Yes, it feels good to talk about Twitter after spending a full week discussing Facebook’s major announcement. And why not, a little bit of Google+ too.
By the way, I was just reading today’s post from Jeff Bullas and I’m happy to see that even when Facebook hijacked the Internet, Google+ was able to grow nearly 9 million in 2 days. That’s pretty impressive.
But like I said, let’s please talk about Twitter for a change.
This infographic from Lemon.ly talks about Twitter timing and I thought I’d share it with you because it seems to be a regular concern. One of the questions I often get from clients and readers is “What is the best time to Tweet?” and while I think there is no one-size-fits-all kind of answer for this, at least this data lets you visualize a trend.
For example in my case, I agree with the AM timeframe but in the PM, I find that I get the most activity and best results between 3 and 5pm. I also agree with the usage percentage by day of the week although one of my favorite days to spend on Twitter are Fridays and according to this analysis it doesn’t get the action Tuesdays get. Like I said, that’s just me, the point is that you might have your own preferences.
The important thing is that you allow yourself to test the waters.
That’s not all on the infographic, there are other interesting numbers like how many Tweets happen per second or what was the hottest event. Let’s take a look at it and share your thoughts in the comments section.
