Tweriod: This software allows you to identify key times to connect with people and when your tweets as well as your followers tweets reach the most people. I like 9:00am PST and 12:00pm PST, that has always been pretty good to me on social media. Neetzan Zimmerman also finds that on the east coast, just before 9:00am and around 12:00pm tend to be the best times for his posts to go Social Viral.

Hootsuite: One of the Godfather, Original Gangsta “O.G.” Social Media Automation Tools.
