When using Twitter, even if you don’t follow all that many people, you likely have experienced various tweets quickly appearing in your stream and disappearing just as quickly.
A lot of activity happens on Twitter and it happens relatively fast. That said, if you tweet something that you hope will be seen by your Twitter followers, and you only tweet it once, it’s very likely going to get lost in your Twitter followers’ stream. It may get seen by a few folks, but chances are it won’t get seen by as many as you were hoping.
There’s a simple solution to help your tweets be seen by more of your followers. Tweet multiple times a day about the same thing. You might be thinking, “Isn’t that wrong?” The answer is, no. Multiple tweets a day, spread out at different times of the day, and with slightly different messages (even if they point to the same link) is socially acceptable on Twitter. It’s also necessary if you want to maximize your tweets.
So the next time you go to tweet something write one or two variations of your tweet, and use a tool like Hootsuite to schedule all your tweets at one time. There are several tools like this, but specifically with Hootsuite you can write two or three tweets (I wouldn’t recommend tweeting more than three times a day, max) and schedule those tweets to distribute to Twitter at predetermined times. That means you can write your tweets and queue them up to be delivered to your Twitter followers in the morning, afternoon and evening at one time.
