despatched by 500 non-celebrities over a 15-month duration. They regarded for 2800 phrases that convey Sure and terrible feelings, including slang and swear phrases, a suite of emoticons and customary acronyms, like LOL.

The keys to success, they found, were to tweet Certain messages, write clearly and retweet fascinating titbits of news. People Who tweeted mostly about themselves did not fare so neatly.

The Study suggests it’s the content material of the tweets that has the largest influence on the dimensions of Twitter audience.

Hutto mentioned how engaged individuals are with their followers also matters. Readability used to be additionally key, he introduced.

The researchers will present their findings on the Convention on Human Elements in Computing Systems in Paris, France, in April.

  1. I am going to college soon and I’m an illegal immigrant. Does Georgia Tech accept illegal immigrants? And does it matter I don’t have a social security number? Trust me, it’s not my fault that the gov’t says I’m illegal. So don’t leave any stupid comments.

  2. I’m from the Georgia Institute of Technology and will be goin back this summer to Chennai to visit family/friends.Din’t want to waste 3 months.Please help me.I really want to work.Thanks.

  3. Compare to places like Purdue, embry riddle, georgia tech

  10. I am moving to Georgia (tuition is FREE with a B average at state universities), and I need to search for only state colleges/universities within this state, so that I can take this list and do research that will ultimately help me in selecting a school. Also, I thought all state colleges were supposed to have STATE on their name. Is this accurate? Thanks for all your help!
    I have searched with Google for hours. How do I know for sure that these are State universities? Is there a specific site that can add this detail to the search?

  11. I have a lot of custom content and I know my game works without it but with it it just crashes. I really need the custom content for movie making and I’ve tried deleting programs off of my computer and doing a disk clean up but nothing has worked to make the sims work. Is there anything else I can do?

    So the other day I was a at a friends house and we were playing my madden 13 on his PS3, when we unplugged it to take it to the living room to play, and when we tried to turn it back on, it wouldn’t work, it’s basically done for. My problem was that my game was still in the system and it wouldn’t eject. So I went out to their shed and got some screwdrivers and took the whole thing apart screw by screw and piece by piece. With the help of YouTube of course, I figured out how to manually eject my disc out of the DVD player. Then, I put the whole thing back together and everything was fine. Except for the fact that it was already broken. But anyways, for some reason I had fun unscrewing everything and taking stuff apart and putting it back together. It was the first time I had ever done something like that. I really enjoyed it. I’m a freshman in highschool and next year I’m planning on taking business classes. But, now I kind of want to change my mind and take a class for engineering. If that is what you’re suppose to take. But anyway, if I enjoy taking those classes then I want to go to a big engineering school. I know Georgia Tech is one of the best, but does anyone know what classes I should take and what schools I should consider looking at?

  14. University of California, Berkeley
    University of Texas
    University of Michigan
    Georgia Institute of Technology

    I am applying for the NROTC scholarship and i want to choose the best (besides MIT)

  15. Does anyone know how I could get the email or contact details of the head of admissions at georgia institute of technology? I need to get into contact with him/her and I dont think that ill really get a reply by sending anything in on their contact form on the gtech website.


    also any past students’ advice would be welcome:)

  16. GPA: 3.67
    SAT: 1310(working on getting 1400)
    ACT: (didnt take it) but seeing a simliar friend around 32

    Countless number of extra credit hours…

  17. I am currently studying BA Politics at the University of Sheffield. Next academic year I get to study a year abroad in the US! It’s been my dream since a kid to live in the States due to the exposure to the American media. I was a big fan of the Simpsons when I was a kid so that has kind of shaped my idea of “America”, bear this in mind… The universities I can study at are:

    Case Western Reserve University
    Drexel University, Philadelphia
    George Institute of Technology
    Montana State University-Bozeman
    Oregon University System – All 7 campuses
    University at Buffalo (SUNY)
    University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign
    University of Maryland at College Park
    University of Michigan – College of Engineering (Engineering only)
    University of New Mexico at Albuquerque
    University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill
    University of Oklahoma-Norman
    University of Pittsburgh
    University of Texas at Austin
    University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee
    University of Wisconsin Madison (Engineering only)
    Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University

    I want something that:
    – has that Simpsons feel…
    – is traditional America
    – isn’t too hot or too cold
    – preferably snow
    – near a major sports team

    I’d like a university that meets the majority of this criteria.

    I am making a list of the schools I am applying to and I have several already but I need some input on what colleges i consider and what i should eliminate as well as ordering in this list. (not currently ordered)
    Carnegie Mellon, MIT, UMI-Ann Arbor, Stanford, Princeton, Calpoly (Pasadena and San Luis Obispo), UC Berkeley, Bucknell, Georgia Tech, Purdue.
    Are you talking about Boston College?

    i am planning to take up a Master in Computer Science particularly there in the US. Can you give me the ranking of famous universities when it comes to science and technology.

  20. My choices are:
    University of Maryland
    Carnegie Mellon University
    University of Texas-Austin
    Georgia Institute of Technology
    UC-San Diego
    Case Western
    Boston University
    University of Michigan
    Rice University

    Could you also rank the top five computer science schools out of this list?

  21. I have several blogs and it’s just getting way too overwhelming for me to keep up with the demand of generating unique content continuously. I’m way in over my head with this. I don’t know how people keep pumping out unique/original content without having their fingers fall off. Perhaps outsourcing everything but I’m sure that can get pretty expensive!

    Im from Georgia, USA and as you may know Warner Robins recently won the Little League World Series….

    I know our governor Sonny Purdue played little league in warner robbins, but didn’t make it in baseball.

    I was wondering about these kids futures and if anyone on a championship little league, including other countries, ever made it to the big leagues and who was most successful as professional baseball player?
