What is the Best Time to Post on Twitter?


Best Time to Post on Twitter

When do you tweet?

By: CoreyGmaN

twitter

I have a quick post for today, and I have a lot of people have  been asking me when the best time to tweet.   Timing is very important on getting your content in front of the right people  and it involves getting it out at the right time on fast-paced social networks.

Lets discuss when’s the best time to post to Twitter, and in the next blog I will discuss Facebook, LinkedIn, Google+ and Pinterest.

A large part of timing your social content will rely on your audience. When they’re online and engaged is usually a good time to post your most exciting stuff!  Now if you are advertising sleeping medicine, your time might differ a bit from the norm.  But for now we will work off the norm.

But there are some general rules of thumb that you can follow to help guide your timing, especially when you’re just getting started on social media.

Posting to Twitter, for instance, between 1 PM and 3 PM is best for engagement.  Traffic on Twitter seems to build starting at 11 AM, while it starts to fade at 3 PM. And posting after 3 PM on Fridays is the absolute worst time you can tweet from the research I have done.

In my next blog I will take a look at the other best and worst times to post to your favorite social networks.

Blackberry World Application List – Whats In and Whats Out


BBAppWorldBlackberry World Application List

Whats In & Whats Out

By Corey GmaN

Lots of topics going around with apps in Blackberry 10 and if they are going to be included or not, so I made a current list, and I can constantly update it to keep track if it is or is not coming to blackberry 10. Will be nice to have one reference point to view. I am not going to list every app that is going to be in Blackberry World, lets try to key on the top 200 or so apps.  The bigger players in the market.  And just to stop some of the rants, we all understand that you only need certain apps for your lifestyle, but just keep in mind everybody is different.  I am also assuming a lot of the not included apps will be announced before the phones are available in the US.

NOTES:

  • If you can use the app in the browser, it is not counted as included in Blackberry 10
  • If the app is side-loaded from android it is also not counted as included in Blackberry 10
