Cornell Twitter User Study: Gold Nugget (part 2 of 2)
GOLD NUGGET: The awesome section!
To make this more of an effective study Cornell University developed a “free” tool to help them decipher when people were posting certain words during the week (time & day). DID YOU READ THAT?! This tool helps give you a report of when people are tweeting, engaging with certain topics.
So what? If I am a Pizza company (we will just say Papa John’s for argument sake), I can search when people are mentioning the keyword: “pizza” and that is when I engage. I did a search and here are my results:
Fridays and Saturdays from 4:30pm to 9:30pm would be the peak times for Papa John’s to send out a full on blast of coupons etc. Even Sundays during the same time would be relatively effective. Even a follow and RT would be efficient for initial engagement.
So what does this mean for businesses? How can you see using this kind of a tool?
