When is the best time to tweet? [infographic]
Sometimes you can send out what you think is the most awesome of tweets and then you wait and…nothing. Not a sausage of a retweet in sight. It is as if the world has looked away. Your followers are not interested or are busy elsewhere.
But as this infographic from Lemon.ly shows sometimes are better to tweet than others. For instance the majority of Twitter traffic takes place between nine in the morning and 11 am and then between 1300 and 1500 in the afternoon. That means more people are reading tweets then and are more engaged and correspondingly you have more chance of catching people’s attention.
Most tweets by day are also sent on Tuesday. As if on Monday we were only just warming up for the week ahead. The fewest are sent on Sunday (no surprise there), but oddly Thursday is the quietest day of the working week. I’ve long noticed this and always wondered why things get so quiet on Thursdays before picking up a little on Fridays.
