Schedule Your Tweets for Maximum Impact


Do you ever feel like your tweets are falling on deaf ears? Does it seem like the big shots get all the Twitter love? Timely is a web app that purports to combat those problems, enabling your tweets to be published “when they’ll have the highest impact.”

To use Timely, you have to create an account ,and then authorize Timely to use your Twitter account. You then write your tweet from within Timely, and go about your business. The tweets aren’t published instantly. Instead, Timely analyzes your past 199 tweets to figure out the best time slots, and uses this information to auto-schedule your tweets. If you prefer, you can tell Timely to publish your tweet within 30 minutes. Timely also claims to be able to learn as your followers grow.

I find a service like this interesting, since Bobby and I have previously pondered when we should publish our tweets. I’ll be curious to see how effective it is.

Timely is free, but you can also purchase a Pro account for $9.99 a month or $99  a year. The Pro account gives you improved analytics, the ability to post to Facebook and LinkedIn, the ability to email tweets, and more.

Is this a service that you might use?
