I’ve been on Twitter for about three years. In that time, I think my most popular tweet had likes in the double digits, barely, and retweets in the single digits. This is fairly normal for most Twitter users. If you have a ton of personal friends on Twitter then maybe your average likes are in the triple digits and your retweets are in the double digits, but most of us don’t have friends who are dedicated enough to like and retweet all our tweets. (Which makes it easier, honestly. Means we don’t have to do it either.)

You know what I mean – you hope they find your tweet, like it, screenshot it, and feature it in a listicle of “18 Boss Responses to Exes” or “24 Tear-Jerkingly Beautiful Love Letters to Cookies.” Most of those featured tweets don’t have that many reactions, which makes you think that there’s a real live actual chance that it could happen to you. It seems to happen to the average person, and you’re an average person. Never was it so great to be an average person.
