I found this little gem on Effrosyni Moschoudi’s blog, then traced it to its origins, on QuickSprout. If you feel overwhelmed by all this, Neil Patel, the infographic’s creator, has this to say in conclusion:
“If you only have time to follow one piece of advice from this infographic, make sure you tweet on Saturday and Sunday at either 9am, 12pm, 3pm or 6pm as that is when you’ll end up getting a lot of engagement.”
Why not test your Twitter skills by reading my children’s book, Runaway Smile, for free and tweeting about that?
Great infographic Nicholas. Thanks.
Glad you found it useful 🙂
Thanks, glad you thought so 🙂

If anyone isn’t already bored with this topic, the failure of Twitter to achieve the expectations of financial analysts this quarter has been in the news the past couple of days, and you can read about some of the reasons why in articles on the web. Here’s a quote from the article “Social Media Punished as Results Fall Short” (NYT): “Twitter has had particular difficulty in the last few months persuading marketers to buy ads designed to prompt the viewer to take an action.” And another quote from a different article, “Twitter Troubles” : “Mr. Freeman said that, in general, Twitter is best for building brand awareness and recall. Its weakness is the ability to measure direct-response effectiveness.”
I had missed those, Thanks for sharing! 🙂
Very nice. As A-Z is now over, I can focus on building my Twitter base. 🙂 One step at a time to a fully functioning network of social media.
Go for it 🙂

Look the Infographic Nicholas has found 😀
Useful infographic. Thanks for sharing. I’d wondered if Twitter is busier on certain days of the week.
(“PEEK TWEETING HOURS.” *shakes head*)
Yep. Check out https://nicholasrossis.me/2014/11/28/when-to-post-to-social-media/ 🙂
The time windows are a good advice… pity that the best time to twitt is when I sleep 🙁
That’s because I live in Europe, but the majority of people I follow and follow me back live in the USA.
Same here. That’s why I use services like Buffer and Socialoomph to schedule my tweets. I do the same with my blog posts, too.
Yes, I do the same. Although I read many people discuraging scheduled twits.
I try to be online and engage early in the morning and late at night, because I’ve noticed those are good times for engagement.
I am such a lousy Twitter user. The tips are great. Most I was already taught… but …. I am such a lousy Twitter user… 😉
Lol – I know what you mean 😀
Great information, Nicholas! Thanks for sharing!!!
A pleasure. Glad you enjoyed the post 🙂
Not fond of Twitter…my head is full of too many words. But, I have found a very different response based on the time of day that I post. Interesting ? Great graphic. ☺ Van
Interesting, indeed! Thanks 🙂
This is great info! With my blog I find posts do better during work hours, like everyone is online instead of doing their job — LOL — so this is really helpful to know that weekends are prime time. Love infographs!
Lol – get back to work, people! 😀
Love the infographs. Thanks for sharing!
A pleasure! Glad you enjoyed it 🙂

Twitter is one of the harder social media’s I’ve tried to conquer. Nicholas has posted this little gem giving a some insight into the process! Thanks for this Nicholas. ~Elle
I hope it helps 🙂
Good stuff, but I’m still skeptical (like Sue Bridgewater) as to whether Twitter engagement translates into book (or any other) sales. A lot of the arguments made in favor of Twitter and FB and Instagram and whatever flavor of social media is hot at the moment seem to be causation/correlation confusion, i.e. following a brand on Twitter doesn’t make us buy the brand. We follow on Twitter because we’ve already bought the brand. That 67% of people who follow a product on Twitter also purchase the product doesn’t mean whole lot when you consider the fact that they probably were going to buy it anyway.
Still, it’s free (for the most part), so there’s that.
As is happens, Sally just reblogged this with the following comment:
“Some people do not believe that Twitter actually helps you sell books but I have found that there is a knock on effect. In the last year Twitter has been the second highest referrer to my blog. Whilst my blog is mainly informational it is also one of my store fronts. Not everyone will buy but getting them in the door is the first step.”

I’d rather read an infographic than a boring report. Picture ARE worth thousands of words. Still overwhelming statistic but easy to read. 😮
It does help, doesn’t it 🙂
It’s so compact, yet all the information is there. I’m a visual type and an infographic is awesome to me.
Reblogged this on Legends of Windemere.
I haven’t followed the links yet, Nick, but the question in my mind is how one can accurately measure what effect all this is having on the reception (and sales!) of one’s work? Can anyone who has twittered for years respond to me on that, as it seems very time-consuming to one who hasn’t ventured there yet – so what are the practical returns, beyond the glow of finding followers?
It depends on how well you handle Twitter (and social media in general). I suggest you read Rayne Hall’s “Bible” on the matter: https://www.amazon.com/Twitter-Writers-Authors-Tweeting-Success-ebook/dp/B00KUCPG6G
and my post
on brand-building for some tips on that 🙂
I dont generally like info graphics Nick but this one is easy to read and very useful. I might just print it out and display next to my laptop…
Glad you found it useful 🙂
Some interesting stats there Nicholas. Great advice for those seeking to promote work, without doubt.
Best wishes, Pete.
Thank you for the mention, Nicholas! I must say, this particular bit of info left me clueless on this otherwise, awesome infographic. I mean, the US has four timezones. Which one shall we presume the guy meant? Is it EST by default? If anyone knows, please be sure to share 🙂
Thank *you* for the great resource! 🙂
Time zones rather overwhelming. Some infographics I have seen assume EST as default, but that can vary, so I’m not sure what the case is with this one. 🙁
We’re actually on EDT time now, so if you use a conversion chart check EDT until autumn.
Ah, thanks for that reminder 🙂
I’m American and I’ll say that time is always EST/EDT unless stated otherwise. I can’t think of a time where I’ve ever seen time given as a default to any other zone, but I’m on the East Coast, so perhaps I’m biased. Maybe a West Coaster can chime in on this.
Thanks for that! 🙂
