Are Your Followers Seeing Your Tweets?

September 8, 2011 | By Adrienne Smith

Are Your Followers Seeing Your Tweets?Are you as clever as some other marketers and schedule your tweets when you know your followers are going to read them.

I know they have services like Buffer where you can schedule them at the times they have figured out when your followers are on Twitter.  But you can only schedule ten tweets a day with their free account.  To be honest with you, I tweet a whole lot more than just ten times.

That was the only service I was aware of until recently.  Yep you know me…  When I learn something new, I’m sharing it with you.

I have my good buddie, Mouh over at Effortless eBook Writing Blog, to thank for that too. He wrote a post recently about a service he had located that would actually tell you when your followers are on Twitter and checking out your posts.

I decided to share this with you in a video since some of you seem to like when I do those. Personally, I think you guys just want to hear me talk.  :-)

Before I start, let me apologize to Mouh for probably butchering his name.  Please forgive me dear, I seriously just have no clue how to pronounce it correctly!

Okay, without further adieu!!!

Now you know me, I want to hear from you.  Have you actually taken the time to schedule all your tweets when you know your followers have a better chance of seeing them?  Are you aware of another service that will do this too?  If so, please share so we can all have the options of using one we like the best.

Thanks for your input as always, you know how much I love learning from you guys.  You all just rock my world!

Adrienne, I just love your honesty and sincerity (not being able to pronounce those names).

Thank you for sharing this service! I have seen some terrific charts by Dan Zarilla that showed the best times to tweet, etc, but I would think it is different for everyone. This tool will definitely help.

All the best! -Adam
ps – still raining here is Philly!

Hey Adam,

I really thought seriously about doing a video knowing full well I had NO clue how to pronounce not only Mouh’s name but the service itself. But I have no problem admitting that I have NO clue and that you don’t have to “know it all” in order to move forward in this business.

I agree Adam, there are charts people can show but they aren’t your followers. The people who follow you the most may have wacky work schedules and aren’t online when everyone else usually it which is why these types of services are really helpful. I mean we want our followers to see our tweets, right! Glad you found this one helpful.

Darn it Adam, send that rain over here. Now we have fires to put out too! Our lakes and rivers are starting to dry up and now air lifts are taking the water to fight the fires. The one in our area has been burning for four days now. Urgh!!! This is just unbelievable. People are having things happen in their immediate areas that are way out of the norm.


3 Bryce Christiansen September 8, 2011 at 12:21 PM

Hi Adrienne,

I didn’t know about Tweriod so thank you. I also have to say your voice is very welcoming so I can see why your readers enjoy video.

You’re a great example for my latest blog. You definitely understand your social media psychology :)

Thanks again,



4 Adrienne Smith
September 8, 2011 at 2:04 PM

Hey Bryce,

You are welcome, glad you found this helpful.

I think people just like to hear me talk. Oh, and mess up too! I openly admit to not knowing it all so butchering names is just part of it I guess! lol…

Thanks for that Bryce, I appreciate that. I do love social media and I do love building relationships and getting to know people. See, I think we are even becoming buddies too! :-)


5 Steve Roy
September 8, 2011 at 12:34 PM

This is actually a very useful tool and I discovered it a few weeks ago. I think most people just send out their tweets without ever thinking if they are actually reaching their readers.

While this isn’t a perfect method, Tweriod is still quite helpful.


6 Adrienne Smith
September 8, 2011 at 2:06 PM

Hey Steve,

I’m glad you discovered this one a little while back too! I’ve known about a few but I like that this one breaks down the days.

You are right and I’ve been guilty myself. I read the posts, I’m sharing the content and I’m moving on. I have no idea if the content is being seen or not but this way I have a better understanding of when my followers are online so I can get that information in front of them. It sure will help us all in the long run.

Thanks for the comment and hope all is going well with you.


7 Carolyn
September 8, 2011 at 12:54 PM

Hi Adrienne, What a helpful video! Thanks for explaining this great service so clearly. And I love your voice. You have a very happy voice that makes me smile every time.

Maybe it’s a North/South thing, but I guessed different on both of those words. Mouh I’ve been pronouncing “Moo”, which my daughter thinks is funny, but we all love Mouh, don’t we! :-) Awesome blog, awesome person. Just like you, Adrienne!

And this service I’ve been pronouncing Tweriod like “Period”. But I’m probably wrong on both counts. Perhaps Mouh can clear up this confusion?

Thanks for another great post, my friend!


8 Adrienne Smith
September 8, 2011 at 2:13 PM

Hey Carolyn,

Glad this one was helpful and I have Mouh to thank for that. I think my happy voice is mostly about laughing at myself since I openly admit to cremating poor Mouh’s name as well as the service. :-)

You are probably right about the North/South thing. Don’t you like the Moe better? Now that’s his nickname too since there was no way I would ever be able to pronounce his full name. I hope he drops by soon and clears this up for us all. Oh, and forgives me too! He is awesome for sure and not only as a great person but his blog just rocks. I learn something new every time I visit. And the stuff he gives away over there. What a doll!

I can see pronouncing it like Period. But I also see the riod and I think of royed (you get the drift). It’s that North/South thing again. Heck, I don’t know and I guess it’s not really important. As long as we like the service, I guess that’s what really matters.

Thanks for stopping by Carolyn and it’s always a pleasure to see you.


9 Joanne Cipressi
September 8, 2011 at 12:59 PM

Thanks Adrienne for sharing this service. I have never heard of this. I am now waiting for my report so this should be interesting. This will save me time, because I have been trying to figure it out by watching the patters of mentions, RTs and conversations so I know when to tweet certain encouragement tweets.

Thanks again for sharing another useful resource!


10 Adrienne Smith
September 8, 2011 at 2:16 PM

Hey Joanne,

Glad to hear that you signed up and are waiting for your report. I know you’ll find this helpful for sure.

I also tried to figure out my followers by their mentions but I think they may be like me on that respect. I usually will thank my followers later in the evening after I’ve done everything instead of throughout the day when I’m online. So that might be the case with other people too but who knows. Just hope you find this report as helpful as I did.

Enjoy your afternoon! :-)


11 Jeffrey Morgan
September 8, 2011 at 1:51 PM

Hi Adrienne,
I like to schedule my tweets about once every thirty minutes between the hours of 6.00A.M and 12.00 P.M. While I would love to have more of an interaction with my readers as a response to my tweets, the real pay-off comes in the form of search engine rankings. Oh goodness, Google loves to rank my tweets. Gives a whole new meaning to “Ping”!!!

Oh by the way, my love letter to you is ready over at the Bloggers Market comments section!


12 Adrienne Smith
September 8, 2011 at 2:27 PM

Hey Jeffrey,

So you prefer sending the tweets out more for ranking than actual sharing? Okay, I can see that and I can see how you’d love doing that too. That’s pretty smart indeed my friend. Thanks for sharing that little trick with us.

Okay, you need to get the plug-in called “ReplyMe” so I’ll receive a notice every time you respond to a comment. That way I’ll know and can come back and jump back in. Hope to see that one soon. :-) Thanks for letting me know though. Guess I’ll be seeing you again soon.


13 Jeffrey Morgan
September 8, 2011 at 2:32 PM

Reply Me ??? I thought that was “Rescue Me”!


14 Jeffrey Morgan
September 8, 2011 at 3:00 PM

Yes ma’am, that’s just what the doctor ordered! Part of my empire rests on your hard work! Thank you Adrienne.


15 Adrienne Smith
September 8, 2011 at 3:55 PM

I guess I’m going to have my work cut out for me right Jeffrey! Three blogs, wow… At least you’ll only be blogging once a month on a few of them. Give me a little break. But I’m excited and anxious to see the other two you still have under construction. Eagerly awaiting my friend. :-)


16 Bill Dorman
September 8, 2011 at 2:14 PM

I guess you need to have scheduled tweets to find out when they are being seen. The only scheduled tweets I have is through Triberr. Somebody in our office developed a system called Injectwit that I have access to and will probably start trying to schedule some tweets.

Us with southern type accents can call it anything we want. However, it think tweriod will sound like period, not steroid. But that’s just my take……Mouh as in mouth is on his own…………..:)


17 Adrienne Smith
September 8, 2011 at 2:36 PM

Hey Bill,

What this service does is tell you when the people you are following are on Twitter. Once you know that, you have a better idea of what times you should share tweets so that they will be online and actually see them.

If you are tweeting other people’s content that you just read while visiting their blog, it’s best to schedule those tweets during the times you know your followers will see them instead of just sharing them at the time you read the post itself. Make sense?

So you have someone in your office that came up with a system as well. That’s pretty cool and heck yeah, I’d use them. I think it’s pretty cool.

You are right Bill, and I will call it anything I want as you probably noticed! lol… I guess as long as I don’t know then I don’t feel so stupid! :-)


18 Eric VanderSchaaf September 8, 2011 at 1:45 PM


Tweriod is a super cool service. And this post is great! It’s always really cool to see other people engaged and talking about optimizing social media posts.

Our company http://Queued.At does just what you are talking about! The best part is it’s just 1 button. When using our service, or the bookmarklet for your toolbar, you can queue up any piece of content and hit our ‘SmartShare’ button and our algorithm will determine the best time and day for your post.

ALSO, we offer the ability to post across multiple social networks (and optimize for them too!) like Facebook, Twitter, and LinkedIn. Google Plus coming soon…. :)

The more a user posts with our technology the smarter and smarter the system gets for that *specific* user. Users aren’t just clumped together – the artificial intelligence we’ve made improves on a user-specific basis.

Would REALLY love your feedback on our product/service…we’re a startup out of Dallas and looking for great advice from smart people :)

All the best Adrienne,

Eric VanderSchaaf


19 Adrienne Smith
September 8, 2011 at 2:23 PM

Hey Eric,

Thank you for stopping by and engaging in this conversation. First off I have to say that I love that your company is based in Dallas, I’m here in Houston.

Now are you saying that your service is similar to like Buffer where it will tweet, share or whatever the information we want to share when it decides is the best time for our followers to see it? Like right now I schedule my tweets to go out during the times I know they will be online through a third party service. What you are saying is that I don’t have to do that, your service does all of that for me? If that’s the case, that is really cool and you can bet I’ll try it out and give my readers my opinion of how I think it works.

That’s really cool and again, thank you for sharing this with us. I will give it a test drive and then do a post to update my readers on this.

Thank you Eric! Hope you guys aren’t as hot as we are. But I know you are!


20 Eric VanderSchaaf September 8, 2011 at 2:52 PM


Of course – I’m glad to part of the conversation! Also, great to talk to someone in Texas too!

Yes, we are able to determine the best day and time to send a Tweet, Facebook Share, and LinkedIn Post after crunching a bunch of variables about you and your audience. All you have to do is copy and past the link you want to share into our app or just use the bookmarklet for your toolbar and it will auto-populate.

Check it out…it’s free and there isn’t any limitation to how many posts you can make a day!

Let us know if you have any questions! Best,



21 Adrienne Smith
September 8, 2011 at 4:07 PM

Hey Eric,

Yep, another Texan here my friend and thanks for answering my questions.

I did sign up for the site to check it out and will give it a run for it’s money starting tomorrow. I already had a lot set up today from my commenting so will start fresh tomorrow. I saw where I can drag the bookmarklet into my browser and just click it from there. That’s really cool Eric and I really appreciate you stopping by today and sharing this with me.

So is there anywhere I will be able to tell which tweets were sent and at what times? I like that Tweriod tells me the best times to tweet my stuff so that gives me an idea. That would be a cool feature to have. Just curious about that one. That way we know they went and not have to worry about constantly checking our account. Just a thought!

Thank you again Eric for answering my questions. I will use it tomorrow and I think it will be great that I won’t have to go and schedule all my posts.



22 Marianne Worley
September 8, 2011 at 3:02 PM

Hi Adrienne,

I downloaded my Tweriod report a month or so ago when I stopped using the Tweet Old Post plugin and started sending out my old posts manually, using Buffer. It was extremely interesting to see what times were optimal. For me, I saw a drop off before 6am and after 3pm. So when I’m reading blogs and re-tweeting them, if I’m far outside of those hours, I schedule the RT using Hootsuite.

I haven’t analyzed the results of these techniques, but I have found that I get more RTs, in general.


23 Adrienne Smith
September 8, 2011 at 3:54 PM

Hey Marianne,

Thanks for sharing that with us. That’s good to know and you are right. During my particular times I try to go ahead and tweet right then but if I’m out side those times then I schedule mine with SocialOomph. Just so much easier to do that way because I want to make sure I share everyone’s great information.


24 Jack
September 8, 2011 at 4:45 PM


This is a good service and I think that I used them once before. I probably should take this more seriously, but I just don’t like to schedule things more than I have.

All of the Triberr stuff I have is automated so I am trying to be more “organic” about posting. Of course, if I paid attention to when people receive my tweets it might make that easier, but who wants to do things the easy way any how. ;)

Hope you are having a great day.


25 Adrienne Smith
September 8, 2011 at 5:29 PM

Hey Jack,

I can understand not wanting to schedule too many things ahead of time Jack. I don’t really like to do that either but I would prefer doing it that way if I know the content will have a better chance of being seen.

I still have my triberr posts set to automatic because I have a LOT of posts to tweet and that would be double the time to have to schedule all of those too. Wow!!!

Thanks for the comment and I’m having a really good day. Hope you are doing the same.


26 Lynn Brown
September 8, 2011 at 5:38 PM

This looks like a great service to discover the times my followers are online. Thanks for sharing this Adrienne.

As for scheduling tweets, I love the MarketMeSuite platform. You can schedule by the day and time, it is a snap and I love it. So I do schedule most tweets on certain days that I see my account more active.

But this tool you showed today could really hone it in farther. Oh oh, might mean getting another VA!! Thanks again Adrienne!


27 Adrienne Smith
September 8, 2011 at 7:59 PM

My pleasure Lynn, hope you find it as helpful as I have.

I tried that program and I hate to say it but I hated it. Know a few other friends that felt the same way so as long as you like it, that’s all that matters. But you can just learn what time your followers are online and then schedule them accordingly. That’s the really great benefit to this service.

Appreciate you stopping by and thanks Lynn for your comment. Really enjoyed the interview with Diana. Great job and I learned some new things.


28 Brock Blohm
September 8, 2011 at 6:02 PM

lol You crack me up, Adrienne!

Cool service. I am not a huge twitter user. I basically use it to promote other peoples content. Strange, huh? I’m a Facebook kind of guy. I love Facebook. It’s much more personal, I feel.

I probably tweet once a day for me, and way more for everybody else. Strange, once again. lol Sweet tool, though – especially if you are big in to twitter! :)


29 Adrienne Smith
September 8, 2011 at 8:08 PM

Hey Brock,

Are you laughing at me because I don’t know how to pronounce those names? I laughed at myself too! I do that a lot you know.

That’s great that you use Twitter mostly for sharing other people’s content. I do too although I share my own posts when they are published. Because of all the friends I’ve made, they now share my content too. I’ve made some great connections through Twitter.

I can understand your love of Facebook though, it’s one of my favorite places to hang out too. A lot more personal over there is right. More conversations can take place.

When you get ready to take it up a notch, be sure and check out this service. :-)


30 Deeone
September 8, 2011 at 6:39 PM

Awesome share Adrienne!

I’m learning so much about Twitter these days. There are so many hidden secrets and tricks behind the curtains. This little contraption will definitely come in handy.

The knowledge that comes from you is unbelievable! I for one, thank you for sharing your secrets with me. You’re a beginner blogger’s fuel tank I tell you; I simply must come by for a refuel. Awesomeness!

Enjoy the rest of your evening lovely lady,



31 Adrienne Smith
September 8, 2011 at 8:11 PM

Hey Deeone,

Glad you enjoyed it and hope the video was helpful.

I’m thrilled to hear that you are enjoying learning some things over here Deeone. Now if you want to know anything in specific just let me know and I can either point you to a post I wrote about it or how you can learn more. Your wish is my command! :-)

I’ll definitely enjoy the rest of my evening and you do the same. See you later!


32 Deeone
September 8, 2011 at 9:23 PM

Thank you Adrienne, and I surely will. ;)


33 Janet
September 8, 2011 at 5:40 PM

Adrienne, aloha. Thx so much yet another great tutorial introduction. As soon as I hit publish, I am going to go over to sign up for Tweriod. Though scheduling makes sense, I must admit I have not done it. Actually, that is quite foolish on my part since the East Coast is up 6 hours a head of me.

Adrienne, once again I appreciate you inspiring me to action. Until later, aloha. Janet


34 Adrienne Smith
September 8, 2011 at 8:01 PM

Hey Janet,

Glad to hear that you signed up as well and yeah, since you are all the way in Hawaii, your twitter followers may be on more when you are in bed so why not tweet when you are up. I know the feeling though, I just tweeted when I read something I liked instead of considering the possibility that my followers might not be online at that time. Dah! Silly me! If that means I have to schedule them, so be it.

Thanks for your comment Janet and glad I was able to inspire you. Now, take some action girl! :-)


35 Janet
September 11, 2011 at 6:51 PM

It just dawned on me that I haven’t heard back from them since I signed up. Better go re-sign up.

Did you have a chance to read the posts on Twylah yet? Adrienne, I believe it can be a super tool for us.


36 Adrienne Smith
September 11, 2011 at 7:57 PM

It took all day to hear back from them but I eventually did. I also forget it was going to be through my Twitter DM which I’m not as use to checking on a more regular basis. Hope they came through.

I briefly had a chance to read the post. Have saved them both to go back to when I can concentrate better. It sounds like a really cool idea though. Will study it a lot more though and then of course, I’ll probably be writing a post with what I learned.

Thanks for sharing that post and your site Janet. That’s really cool.

Hope you’ve enjoyed your weekend and are looking forward to a good week ahead.


37 Justin
September 8, 2011 at 8:53 PM

HI Adrienne,
Mouh is a great source of new services and ideas. I always find so much useful information at his site.

I randomly retweet my posts when I remember to do so. Twitter is a great source of traffic so it would be beneficial to use a service that would help me with that.


38 Adrienne Smith
September 9, 2011 at 10:25 AM

Hey Justin,

He most definitely is and I just love visiting him. He also gives away all those really cool graphics too! What a guy!

I use to do that but I have so many people tweeting my posts now that I quit doing it myself. But I would like to tweet my older ones so am thinking about throwing that into the mix now. Hope you do find this service helpful Justin. Always appreciate hearing from you.

Enjoy your day!


39 Harleena Singh
September 8, 2011 at 11:00 PM

HI Adrienne,

Love this informative post- specially for those like me, who are not that well versed with Twitter as yet! I for one have never tried any of these services and mostly put up the links manually on Twitter, though it does get cumbersome at times. However, it does get confusing as to which one should one ideally go in for, with so many in the market!

The video is a great tutorial for me and I am learning so much from your posts!

Thanks for sharing them with all of us :)


40 Adrienne Smith
September 9, 2011 at 10:30 AM

Hi Harleena,

I found Twitter to be really confusing when I was first introduced to it as well Harleena. I just didn’t understand how a service where thousands of people are throwing up 140 character lines, were any of those people going to pay attention to what I shared. But as I finally got to learning more about just sharing other people’s information, eventually people will see you as someone who isn’t in this to promote their products constantly. People will start putting you on their list and paying attention to what you tweet. From there you’ll start meeting new people and building more relationships. So with a service like this, it will help you know when all your followers are actually online to see your tweets.

There are services such as TweetDeck, Hootsuite and SocialOomph that you can use for free to automate your tweets. That way you can set them up so they will be seen when your followers are online. If you need any help, let me know. Be more than happy to help with that.

Glad you enjoyed the video and are learning some things over at my place. That’s music to my ears.

Enjoy your day and your weekend as well.


41 Harleena Singh
September 9, 2011 at 11:33 AM

Thanks so much for the detailed reply. I do follow what you are saying and am going to start doing just as you say. I do tweet about other people’s posts, but most of them don’d respond back, because I do not know them also, nor do they know me, so that needs to be sorted out as well!

Do you feel we need services like TweetDeck, Hootsuite etc, though my time zones do differ from the others who follow me. Would love your suggestion as to which one should I go in for, if you do feel they are really required.

Thanks for all your help and support once again :)


42 Adrienne Smith
September 9, 2011 at 12:19 PM

If you are leaving comments on other people’s posts and then tweeting them, hopefully they will start returning the favor and you guys can get to know one another better. It just takes some time Harleena.

Because this particular service will tell you when the majority of your followers are online, due to different time zones, that’s why I think this service is pretty cool. So if you are commenting on blogs and wanting to tweet their posts yet this service shows that your followers aren’t online at that moment, then these third party services are great for automating those tweets for the times your follower are on.

Anyone of these services is good. I have had problems with TweetDeck when it comes to setting up scheduled tweets. Sometimes they go and sometimes they don’t. Have no clue why. Hootsuite is pretty easy to use so I would recommend them for now. I use TweetDeck though for my tweeting and setting up my lists. I’m not a big fan of Hootsuite for that.

Hope that was helpful Harleena and I’m sure you can Google how to use these service and locate a video that will walk you through it if you feel you need more assistance.


43 Harleena Singh
September 9, 2011 at 12:27 PM

Thanks so much Adrienne for all you help and support- it sure clears up the clouds!


44 Andy September 8, 2011 at 11:32 PM

hi Adrienne,

Thanks for the excellent post,im looking at it right now ,i do taking advantage in twitter which it really helping my blog grows .


45 Adrienne Smith
September 9, 2011 at 10:31 AM

Hey Andy,

Thank you for that, I’m glad you found this post helpful. This is a really cool service so I hope you find it as helpful as I have.

Have a great day!


46 Rusty
September 9, 2011 at 1:47 AM

This is a great tip! As always you have a wealth of helpful info! I have enjoyed using Twitter, and have had a good response only recently as I have experimented with the “hit and miss” method not knowing about such a wonderful service. I do wonder at times if I am just sharing my tweets with Tweetdeck, Hootsuite, or other automated serviced though instead of real people which can be a bit frustrating. But I have been connecting with a few great folks as time has gone on and I have gotten a wee bit smarter in my use of it. But I think this will help me tremendously. Thank you again dear Adrienne for being there and sharing these great tips!


47 Adrienne Smith
September 9, 2011 at 10:35 AM

Hey Rusty,

Glad you enjoyed the video and I really do find this service very helpful. I mean come on, telling me when to tweet so I will have a much better chance of all my followers actually seeing them. That’s pretty cool and all for free.

I’m glad to hear that you are having success with Twitter now. I think it just takes some time to get use to is. I know so many people use automated services but as long as you get on Twitter and you interact with some of your followers, that’s all you can do really. Just maybe get on there for 10 min. two to three times a day and check your tweets and interact with people. It’s like any other social networking site, you can’t get hooked and stay on there all day just chatting. That’s why these types of automated services come in handy.

Glad you enjoyed it and hope you enjoy your day! See you again soon Rusty!


48 Jimmy/Life Architect
September 9, 2011 at 2:09 AM

Hi to Everyone,

This might sound embarassing, but can someone point me to someplace where I can find out how to use twitter to improve my blog. Sorry newbie here.

Anyone care to give me a summary of how twitter will help right on this comment section.

Thank Adrienne for sharing your information again.



49 Adrienne Smith
September 9, 2011 at 10:40 AM

Hey Jimmy,

I wrote a post about Twitter back in February so this one might help you. If you need more information, just give me a shout and I’ll be more than happy to help.

My Twitter Revelations

I also have more information about Twitter on my training site in the “Social Media Marketing” section as well. What I share over there may be helpful too.

Have fun!!!



50 Diana Simon September 9, 2011 at 12:32 PM

Hi Adrienne,

Thanks for sharing this! I love stats and graphs so understanding when my followers are online and most exposure is great. There is a plugin I use “Tweet Old Post” which I really like as it gets different post tweeted automatically and often times that post hasn’t been seen by followers.

Other than that, I have been following your tips about being on Twitter a few minutes 3 times a day to personally respond to tweets. I am doing it with my other account and I finally see how it works :)

This new tool will definitely help me even more. Thanks!

All the best,


51 Adrienne Smith
September 9, 2011 at 3:38 PM

Hey Diana,

That’s great news, so happy to hear that. I’m loving this tool as well. Glad you are spending just a few moments a day on there. It really doesn’t take much, you don’t have to stay on there forever to chat with people and respond to posts.

Glad you found this helpful. :-)


52 Rachel Lavern September 9, 2011 at 9:00 PM

Thanks for sharing and demonstrating this app Adrienne. I had read Mouh’s blog post where he discussed researching best times to blog. I had to add it to my ‘future tasks’ list because I realized that, though it made sense to perform this research, I did not know when I would have time. Well…I can do it RIGHT NOW thanks to your simplification. Thanks so much and have a great weekend!


53 Adrienne Smith
September 10, 2011 at 1:13 PM

Hi Rachel,

I’m thrilled to hear that you had read Mouh’s post, he did a good job of explaining it. As of me, I thought a video might do the trick a little better. Glad you found it helpful and that you are taking the time to check out this site. I think it’s really cool to be able to schedule your tweets for the times they will be seen the most. I love this service.

Appreciate your input and thank you for sharing that with me. Hope you have a wonderful weekend as well. I definitely intend to!

Hi Adrienne,
Good post. I’d like to offer up a suggestion to one and all.
Even though there are services that are ‘free’, let’s support these terrific tools. Otherwise they won’t be around for long.
Just as we are all here to make money on the tools we offer, I encourage everyone to do the same with the tools they like.

Hi Morris,

You are so correct my friend. There are a lot of services that offer some really neat things that are free but there are others that we really need more from so it’s worth paying something for it. I mean we are all here to make some money which is why I enjoy visiting all my blogging friends and learning about the products and services that they recommend and knowing that I will definitely purchase it through them above anyone else.

I appreciate you pointing that out and thank you for your comment. Always enjoy hearing other’s opinions.

Hope you are enjoying your weekend.

This is the first time I’ve heard of Tweroid Adrienne and it does sound very interesting. I must have a look at it but even so I don’t think I’ll be using it at all. I don’t tweet all that much and when I do I would rather get a response then and there when I’m around ;)


57 Adrienne Smith
September 10, 2011 at 7:27 PM

But at least with this tool Sire you will know when your followers are online so that you can tweet. That’s the beauty of it. This service is an automated twitter tool, it just tells you when your followers are online so you can make sure they see your tweets.

Thanks Sire, always a pleasure to see and hear from you. :-)


58 Sire
September 10, 2011 at 7:30 PM

That is true Adrienne. OK, I’ll go and have a look at it. ;)


59 Mitch Mitchell
September 10, 2011 at 7:56 PM

I’ll answer this one with a “no” because that’s fairly true. All my blogs post between 9 & 10AM EST, and in the evenings, around 10 – 12 hours later, I try to post them again if I remember. I probably need to do it more often than that, since you might remember that I’m not a big automation guy except for that first post. Yeah, I know, I’m fighting technology; I’m a rebel that way. ;-)


60 Adrienne Smith
September 10, 2011 at 8:03 PM

That’s okay Mitch if you aren’t a big automated type of guy.

What this service does is just tell you when your followers are online so that they will actually see your tweets. If you are like me and mine say they are on in the afternoons and I’m commenting on blog posts in the mornings then it would be in my best interest to automate those tweets of my friends posts so that they are viewed in the afternoon. I want to help out my blogging friends but what good is it for tweeting their posts if they aren’t even going to be seen. That’s what I like about this service. So you can even schedule the time you’ll be doing your tweeting just from knowing when your followers are online.

Long winded explanation I know! Sorry about that! :-)

Thanks Mr. Rebel!!! I like Rebel’s, we need them to keep us in line.


61 Mitch Mitchell
September 10, 2011 at 8:33 PM

And I like that explanation; just seems like I’d have to really be on my toes to keep up. Not that being on my toes is such a bad thing.


62 Adrienne Smith
September 10, 2011 at 8:38 PM

lol… I’m over here picturing you on your toes! Now that would be a sight wouldn’t it! Okay, all kidding aside… Anyway, hope that helped some and yep, you would have to be more on top of it. But for your followers, it would be worth it!


63 Julie September 11, 2011 at 2:05 AM

Hi Adrienne,

Yes, we just love to hear you talk :-) And for those of us who’ve problem eye-sight, if you’d written all that down, I probably would not have read/understood it all properly.

That is a terrific little tool and free, double banger! You’re right, as the saying goes – ‘in the right place at the right time’ and that little tool puts your tweets there.

Thanks Andrienne for sharing that.
Take Care

ps. Now, the usual would be for me to tweet this post – will it be seen? So, there we go – time to go check out Tweriod.


64 Adrienne Smith
September 11, 2011 at 11:23 AM

Hi Julie,

That’s too funny Julie! I’ve had so many people tell me they like listening to me talk. I find that hilarious myself but I know that I enjoy hearing some people talk myself so I can’t fault them for that. I think I could have done a decent job writing it out in a post but let’s face it, this was just so much easier and quicker!

So, hope you checked with Tweriod to see if your followers are online so you can be sure and get those tweets out to them so they will see it! :-)

Thanks Julie, really appreciate your comment. Enjoyed hearing from you! Now, hope you are enjoying your weekend and your day!


65 Dia September 11, 2011 at 8:23 PM

Hi Adrienne,

Wow, this is nice to know when your followers are active. This is the first time I hear of this. I must say I don’t schedule my tweets, but it sounds a good idea to schedule my tweets when I have active audience. Thanks for sharing my friend, keep up the good work :)


66 Adrienne Smith
September 12, 2011 at 10:08 AM

Hey Dia,

Glad you found this post helpful, I sure did. It is kind of nice to know when your followers are online to even see your tweets so it can make a big difference for them actually visiting your site. Check it out and at least schedule the time you tweet during the times your followers are online if you don’t want to schedule them ahead of time.

Thanks for sharing your thoughts and I’ll be by to visit you soon. Have a wonderful day.


67 Cass September 13, 2011 at 2:19 AM

Hi Adrienne,

This sounds interesting and very helpful. Great video as well, the tutorial is very clear. You seem to make things easier for us with your tutorials. :)


68 Adrienne Smith
September 13, 2011 at 10:53 AM

Hi Cass,

Glad you found this information helpful. I do my best to make things easy since a good bit of us are a little challenged when it comes to learning things online. I certainly know I was.

Thanks for your comment, really appreciate it!


69 Sheila Atwood September 13, 2011 at 9:41 AM

When I signed up for Buffer they showed me how to use Twitteroid, it is a great combination. I use Twitteroid to see when to post and Buffer to schedule those posts. 50 Tweets in Buffer is all that I can handle and that is only $5.00 a month. I do like the combination.

Twitteroid also helped me decide the best time to post my blog. Because I am on Triberr and have sever people that automatically Tweet my new posts, I changed my posting time to latter in the morning so that the auto RTs would be seen by more of my followers.

As always I love your video!


70 Adrienne Smith
September 13, 2011 at 11:11 AM

So why would you pay $5 a month to tweet your message out when their are free services that will do that since you now know the times to send your tweets? I mean you have to set your tweets up anyway right? But I’m happy to hear that you are aware of this service and have been using it Sheila. You just gave us a wonderful reason why those two work so well together.

You know I didn’t really think about that. I publish my posts first thing in the morning but you are right, my followers are on later in the afternoon. But then again, my followers already know when I publish my posts and they aren’t necessarily waiting for a tweet to be reminded. So hopefully with setting up my posts to be published, the people on my Tribes that share my tweets have followers that are on at that time. But thanks for bringing that to our attention.

Glad you enjoyed the video! I aim to please! :-)


71 Sheila Atwood September 15, 2011 at 9:19 AM

I have found the Buffer interface easy to use. I like the fact that I can come to your blog, highlight a quote and Tweet it or add it to Buffer at peak follower times. I like the drag and drop feature, which makes it easy for me to fill the app with a natural looking sequence of Tweets.


72 Adrienne Smith
September 15, 2011 at 10:18 AM

So you use both services to tweet when you know your followers are on. I have the Chrome add-on on mine so I know what you mean. It does make things that much easier. Thanks for clearing that up Sheila.


73 Dee Ann Rice
September 13, 2011 at 3:02 PM


I love this also.

I also read Mouh’s post and used it then.

Love your video though. It is always nice to see something on video. Sometimes it makes everything much more clear. You do such a great job on your videos.

Dee Ann Rice


74 Adrienne Smith
September 13, 2011 at 3:07 PM

Hi Dee Ann,

I had a feeling you had read Mouh’s post and happy to hear you are using this service as well. What a fabulous service too, being able to tell us when our followers are online. I love that.

Appreciate that, glad the video was helpful. Sometimes they just come in much handier than writing out a long post. :-)




75 Jens P. Berget
September 17, 2011 at 4:26 PM

Hi Adrienne,

This is awesome. I have been using Buffer for a while, and I am combining it with Triberr. But, I have actually never seen anything like Tweriod. I am just testing it right now, and I can’t wait to see what it comes up with.

Thanks a lot :)

I have been tracking my links with as well, in order to see which tweets get the most clicks, but I’ve never checked anything about the time.



76 Adrienne Smith
September 17, 2011 at 8:36 PM

So your report is generating, I found it to be real interesting. The people that are following me are online at times I would have not necessarily thought but then again, what do I know. It’s come in very handy for me and now I can automate my tweets for when they are online. You’ll probably like this one Jens.

You are so very welcome and hope it’s as helpful for you as it has been for me.

You aren’t using That’s the one I prefer and it really comes in handy. Haven’t checked out Well, just something else to add to the arsenal! :-)

Have a great rest of your weekend Jens and I’ll see you again soon.


77 Mandy
September 19, 2011 at 1:22 PM

God, I’m hopeless when it comes to tweets, Adrienne. I just don’t think about things like timing, I just click the ‘tweet’ button when I read a post. I guess it’s more important if you are promoting an affiliate link or something, but I’m a random tweeter, not taken it seriously at all. I’m much more into facebook.

Enjoy the journey.



78 Adrienne Smith
September 19, 2011 at 3:39 PM

Hey Mandy,

I love Facebook as well and it’s more enjoyable for me interacting over there then on Twitter. But you can’t ignore how powerful it is and how much attention your blog can get if you start tweeting other people’s content without expecting to get anything in return.

I also would just tweet the posts but learned that the majority of my followers just might not be on at that time. Dah! Isn’t it a lot smarter to tweet when you have a better chance of them seeing them? Don’t take this service for granted Mandy. It can bring you a lot of traffic even if it’s not your all time favorite social networking site. I’m just saying! :-)


79 Mandy
October 1, 2011 at 2:42 PM

I will take your advice and use the ten free schedules and try to catch my audience a the right time in future. Thanks for sharing.

Enjoy the journey.

HI Adrienne, that really is a cool little tool isnt it? WOW there are so many nifty little tools available. This one is so common sense. Is it not amazing how many great minds out there?

Thanks so much for sharing Adrienne. You definitely are such a ‘go-giver’.

That is why I love visiting you so much. A ray of sunshine you are!



81 Adrienne Smith
September 19, 2011 at 3:54 PM

Why thank you Jayne, I appreciate that!

You are right, there are so many different tools out there that can help us. I loved finding this one and it’s come in very handy for me. You are right, it just makes so much sense which is why I am now trying to only tweet during the times my followers are online. I would much rather them see them than not.

Glad you find my posts helpful. I love hearing that! :-)


82 Pianolessongirl
September 21, 2011 at 4:03 PM

Hi Adrienne!
I know I’m getting in here kind of late, but I really appreciate you posting this. I use hootsuite to schedule my tweets ahead of time, but I have it manually set for one tweet every hour, but if I used tweriod it would make scheduling so much easier, I could then have more tweets scheduled for the good hours, and nothing scheduled for the dead hours…hmmm… :) Thank you for sharing this service! Especially because it’s free. ;) You gotta love the free stuff! :) Thanks for all your wonderful posts, and your helpful spirit.

Hey Dakota,

Great to see you again, so glad you stopped by.

I can just see the light bulbs going off in your head after reading this post. I thought it was a pretty cool feature as well. Now I’m able to schedule my tweets so that my follower actually have a better chance of seeing them now. So very helpful indeed.

You are so very welcome and glad you found this one helpful. I do enjoy helping others make life much simpler.

Adrienne :-)

September 28, 2011 at 1:48 PM

Thanks a lot for mentioning my blog Adrienne. You know what I couldn’t reply to this great post, right? My mother was in her deathbed when you were writing this one. But I really appreciate mentioning my blog. It means a lot to me. And I am disappointed I couldn’t check this post in the right time. But better late than never. :)

I didn’t forget the podcast either. I am listening to it tonight. I’ll comment on it tomorrow. :)

Thanks again and have a lovely evening.



85 Adrienne Smith
September 28, 2011 at 2:46 PM

Hey Mouh,

My pleasure Mouh and I do know why you never made it by to comment. I was worried about you when you didn’t come by for days. Looks like I had good reason to be as well.

So, how DO you pronounce your name? I know your full name but I don’t know how to pronounce that one either! lol… :-)

Don’t worry about getting caught up on those things. I’m sure you have plenty other things to do that are way more important and with being out of pocket for awhile, have even more to do. I just appreciate you whether you comment or not. You hold a very special place in my heart.

You enjoy your afternoon.


86 Fred Tracy
September 29, 2011 at 12:38 PM

What a useful tool. Already signed up. I put in my e-mail just because I have a habit of forgetting to check my Twitter direct messages.

I can’t believe it’s free!


87 Adrienne Smith
September 29, 2011 at 1:20 PM

Good for you Fred. Now you will be able to see when your followers tweet the most so you can be sure to set your tweets up when they are online. This is a great tool and I love sharing things that are free. That way, when I share something that costs, you KNOW I think it’s great! :-)


88 Daniel Lim
October 1, 2011 at 5:33 AM

Thank you so much for sharing that useful service Adrienne!

I found your blog while visiting Benny’s and Paul’s earlier and I must add that I have already read through a great deal of your articles in your archive. I’ve enjoyed every single one of them and found them useful, so here’s a big thank you!

A little bit about what I’m facing now, My twitter circle is currently limited to my close friends and spammers (whom I make an effort to block), mainly due to me protecting my tweets until recently, when I unprotected them after reading several excellent articles on why we shouldn’t protect our tweets on twitter.

I really hope I’ll be able to make good use of the service to time my tweets in order to promote my blog. Do you actually follow the timings they recommend to a T?

Looking forward to your reply! :D


89 Adrienne Smith
October 1, 2011 at 11:43 AM

Hi Daniel,

Well welcome to my blog and I’m thrilled you decided to hop over here and check me out. Benny and Paul are awesome guys, can’t say enough good things about them both. I’m happy to hear that you’ve been enjoying going through my archives. If you have any questions about anything, shoot me an email and I’ll be happy to help.

So what are you trying to accomplish on Twitter if most of your followers are only close friends? I mean are you trying to drive more traffic to your blog because Twitter is excellent for accomplishing just that, if you do it the right way.

If you want to delete all the spammers from your account, check out a free program called Manager Flitter. You can automatically pull up your followers who are just eggs, you can check out the last time they tweeted and it will even show you what their last tweet was. It will also show you the people who are not following you back.

Since I learned about the service, I am most definitely just timing my tweets now. Am keeping an eye on my traffic and I’m seeing a slight rise since changing my schedule.

Hope this was helpful.



90 Daniel Lim
October 1, 2011 at 3:20 PM

Hey Adrienne!

Thank you for your advice! You’ll definitely be a source of help I would be approaching if I encounter any difficulties.

I initially started twitter because I thought that it was an avenue for my friends and I to keep in contact with each other with short status updates. However, I realized that, that wasn’t what the realm of twitter was made out to be. By protecting my tweets, I was limited to a closed circle of 40~50 people, and this number never grew.

After unprotecting my tweets, I feel more liberated, and I get reassured that what I’m talking about via twitter is being received by people out there whom I don’t know. I’ve not received any new follows from other twitter users though.

When you mention that twitter is an excellent platform for driving traffic to my blog, do you mean that I have to have a substantial number of followers in place already? Or can I do it with whatever numbers I have. I currently have 53 followers :S and they’re mostly friends.

Thank you for sharing that service as well Adrienne! You’ve been a great help! I’m looking forward to your next reply :)


91 Adrienne Smith
October 1, 2011 at 5:19 PM

Hi Daniel,

It sounds like you need to find some new followers. You can search for people who have the same interests as you in order to get more followers who are actually interested in what you blog about. There are so many different tools you can use to find them but I’ll list three here for you so you can at least get started.!/search-home

You are going to need more followers since right now you just have your friends. You want to build up a better following so that more people will be introduced to what you have to share.

I wrote a few posts on Twitter so hopefully you’ll find them helpful. Way too much information to share in just this comment. Check these out.

October 2, 2011 at 2:16 PM

Hi Adriene,

It’s me again Daniel! Sorry to flood you with comments the past few days. The links that you’ve shared with me previously are great! I checked all of them out and they have awesome services. Thank you for sharing them!

I’ve also read your article “Twitter Revelations” and realized that I’m not doing a lot of the stuff you are. I did comment on that article and I always had this question which I mentioned on the other comment.

Just wanted to say, thank you so much for your help! And I’m looking forward to your next reply.



93 Adrienne Smith
October 2, 2011 at 7:37 PM

Hey Daniel,

No problem at all, glad that you found these posts helpful.

I replied to your other comment so let me know if you have any more questions.

Hope all is well with you today and you’re looking forward to a productive week. :-)


94 Barry Wells
October 1, 2011 at 6:52 AM

Hi Adrienne, don’t you just love G+… I’d have missed this post this morning if it wasn’t for someone commenting on G+ ;)

Tweriod looks really good. I’ve just hit the sign in and have set it in motion so I’ll soon be finding out what time is best to send them out ;) I also use buffer to schedule tweets and once I have the correct times to send them i may look upgrading.

I used to use Viral tweet Builder, which was really good, until they fell out with Twitter :( They keep promising a come back version but I’m still waiting to see it.

Thanks for passing on the word about Tweriod, much appreciated Adrienne.

Take care, Barry


95 Adrienne Smith
October 1, 2011 at 12:01 PM

Hey Barry,

I know you had some problems with your computer so you weren’t able to stop by for awhile and check out my posts. Guess this was one of them but glad you saw it in Google+. I need to use that more often, I’m so bad about that.

With you being in the UK, you might find that a lot of your followers are tweeting when you’re asleep. By scheduling your tweets so you can be sure that everyone will see more of them, then that can really boost traffic to your site. Can’t wait to find out how this works for you. I’m loving it myself.

Never heard of Viral Tweet Builder so sorry you had to go in search of another service. I’ve heard a lot of people like Buffer but since I already know the times to tweet, I just set those up in SocialOomph, which is a free program no matter how many tweets you set up. It’s worked really well for me.

Glad you enjoyed this one Barry and thanks for stopping by. Always a pleasure to see you.



96 Dawn Kay
October 2, 2011 at 12:27 PM

Hey Adrienne

Another thing I didn’t know you could do and it does really make sense to tweet when your followers are going to see them so I’m definitely gonna check Tweroid out.

I’ve just started using Buffer so once I find out what times are best for me I can schedule them accordingly, so that’s fab.

Thanks Adrienne…

I always learn something new whenever I come to your blog!

Take care



97 Adrienne Smith
October 2, 2011 at 7:29 PM

Hi Dawn,

Glad you found this little service helpful. It has really come in handy for me. I’ve heard a lot of good things about Buffer but if I recall, you can only set up nine tweets before you have to pay for their service. It may have changed since I last looked at it. I just set mine up through another free service and I’m done.

Thanks for sharing and so happy to hear you always learn something. Hope I can keep that up! :-)


98 Thea
January 23, 2012 at 4:07 AM

Hi Adrienne
Thanks so much for this. I will definitely be checking out this site. I am keen to see what results I get back. Should be very interesting.

I have heard of Buffer but didn’t know about the 10 tweet minimum.

So true we do like hearing you talk. :)

Thanks again for the great info.


99 Adrienne Smith
January 23, 2012 at 8:33 AM

Oh good, you found the post so I’m glad you found this one helpful. I’m sure most of your followers are on when you are asleep as it usually is when you live in a different country. :-)

Yeah, Buffer is great and they may have brought that number up I’m not sure. I just use SocialOomph to schedule my tweet because it’s a free service for what I use it for.

Ah, glad you enjoyed “hearing me”. Thanks Thea and have a great day!

Hi Adrienne,

It’s good to hear you. Just coming over from Tweriod and awaiting the results. Thank you Adrienne, thank you Mough.

I got to this post from from Barry Well’s latest blog post about Twitter. I real eyeopener of a post.

Reading his post and having him send me over here really improved my Twitter knowledge immensely.

Thanks again to you guys I hope to have my Twitter account improve. I will be sharing this on my networks,

Hi Terry,

Ah thanks… Glad you enjoyed this post and have learned a few new things. Barry’s post was wonderful and I appreciated him mentioning this one to help with knowing when your followers are actually online. I’ve found it to be extremely helpful for me.

I have no doubt that things will be looking up for you with traffic from Twitter very soon.

Thanks Terry!

Thank you Adrienne, I am Malika who had asked Eddie Gear some question. You offered to give my great advice and you did. I just me back and read more tomorrow.
I am going right now to Tweroid to check it out. I do right for more than my blog and need to do my share to promo and get views, so I think I will be buying more.
You are so correct about the times to Tweet etc.
thank you so much, Malika


105 Adrienne
November 17, 2012 at 10:59 AM

Well hi Malika and welcome to my blog. I definitely remember you and so happy you stopped by. Eddie is a great guy with so much wonderful information to share. Glad that this particular post helped you.

Just start with learning when your followers are online so that when you visit blogs and want to share their content, make sure you set the tweets up so that they will see them at the right time. Doesn’t do any good if no one is seeing them. If you need a free service to help you with that then be sure to check out my post on Buffer. It’s a fabulous program.

You are so welcome and I’m here if you need me.
