The Ultimate Twitter Infographic…

…is not here…

I didn’t embed it as I’m not sure who owns the copyright. I wanted to Pin it, but there wasn’t the option. You should check it out on the originator’s Web site here.

This is a summary of the key findings:

  • It would appear that brands should be tweeting at the beginning and end of the week and also the weekends… not Monday-Wednesday in the Middle East calendar…
  • Tweets are most effective between 8am and 7pm, Facebook posts are more effective in the other hours
  • You should tweet between 1-4 times a day and not more
  • Short 100 character tweets are more engaging
  • Tweets with links get 86% more retweets
  • Hashtags receive 2* as much engagement
  • Tweets with images  receive 2* as much engagement
  • Asking Followers to Retweet achieves 12* more success
  • If your spell out Retweet rather than the acronym RT 23* greater engagement is possible

You can download the full report here.
