Unlike Instagram and Facebook where posts can take up to 24hours to rank, Twitter posts are usually shown in a chronological order. That means, they have a shorter lifespan and you need to post multiple times a day to get more attention. So finding the right time to post on Twitter can help you scale your reach and get more engagement.
In this post, we've compiled data from several studies to help you plan and schedule your Tweets at peak times for engagement!
