What is the best time to Tweet to get the widest Readership? Why is timing of Tweets important on Twitter? When it comes to Twitter, timing is highly relevant. Both the Twitter homepage and Tweetdeck are scrolling screens and those Tweets ending up at the bottom of a recipients message page are less likely to be read than those at the top. Reasoning, thus, suggests that for the widest possible readership it would be best to Tweet when the maximum number of Tweeters are logging in to Tweet themselves. But when is that?


Tweet O’ Clock which was designed to compute the best time to Tweet an individual friend i.e. the time that they most frequently Tweet themselves. It struck me that it would be fun and perhaps useful to conduct a snapshot experiment to determine the most poular Tweet times for the general Twitter population.

The Most Poular Time of day to Tweet

The most popular time of the day to Tweet was lunch time between 12 and 1 O’Clock ( 30% of total Tweets) 5 out of 6 Tweeters who Tweeted between 12 and 1 O’ Clock were men Other popular times to Tweet were between 3 and 5PM (20% total Tweets) and 9and 11PM (25% total Tweets) · 10% of total Tweets were between 9 and 11 am · Only women Tweeted in the early hours 12AM -5AM (15% total Tweets) Most Popular day of week/time combinations.

There were three most popular day of week/time combinations to Tweet each which accounted for 10% of total Tweets these were: Wednesday 12PM Tuesday 1PM Tuesday 9PM. Can it be concluded that these would be the best times to Tweet for maximum readership in all cases? It is unlikely. Is it possible that those chosen based on other search terms might show different trends? Absolutely. Is it possible, too, that those from different countries might show different Tweeting patterns and trends based on a variant lifestyle?

Tweet timing is a factor which you should consider might impact heavily on your own effectiveness on Twitter, I strongly suggest that you conduct an experiment on a sample of your own Twitter follower…

To start, you can either choose between tweets or profile.

If you’re looking for experts or hobbyists in your niche, then you might want to click ‘profile’. If you’re looking for people who just might have an interest in your niche, then click ‘tweets’.

Then enter your Twitter id, enter your niche’s search terms or keywords, then click ‘SEEK’.

Twitseeker goes to work and finds all of the latest tweets or profiles that include your niche’s search terms in it.

If the niche, for example is cats, then Twitseeker goes to work and returns all of those who either tweeted or put that word in their profile.

As if you didn’t already know, Tweet Town is dedicated to helping all tweeples in finding good apps to help in there day to day lives.

To make your twitter experience all it can be and to use it for the great tool it is, I thought I would include 10 of the must have twitter Home Based Business tools you should be using in your home based business.

home based business

  1. twhirl has become my twitter client of choice. It is cross platform so you can use it on either a windoze box or on the Mac OS. It has some great features and I would encourage you to go to the link to see what all it can do.
  2. twitterfeed is another one of those little extras you can use. Use twitterfeed to send most recent blog post to your twitter account. By using twitterfeed, whenever you do a new post, it will show up in my twitter conversation and you don’t have to do anything. There are plugins you can use with WordPress to accomplish this too.
  3. twitpic lest you share photos on twitter. You can post pictures to twitpic from your phone and most of the twitter clients have built-in support for it too.
  4. Tweet Scan gives you the ability to follow conversations that might mention keywords you want to watch. Use it to follow your own name and other keywords you want to keep track of. It is one of those tools that should be used by companies to follow what is being said on twitter about them.
  5. tweetAhead (under construction)can be used to set tweets to post in the future. You can use this if you are doing a special promotion of a new idea, product or just want to make your appearance. (Under Construction)
  6. My Tweeple can be used to make informed decisions when it comes to following people on twitter. You can use it to see who is following you and who you are following. And with a simple click, you can follow, unfollow, or block people all in one place.
  7. Quotably is another way to follow the twitter conversations. What I do like about this service is that it puts the conversations in what appears to be threads.
  8. tweetlater is one of those twitter tools that actually has a couple of great uses. Use it to send a direct message to all my new followers. Whenever anyone follows me, it is set to send them a message welcoming them. You can also use it to send out tweets in the future too.
  9. twitthis is an easy way for you to send twitter messages about your blog post or Web site. You can also use it to post what you are reading to twitter and what you might be listening to or watching on the web. twitthis is a great way to give something back to twitter.
  10. is.gd is a service that shortens URLS, which I actually better than tinyURL. Use it with twitter when I just want to add a URL your my tweet. This is also built into twhirl, however I have found is.gd works better in my opinion.

There are tons more twitter tools out there and I know I only scratched the surface. If you are using a twitter tool not on this list that you feel is a must have, leave a comment here so we can all share.
