    You make my heart sing Jeff Bullas! I always gain fab tips from your posts, especially when they’re about my FAVE platform, TWITTER – thank you!

      Great to hear that you found the tips useful Ande. :)

    This article has de-mystified twitter somewhat. Thank you.

      Glad to hear I have somewhat demystified Twitter! :)

    Right time to tweet is between 12 to 2: AM/PM? Which time zone? Include one of the top retweetable phrases: where do I access a list of these phrases (apart from those on the infographic)?

      If you are global you need to to tweet most where your biggest audience is. For me 40% of my readers are from the USQ. I need to ensure I am tweeting when they are awake! :)

    Hi Jeff,

    You are right. Twitter has emerged as a very strong and effective marketing tool in the arena of social media. Everyone is busy and many don’t like reading all the stuff in a go. The short and simple also helps us to enrich it with high quality as there is no scope for stuffing useless words. I am sure that people with right acumen are using it in the right ways.

    Thanks for sharing your deep insights and motivating us to understand the power of social media marketing style using Twitter.

    12am – 2pm? Doesn’t make sense!

    • http://jeffbullas.com Jeff Bullas

      Middle of the day!

    • Kuratur

      I think that’s supposed to be 12 PM to 2 PM. It’s written below the clock icon as “noon to 2 pm”.

  • Perk Idea

    Twitter is also a community of like minded folks. I use twitter to inspire, to motivate, to add value, build new relationships. Well done Jeff.

  • Aleks George

    If you want it – just ask. Keep the good stuff coming Jeff!

    Another great article thanks Jeff. Good reminder for me about including hash tags especially #ff – which is more effective, grouping #ff’s or listing individually?

    Getting retweets is on my mind these days, so this was useful.

    I get a little squeamish over using “please RT”, though. It just seems cheezy or desperate-sounding to ask for a RT on every original tweet. Am I being silly?

    • http://jeffbullas.com Jeff Bullas

      The numbers show that asking works. For me I don’t ask, but you need to do what “you” are comfortable with.

        I agree with you Jeff. Some people have the reach to ask for retweets. Jeff, I was wondering if I could build a copy of Blogging the Smart Way from you in pdf format? (I do not have a Kindle or Nook).

  • Kuratur

    Yep, I had the same question…

  • Gabrielle Mazur

    Love the infographic! I never thought of the 70-100 character limit if you want to be retweeted. Great info!

    Like a couple of others have mentioned Jeff, I’d be nervous about asking for a Retweet. It seems a little desperate but as the infographic suggests, it does seem to be effective.

    It’s no different from me asking people to comment at the end of a blog post, I guess.

    • http://jeffbullas.com Jeff Bullas

      Yes, the numbers don’t appear to lie regarding asking for a ReTweet. I have seen it highlighted in other studies as well. Like you, I don’t like asking for a RT!

    Hi Jeff,

    I have +3,500 followers on Twitter and I would never ask for a retweet. I think it’s a bit cheesy.

    • http://jeffbullas.com Jeff Bullas

      Yes, I don’t ask but it is an individual thing

    • Sunshinegirl

      I suppose it could be in how you ask, but I’m also a bit hesitant at times.

    Asking for the Please Retweet is like the call of action in the message. This also reminds the reader to share it with their friends and family. ~Madeline
