When do you tweet?
An article on HowStuffWorks.com called Top 10 Ways to Get More Followers on Twitter asks, “How can you expect anyone to follow you if they’re asleep?” I decided to create the poll below, after reading tip 9: Tweet During Peak Hours (quoted below).
Take a second to answer and share the poll! If you want to find out when and how much you really do tweet, you can find out at TweetStats.com! They’ll show you your tweets per hour, your tweet timeline, and @reply stats. You may want to check that first, you may be surprised with your results!
You can select more than one time, of course. I didn’t make an “all day” option. Here is the tip from HowStuffWorks.com about Tweets During Peak Hours:
Sending messages, or twittering, during peak hours gives you the best opportunity to be seen, or, rather, read. And that gives you better odds of someone enjoying whatever messages you’re sending out and signing up as a follower. So what are the peak hours? There haven’t been any studies performed yet, but the Washington, D.C.-based Internet marketing firm Abraham & Harrison have performed some Webinars along with Twitter and confirmed that 9 a.m., noon, 3 p.m. and 6 p.m. see heavy use. It’s also an opportunity for you to experiment with your tweets and see when you’re getting the best response. If you do find that between 9 a.m. and 6 p.m. in the United States, either East or West Coast time, gets you a lot of traffic and you live elsewhere in the world, structure you tweets around this schedule. It may not be the most convenient time for you, but if you’re interested in gaining followers, you need to be around when the bulk of Twitter users are around.
The results will be embedded here as well. Thanks for your participation! – @francavilla
