Working Out The Most Popular Time For Your Tweets

It’s been a while since I last brought you some Twitter Tips, so I thought I would bring you some quite useful for those of you wanting to know when the best time to tweet is and when your followers are on-line to see your tweets.

So How Do You Do This?

One Twitter Tool for doing this very thing is Tweriod, is quick and quite simple to use and the stats are ones which you can use for the purposes of finding out when your best times are for tweeting out those all important tweets on Twitter.

Simply sign in with Twitter, don’t worry you don’t have to enter your password, and then Tweriod will start working out your statistics, as soon as they are don you will get a DM on Twitter from them to let you know that everything is ready for you to view.

Reading Your Statistics

The nice thing about this handy Twitter Tool is the graphs, all your stats. are listed in graph format so that they are easy to read and understand.

You even get a section that tells you when you are most likely to get the most exposure for your tweets.

Now as with most Twitter Tools like this one, you have to consider that all this information is not going to be 100% correct and with this site it only uses the information from the last 5,000 of your followers, so if you do have over the 5,000 mark then there could be some differences.

But I do have to say that after using Tweriod myself and checking stats from my own Tweets and comparing them to the statistics on Tweriod, it’s not that bad.

An Overall Thought

Ok, so you shouldn’t really rely on something like this, but Tweriod is a valuable Twitter Tool that can be quite helpful in those of you that are wishing to get more discussions going on with your Twitter and knowing the time that is more popular than other times is useful.

But, the thing you have to remember is that using Twitter is more so than just knowing the correct time to tweet, it’s also about giving back to those that tweet you and if someone tweets you with a question, try to answer it, if tweeters talk to you then do the same and reply.

    Thanks for the info. Do you know how this applies to other countries? Or is there something that looks at best times for a particular time zone/region?

    • http://blazingminds.co.uk Karen

      The stats are taken from the time zone that you have set on your Twitter account.

    Interesting tool. It’s like with online dating – you are more likely to get response on Sunday morning or evening or any other day. I would also assume that if Twitter account is about business, than it will be more likely to get more attantion during work hours. Personal accounts will be more popular in the evening.

    I wanted to check out those stats badly. Thanks Karen for sharing the tip on Tweroid, will help in scheduling/buffering my posts.

    • http://blazingminds.co.uk Karen

      My pleasure, please let me know how you get on ;)

    This looks like great tools for me. I am blogging from norway, but my readers are intentional. Thanks for the tip:)

      Glad to be of some help ;)

    I heard people say “oh the best time for me to tweet is such and such” and I’ve always wondered how they worked it out. Now I know! Thanks Karen – useful info.

    • http://blazingminds.co.uk Karen

      Hi Dawn, I always like to enlighten when I can ;)

  • Dennis Edell

    Very cool little tool Karen, thanks!

    • http://blazingminds.co.uk Karen

      Thanks Dennis, I thought it was about time I did another Twitter type post ;)

  • http://bodynsoil.com/blog/ bodynsoil

    Thank you for your post, I have bookmarked this twitter site for future use as well. My information with Twenod is still being processed and will be done momentarily; this will be so helpful when it comes to timing my important tweets.

    Thank you for posting this.

    • http://blazingminds.co.uk Karen

      You will get a DM from them when it’s done, do stop back and let me know how you get one ;)

      • Dennis Edell

        You can also get it through email but the link isn’t clickable or copyable…irritating.

        • http://bodynsoil.com/blog/ bodynsoil

          I did get my link via email and found the information helpful and now I can time my tweets a bit better.

  • http://maddencorner.blogspot.com A. Tatum

    Thanks Karen.

    • http://blazingminds.co.uk Karen

      You’re welcome ;)

  • Kris

    I always thought that tweeps would be most online in the evening or in the morning. I guess I was wrong.

    • http://blazingminds.co.uk Karen

      It all depends who your followers are and where they are from, have you tried and found out your most popular times are yet?

    Hey there Karen;

    Wow! Another cool Twitter tool! I tell you there are tons of them out there. I just added this one to my bookmark list. But, I also see there are some other tools that I used to use that I need to remove from my bookmark list. LOL!

    Thanks for the update on fun Twitter tools!

      Sometimes Twitter Tools come and go very quickly ;)

    You make a lot of really good points in this post. Tweriod is definitely a tool I’ll have to check out for myself – seems like it’s something that could come in really handy! I like the point that you make at the end of the post, too – how it’s not just about knowing the right time to tweet, but equally, if not more important, is being able to engage your followers in discussion, interacting with them and answering their questions, if need be, and getting them to re-tweet your tweets.

    • http://blazingminds.co.uk Karen

      I agree with you on the point of engaging your followers, that’s why I think it’s best when using something like Tweriod to look at those times and make sure that they fit in with you availability as well ;)

    Would you consider using an automated tool to send these tweets out these “sweet” times? I sometimes think that at increments you can send out your most trafficked posts during these times.

    • http://blazingminds.co.uk Karen

      Using something like Buffer would be a good idea for these “sweet” times or even the advanced settings on dlvr.it, hmmm may experiment with that ;)

  • shashank

    Hi, nyc article. But the time you mentioned stands for people in other parts of the world (like india) as well. ??

    • http://blazingminds.co.uk Karen

      As I mentioned in reply to an earlier comment all the times are based on the time zone you have set in your Twitter profile and to when your last 5,000 followers react and are online.
