Quarantined and isolated, everyone is getting more time to focus on important questions. Some avid Twitter users are wondering if there’s a best time to tweet. On a platform like Twitter, where the time of your tweet is relevant on what’s displayed on the feed, it would be wise to assume that the time of the tweet does matter.

Twitter displays tweets to all its users in two kinds of feeds. The latest feed displays the tweets in reverse chronological order. And, the top feed displays top posts based on user Twitter’s algorithm and ranking.

If your tweets are going out at the time when your followers are online, there are chances that your followers will see them on their latest feed. If you’re sending most of the tweets when your followers are offline, they may or may not come across your tweet on one of their feeds. If you post when it’s best time to tweet, your tweet stays at the top when your followers are scrolling and gives you maximum exposure.

Hence, it’s important to schedule your best tweets at best times. In this article, we will look at the easiest way to know your best time to tweet for your Twitter account.
