Almost a year ago I documented my Introduction to the World of Tweeting, and am gradually getting a grip, as we say in the trade.
One of the subtleties is recognizing that my target audience tends to be online during business hours, and tends not to be so attentive outside those hours.
So I’ve tried to tweet about important topics – new services, new products, strong blog postings of mine and so on - during business hours, and outside of business hours I schedule those tweets to appear early in the next business day.
In the early hours of this morning I realized that I can still keep my name in front of people by using this slack time-of-day to retweet other users tweets, thereby getting myself into their good books (“Thanks for ReTweeting me!”), without cluttering up the twitter space during business hours.
Like I said, subtle but, I believe, significant.Talk to Me!
