When is the best time to read a tweet?

A lot of thought goes into making a blog, a post, a tweet or what ever you want to call it.

Seriously! People spend ages creating great copy, coupled with fantastic images and super SEO.

“When is the best time to tweet?”

So, not only has some poor soul spent hours, if not days or weeks, researching, collating and writing about a subject they feel passionate about, but now they have to tear their hair out over the horror of posting it?

It is time for change.

Ask not when is the best time to tweet, but when is the best time to read a tweet?

Give the authors a break and read at their leisure.

Wake up in the middle of the night if you have to. It may be the best time to catch those pearls of wisdom from your favourite personality.
