Tools For Effective Tweeting: Tweriod
A few weeks ago I posted the first in a series of write-ups reviewing tools for smarter tweeting. If you’re managing the Twitter account for your business - and also trying to, you know, run the business - finding an effective way to plan and share content is crucial. Save time, tweet smarter, and share great content with your followers using these programs!
Last time, I reviewed Buffer, an app that allows you to schedule as many Twitter and Facebook posts as you can write ahead of time. It’s great - you can prepare all the tweets and posts you need, and not only does Buffer post them, but it will give you metrics to show you how many RTs and clicks you got for each one.
But let’s talk about those clicks… obviously the goal is to share content that gets as many clicks as possible, so naturally, your odds are increased when you have more followers online. But how do you know when that is? That’s where Tweriod comes in.
Tweriod analyzes your Twitter followers and provides you with a chart showing how many of your followers are active at different times throughout the day. It provides these statistics for each specific day, as well as weekends combined, and weekdays combined, giving you insight on the optimal times to share your content.
Tweriod is free (with slightly limited features) for analyzing up to 5,000 followers. If you’re just getting started, the free version should suit you perfectly.
Tweriod markets itself to work alongside Buffer, which I have been making use of, but the information the program offers can act as a guideline that you can use with any other sharing app.
