If I see 'Contributed tweets are provided by @SomeCrapApp' on your timeline, I don't retweet you. Why? Because it means you can't be bothered to actually look on Twitter and see what a person would like retweeting, or what might be of interest to your followers. Half the time you just retweet my conversation; I retweet people, not robots. Alas, you will never read this because you are rarely actually ON Twitter, so you don't read people's blog posts, either.
(ps, I know there are a few very busy people who use @SomeCrapApp but also do Twitter in real life. I do not include you in this!!!)
If you want your tweet to be retweeted by some of these group RT things like Monday Blogs, authorRT and wwwblogs, please do retweet others on the timeline, don't just stick the hashtag on your tweet. It's the retweets that make these hashtags a good thing. The point of such things is that you share others' posts with YOUR followers, too - that's how it works!
I won't write anything else - I'll just recommend that you buy TWITTER FOR WRITERS by Rayne Hall ~ no Twitter using writer should be without it! Click title for UK link. US link HERE
ps, I am not on commission, and have no vested interest in the book - it's just really, really good!
