    Amazing piece of information. New point of view for me, I learned a lot from it, and for sure I will put these points in account while dealing with my social media hereafter.

I think the impact of this article will go far to the people who wants to build a real social media enthusiasm, effectiveness and efficiency to achieve their goals, also to spread tolerance, love, respect and accepting others.

    1. Cool, you have summarised it. There is a piece of the pie for each one’s goals and targets on social media.
      I appreciate the time you took to read this through.
      Let me know how this works our for you.

  3. I knew that the half-life of a tweet was short – I thought it was around 15 minutes.
    I had buffer scheduled once per hour but at random minutes past the hour to try and hit differently, on the days I remember to schedule my tweets that is!

    I find the timing on social media so difficult because I have a mixed UK/US audience and with differing timezones it’s sometimes hard figuring out if I should tweet 5pm UK time or US time…so I tend to try and cover my bases.

    Also I find listicles doing well on Twitter. No images or links, just a list with emjoi’s- they tend to do very well as do videos.
    Thanks for the all info on the lenghts of posts and timing. I may try that 5-7 pm in my tweeting schedule in the coming month. Have a great weekend!
