One of the most useful features of SocialBro is its Best Time to Tweet report. SocialBro analyzes the timelines of your followers and generates a report showing you when you should be tweeting to reach the maximum amount of followers and gain retweets and replies. Not only does this function allow you to see your online followers and potential exposure by hour and day of the week, you can also create multiple reports segmented by different criteria e.g. by location.
The Best Time To Tweet report is accesible from the dashboard and is only available for the current account you are logged in with (if you’re not a user of SocialBro Pro you have to wait approximately two hours to get the report). When it is ready, you’ll receive an email informing you.
IMPORTANT: The report is generated based on your top 100 followers(free version)and once generated it’s available for the following seven days, after which you should apply for a new report.
In SocialBro Pro, the report is automatically generated based on:
- Your top 500 followers (Premium plan)
- Your top 1000 followers (Professional plan)
- Your top 5000 followers (Business Plan)
Once you have received the email, click on the Best Time to Tweet button to visualize the report. You can also export it to PDF.
The report consists of the following charts:
When your followers are online
This matrix represents an estimation of when your followers are tweeting. The bigger and redder the circle the more followers are online at that point in time. The black sphere(s) represent your best time to tweet in the next 24 hours and your best time to tweet of the week.
Online followers by hour
This chart represents what % of your followers are online during the day. If you click on one day (Monday, Tuesday, etc.) you can see the % for this specific day.
Online followers by day of week
This chart shows the % of followers grouped by the day of the week, so you’ll know which days are the best to tweet.
Potential exposure by hour and by day of week
