The most retweeted tweets of 2010- IN SONG!

John Moe Dec 29, 2010

We asked our pals Kevyn and Jeremy at We Sing Your Tweets to set a couple of the most retweeted tweets from Twitter to music. Because that’s what they do. They call their songs “sweets” because song + tweet = sweet. They surprised us by coming through with all ten. Enjoy and happy new year!

Don’t focus on the one guy who hates you. You don’t go to the park and set your picnic down next to the only pile of dog shit.

We always ignore the ones who adore us, and adore the ones who ignore us.
