Top Ten Most Retweeted Tweets Of 2010

On Twitter, the retweet is the ultimate “hey, look at this!” Retweets are an acknowledgment, in most cases an appreciation (but not always), of the original tweeters’ comment.

So here they are. Some witty and clever and edgy. Others banal and self-serving. Let’s countdown the top ten most retweeted tweets of 2010!
