Tweeting is one of the best ways to share content online and drive traffic to your website or blog. But when is the best time to post your tweet and attract the most click-throughs and user engagement?

A recent study has been carried out by Bitly (the URL shortener service that condenses all those web addresses to fit into our 140 character tweets) to find out when tweets and Facebook updates are generally the most effective. According to Bitly’s data, the best times to tweet for click-throughs are early afternoon, Monday to Thursday; whereas Facebook content posted on a Wednesday around 3pm tends to generate the highest click-through rates.

The results have been used by design agency, Raka Creative to put together the below infographic as a guideline for how we can get the most out of our content by timing our tweets and Facebook updates.
