- There is a rush hour in tweeting. Experts agree that within 10:00 AM to 4:00 are the hours when people are most likely at work and doing something with their computer. Night time is also a great time to tweet since most people send out what they felt and did throughout the entire day. Take advantage of these hours so you can gain more requests and followers.
