    What do you think if the best amount of posts to make in a day/in a week to make sure you can still attract followers but you also have the highest engagement possible?

    I've been posting 3 or 4 times a day. I want to see what it will be like to post less often but I'm afraid of losing the interest of my followers

    I've been posting 3 - 5 images for a while with a 3 hour delay between the each image.

    I usually do 2 posts a day. Each post will have a time gap of 8-12 hours. I vary these settings every now and then

    I'd imagine posting more would give you more exposure. I currently post between 3 and five times a day but am considering posting 6-8

    common sense criteria

    I think 2 posts per day (3 is ok as well) are perfect

    and at those times they will be up during the most active hours of the day and each will have 6 of the best hours of the day

    I get the most traffic between 5pm to 12am. So I post 1 time in the morning and the rest are posted during that time frame.

    maybe just your own "common" sense, most people are busy at 8:30 am, they just got to school / work or driving to it.

    the most active times on twitter are: 11 am - 1 pm 5-6 pm and 12 pm - according to some studies online.
