Facebook will tell us when most of our page followers are online, to plan our posts accordingly. Twitter, however, won't bother providing us with this crucial information for our followers. Luckily, a free service can point out the best time to tweet during the day.

Sign up to Tweriod
Let's get this out of the way: Tweriod sounds awful. It's a portmanteau of "Tweet" and "Period", which kinda makes sense. But the result is a word we never want to speak aloud or hear, not even in our heads.
That said, their service is excellent for finding the best time to tweet, so we can overlook the name.
To create an account, we just need to visit http://www.tweriod.com/ and click on the "Sign Up With Twitter" button.
Of course, we must authorize Tweriod to use our Twitter account.
After that, we provide our name and email address, to get started. It is optional to join their newsletter, but it is mandatory to follow their account on Twitter, the checkbox won't uncheck.
Once we get started, Tweriod begins analyzing our account and our followers. The free version will analyze the last 1000 followers, which makes it ideal for a new account.
The Tweriod analysis
For the example, on an account with at least 1000 followers, the analysis took about an hour.
Visiting the link, we need to click the "My Analysis" button to get the analysis.
The free account will also only allow one analysis per month for the same Twitter account.
At the analysis screen, we will see the peak times for Weekends, Sundays, Mondays, and Weekdays.
By selecting the Hourly Graphs, we get a better insight of our followers' online presence, which will help us find the best time to tweet.
The @replies is also useful, to notice at which times we are getting more retweets, or getting mentioned in general.
Buffer is an excellent service for planning our social media posts, and Tweriod can export its findings on Buffer.
Clicking on "Sync BufferApp schedule", we first need to authorize Tweriod to access our Buffer account...
...and then our Twitter schedule gets filled-in with the best times to tweet, according to the analysis.
Of course, if we don't intend to post five times a day, we can remove some times from Buffer, by moving the cursor on the clock and clicking X.
Tweriod gives us a choice on how to take advantage of their premium service. We can either pay an Ad hoc, one-off report or get a monthly subscription at about the 80% of the price.
