Guilt Trip

@OfficialCANCER: Unfortunately, 97% of twitter users will not RT this for support cancer. But the 3% who do are the ones willing to #makeachange
One of my friends retweeted this today.  I have a few thoughts:

1) 97% (if not more) of twitter users will not retweet most tweets, so your tweet isn't special.

2) How exactly does retweeting that help make a change?  Is someone donating money for each retweet?  If so, you should say that.  If not, what's the point?  It's not like people don't already know about cancer so you're not "raising awareness."  You're just laying down a guilt trip to try to get retweets and boost your profile.

3) What the hell does "for support cancer" mean?  Is that cancer of the athletic supporter?
