How does it work?

Nick picks a Twitter user who is asking their followers for feedback on their landing page and roasts them by quote-tweeting it with his design changes.

Here's why it works:

1. These tweets have longevity as people are interested in looking at past landing page roasts that are maybe in a similar industry or find something for inspiration as they all make for very different pieces of content.

2. Roasting everyone that comments on his post.. this gives tons of free value for all users, so the engagement spike is massive.
