# 4. Tweet on Weekends
Everyone is on twitter now on the weekend so I know it is easy to understand why to choose weekends for your best tweets. It is the best days of the week.
Late Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays will get you more engagement for aforesaid obvious reasons. Reports suggest that the engagement level on weekends is as high as 17 %.
# 6. Share Images in your Tweets
# 7. Ask for retweets
Ask for and you might get some. Ask more and who knows you get even more and make most of it by asking most. So, just start asking the accounts with more followers especially if you smell your prospects with them to retweet for you and share some.
Sharing is caring, so, you too show some care and retweet those who you want more retweets from.
# 8. Include Hashtags
Use hashtags appropriately and wisely to get more visibility among your target segment. Research and find out what your prospects are tweeting about. Throw random tweets also to the trending topics but make sure you safeguard your image by doing so.
# 9. Add links in Tweets
Reports have unveiled a startling fact that you hold 86% more chances of getting a retweet if you add a link in your tweet. It works well with some industries through and with a certain kind of audience.
If your industry doesn’t have a high attention span for content forget it but if it does so just stick to it and yield results.
# 10. What Should be the Maximum Tweets per day Limit?
Give more and get more. Don’t go absconding lest you want your followers to abandon you. Be regular with Tweet but don’t overdo at the same time. Most of the poeple would say you to tweet a maximum of four times day. But, i don’t agree!
Yu can Tweet even hundred times a day! My reason is simple- How many people be visible and active on Twitter? I think even the most active users would see your tweets 5-10 times in their timeline in a day.
The reason is: More active users means more followers and more friends on Twitter for them. Hence they won’t get to see much of your Tweets. Beside that, Twitter presents Tweets in your Timeline based on many parameters and decides not to display too many tweets from same users.
Benefits of posting a good numbers of tweets per day?
- More Tweets means chances of getting more retweets.
- More Tweets means chances of getting more often in the “Twitter Search” when people search a user or post using hashtags!
Especially on weekend touch upon the upper limits while in weekdays you may go well with half tweets a day depending on your other analysis.
