    Earlier I used to hit the tweet button as soon as I published a new Hub no matter what time it was. Not any more. I realized that timing is the key on Twitter. If you tweet in the night when most of your followers are asleep or early in the morning when they are busy with their motions your tweets will fall on deaf ears. On the other hand if you tweet your new Hub between 11AM and 1PM when most people are in the office or in front of their computers checking their mail or tweets, your Hub has a far better chance of getting noticed. What say?

      To be honest the benefits from twitter are so low that unless you automate it, it is not worth a huge amount in any case. twitter does have some value, but I would not bother holding off to a certain time to post to it.

        Automate with a free service or a paid service?

          You can use either.

          I have a pretty good tool for creating a targetted twitter list, but even with that the payouts are pretty small.

      I run my Hub page rss through to my twitter account (using twitterfeed.com) so it posts automatically.

      I think it's helpful enough to do that much but don't expect it to make me any money as thisissoli said...

    we all are not in the same time zone. Using has tags properly is the key. Just my thoughts smile I don't care twitter visitor though.

    Yes, Twitter is useful only when you have a number of followers and your tweet gets retweeted by many. Then it really counts. As for automated tweeting there is a nice free Wordpress plugin called Write Tweet using which you can schedule tweets for future delivery. Can be used to tweet your Hubs too!

      If you use hashtags you will reach more than your followers.

      HootSuite lets you schedule your tweets in advance. I occasionally do that so I can send out a series of related hubs daily.

        I've been researching hashtags and HootSuite because of your post, UW. I had no idea, and am glad for the new info (to me).

        This is what I love about the forums here. When you strike gold as a result of people sharing info and knowledge. And there are some very useful comments in this thread.

        Much appreciated, all!

    I believe the key to Twitter is targeted traffic.  If you have a niche, you will get Twitter traffic.  Your Twitter account must match the subject.

    I had a general Twitter account and my time there was wasted.  I have just opened specific niches and those are actually returning traffic!  Yeah!

    Picking the best people to follow and "pruning" is key.  Set very high standards for your follows, prune who you are following on Twitter - they must be in your target niche and I also have started a regular routine where I unfollow anyone who has 1.) no photo 2.) doesn't fit my target market.

    Do NOT do automatic follows on Twitter - this is critical.  I have where I am "automatically following" sex toys and cleavage and other Twitter people who I don't need and I definitely don't wish to promote.  Do take the time to block these people from your Twitter account.  Numbers do not mean anything in Twitter - it is quality just as content here on Hub Pages rules - quality on Twitter is important.

      I did an auto follow once too and then spent the next week deleting people I was following who were basically nothing but spammers.

        You are right - the spamming is bad but oh, my, the identities are often items I don't want my name associated with.

        Beware - free is not free on the internet - earn your followers.  I feel sorry for men - the auto followers they sign me up for were all sex toys and cleavage - I spent hours blocking those clowns.
