Poll: When do you Tweet and the Retweet Experiment

As I’ve already posted, Twitter can be a very powerful tool for building a brand and marketing a product or service.  But tweets are a constant stream of information.  Chances are, if you are following a number of people and they are tweeting all day, you’re likely not going to see or read all of their tweets unless you’ve got them streaming to your desktop all day long.

This means that your tweets are likely not seen by all of your followers for the same reason.  So, there most be a prime time for tweets – when folks are most likely to be on twitter tweeting and reading tweets.

To find the tweet prime time, please take a moment to fill out this simple poll below to indicate your tweet times.

The Retweet

Also, as I mentioned in my earlier post, the retweet is one of the most under rated yet most powerful features of twitter.  In theory, a tweet can go viral and reach thousands of people.  To test this, please tweet and retweet this post (use something like bigtweet to make it easy).   This serves two purposes – it tests the possibility of a viral tweet, and if provides more folks to vote in the tweeting poll which means the data is more meaningful.  Thanks and check back often to see the results!

  1. Thanks for the poll, Todd.

    I get up very early. And Twittering on the “Right” Coast in the first hours of daybreak is not a great time. Especially when everyone on the “Left” Coast is still sleeping or has just gone to bed :]

    What time do you Tweet?

  2. Never mind the ‘left’ and ‘right’ of the United States — think about Tweeting in Australia. Most of the world is tucked up in their beds when I Tweet! I just have to scroll down and see what everyone had to say yesterday 🙂

    Happy Tweeting!

    Hi there. I did a similar poll recently if you’re interested: http://www.malcolmcoles.co.uk/blog/best-time-tweet/

  4. If I have a day off of work, I’ll post 3 or 4 times throughout the day, in the a.m., afternoon or evening.
