Tweriod - Determine The Best Times to Tweet
It's true. Timing is everything - especially when it comes to social media. You can post content to your Twitter account all-the-live-long day. But if you want your content to be read - and passed on - you need to know when your particular group of followers are the most active.
Recently, via this blog post from the Social Media Examiner, I came across a free tool to help you do just that. It's called Tweriod. As it states on their website, "Tweriod gives you the best times to tweet. We analyze both your tweets and followers' tweets, so you can start tweeting when it makes sense for others."
I decided to sign-up and test-drive Tweriod for myself and was pleased with the results.
First, Tweriod is very easy to use. You sign-up using your Twitter login. (This also grants Tweriod access to your Twitter account, which it needs in order to analyze it.) Next, I supplied Tweroid with my email address and requested a report. Within minutes, a link to my report appeared in my inbox.
The report displays three major areas of information: General Stats, Hourly Graphs, and @replies. The General Stats page (shown below) is broken down into the categories of "Most exposure when tweeted between" and "Most followers are online between," which are further broken down by days.
The Hourly Graphs page breaks down your followers' daily activity by days:
And the @replies page gives you an overview of when people mention you:
As you can see, Tweriod delivers the data in a very straightforward and easy-to-read structure. Within a few minutes, you can gain an overall picture of your followers' activity - and then apply that data to how and when you Tweet. If you want a quick and succinct look at your Twitter following, without any hassle, Tweriod is a prime option.
