Because I am not confident in Livejournal's abilty to embed tweets, I am embedding screenshots as well; apologies for double emploi.
10) This (from just the other day), a response to the writer Robert Harris had the highest engagement rate at just over 27%. I guess "engagement rate" is engagements (those who click on it) divided by impressions (those who see it in their stream). Replying to someone with a lot of followers (Harris has 71,000) will probably increase the rate of engagement.

When was the Telegraph sane? pic.twitter.com/JvGwMhrVaA
9) This got the most permalink clicks (clicks onto the tweet itself from desktop views), which is gratifying as it is me quoting myself. Clicks through to the June tweet won't appear in the stats for July-September tweets, but it too picked up a fair bit.

Sensible commentary. Bigger picture is global decline of FCO’s status and inner confidence.https://t.co/0DXvx67dJT
6) This got the most replies (10), all of which supported my view.

As usual, a thought-provoking thread from @PMDFoster, which suffers from the fundamental flaw that he really wants to believe that Boris knows what he is doing. I have seen little evidence that this is the case. https://t.co/8DJD56Fj7i
5) This got the most URL clicks, an interesting case of content completely unrelated to either sf or Brexit, but the fact that the lede featured the phrase "a sex dungeon, and Dick Cheney" possible encouraged people to look at the article. It is a great piece.

I have found it genuinely chilling to realise how little the bash-patriotic no-deal Brexiteers care about Northern Ireland. https://t.co/jx1gZVtJg2
4) This got the most hashtag clicks (I don't do hashtags as much as I maybe should), and scored well enough on other metrics:

Sir Ivan Rogers, asked by @AndrewRosindell to confirm that Leo Varadkar created the backstop issue, fails to do so. "The hardening of the Irish approach [happened] when Enda Kenny was Taoiseach, end Jan 2017... I don't buy this analysis that suddenly the position hardened up." pic.twitter.com/6kfSvgtHg2
I'm reasonably satisfied with this methodology for counting the impact of my Tweets, and will repeat at the end of the year.
