Twitter Time

Do you know the best time to tweet?  Experiment with your tweets.  Try tweeting at various times over the course of two to three weeks.  Watch your results to determine if you’re reaching the followers you want to reach.

Logic suggests that no matter what your audience, one of the best times to tweet is 9:00 a.m. Pacific Time.  Why?  You will hit peak social media times in three time zones.  People on the west coast are just starting their day.  East coast folks are at lunch while Londoners are at the end of their business day. 

Also consider repeating your tweets.  Most people check their tweets around the same time every day so are unlikely to have an issue with repeats.  Use repeat tweets to drive traffic.  For example, if you have a new blog post, use Hootsuite to schedule your tweets every 8 hours or 3 times in a 24 hour period for maximum traffic.
