Best Time of Day to Tweet

Marketers have been speculating about which day of the week is the best day to tweet. As Twitteropia continues to swell, getting a tweet across is becoming increasingly difficult in this rapidly evolving environment.  That’s why I created this chart. It shows with pinpoint accuracy which day of the week is best for Twiterring, as well as time of day.  NOTE: times are Eastern Standard Time. Results in different time zones will not vary.

      I don’t understand this chart. The way it appears to me, it has blue check marks on every hour round the clock, 24/7 for all 7 days of the week. It has nothing that shows the best time to tweet.

      Roger, yes this is ME being totally sarcastic.

      I was trying to convey with a smirk grin that the best time to Twitter is basically anytime because of desktop apps and the mobile nature of Twitter.

      I can’t believe the first two commentators were actually trying to understand the chart.

      I think the most important point is…if you are worrying about the best time to tweet….you are probably not using Twitter right

      I found it funny, anyway. And you’re right! Any time is tweetin’ time…

      Joe, great chart, really got me smiling. I’m a marketer, googled ‘best time to tweet’ and saw this; sarcasm and humour alive and well and living on your blog. I tweeted the link to this ‘cos us marketers need to laugh at ourselves and you hit the sweet spot with this. Great stuff!

      Thanks Mark, I was totally aiming for the sarcastic approach when I wrote this over 1 year ago. Really surprised at how much dialogue this is getting. Didn’t expect it.

      All the best. BTW, you can follow me on Twitter at @joeszabo

      Any time, of course ;)

      I don’t agree. People follow so many twitterers that the ones done when people aren’t at their desks will scroll past and they’ll never been seen. Who scrolls back and checks the hundreds they missed overnight? It’s a case of ‘blink and you’ll miss it’.

      Funny post :)
      The “what I’m doing” kinds of tweets are best and most appropriate in real time, when they’re happening. For maximum exposure of a message, especially if you’re a business trying to have as many possible customers see your tweet, is suggested by some Twitter marketing studies to be at the beginning of the workday, at lunch, and again near the end of the workday…with Wednesday, Thursday and Friday being the highest Twitter traffic days. Important to remember that not all followers are in the same timezone.

      I comment whenever I appreciate a article on a site or I have something to contribute to the discussion.

      Usually it is caused by the fire displayed in the post
      I browsed. And after this post Best Time of Day to Tweet | Digital
      Digs (BETA). I was actually excited enough to leave a thought ;) I do have some questions
      for you if you usually do not mind. Could it be only me or does it give the impression like some of the remarks
      appear like they are written by brain dead visitors?
      :-P And, if you are posting at additional
      social sites, I would like to keep up with everything
      new you have to post. Could you list every one of all your
      shared sites like your twitter feed, Facebook page or linkedin profile?
