More proof about the value of having your work retweeted by influential folks. 

I sent out a tweet at 1:06 pm. At 1:17 pm, @MahSabbagh, a current @columbiajourn student and very active Saudi Twitter and blogger, retweeted my post. At 1:19, I picked up a new follower in Saudi Arabia.

I only noticed the connection because the notice of @MahSabbagh’s RT and @AiiizAlSofyani’s follow came back-to-back into my email.
