3 Awesome Ways to Schedule Your Twitter Updates

Through its power to connect people on a massive level – Twitter has essentially become the center of the online universe. If it were an atom, it would be the nucleus. If it were a town, it would be Main Street. Basically, it’s a central communications hub for people all over the world. And ever since Twitter made it easier to share content on a colossal scale – by syncing up with other websites – it’s become more popular than ever.

Probably the most appreciated feature of Twitter is its simple and uncomplicated set-up. While the trackers are complex, and system impressive – the design is purposefully minimalist. While this does have its advantages in most cases, it can sometimes leave things wanting. When these occasions arise, developers will create third party applications to fill the void. Twitter status schedulers are a good example of this.

There are quite a few of these out there. But the three listed below are the ones that I, and many others I know, prefer above any others.

FutureTweets

If you’re looking for something that’s simple to operate - FutureTweets is about as easy to use as it gets. It has an area to put in the status you want to use, a calendar to set your date, and a clock to set your time. It is all done through connecting to your Twitter account, and leave it in waiting for you. You can set as many posts as you’d like at any time. You can even schedule multiple ones at the same time. You can also set items a decent amount of time into the future. This is a helpful feature to have if you have a habit of forgetting special events that you’d like to commemorate with a Tweet.

TwAitter

TwAitter is quite simply awesome. It’s more feature heavy than FutureTweets, while still being a piece of cake to use. It allows you to post in Facebook in addition to Twitter. Even better – it offers spellcheck (which some people on the net desperately need), a link feature, and a translator. That’s right – you can broaden your potential global audience by having your tweets translated into another language right in your status bar.

LaterBro

LaterBro combines a few of the useful features of FutureTweets and TwAitter. Similar to TwAitter you can post really quickly on LaterBro. It also allows for Facebook posts with the added advantage of simultaneous posts added to both Facebook and Twitter at the same time. You can also schedule posts much farther in the future than FutureTweets, which can be quite beneficial – especially if you use social media marketing for a business.

So Many More

Obviously, there are dozens of these types of applications all over the web. Tweetdeck, CoTweet and Hootsuite are just a few of the multipurpose ones I could name. But having never used these three personally, or any others, I thought it best to leave them out.

Have you used them? Are there any others that you would recommend? What features do they offer that make them better than the three mentioned in this post?  Leave us your comments!

 

When this occurs, developers will create third party applications to fill the void. A good example is Twitter status schedulers.

  1. I use HootSuite and love it. Except for yesterday when their servers were down pretty much all day. :( I’ve never tried any of the ones above, but I’m constantly getting asked what programs I like for managing and scheduling Tweets, so I’m going to check this out! Thanks for posting!

  2. I think a lot of people underestimate how much time it takes to be really actively involved in social media. But if you want to do it right, you have to always be pushing content. These tools are a great way to stay connected with your audience, even when you can’t be sitting at your computer. They can work 24 hours a day, even if you can’t!

  3. I like the multi-purpose Hootsuite because I only schedule a few tweets at a time. If one was wanting to set up lots of tweets and, weeks in advance, then one of the above tools or, Social Oomph look much better.

    I have used a useful little tool called “Create a Timely” recently. This tool analyses one’ twitter stream and proposes the time of day where one’s “audience” is most likely to be receptive…neat.

  4. I still like Hootsuite. I can submit tweets for anytime in future through twitter accoounts, Facebook, LinkedIn etc plus the app for both iphone and ipad makes it easy for me to handle the accounts.

  5. I used to use Hootsuite, but have had nothing but trouble. I use Twaitter/Gremln now for everything. Its a great alternative to Hootsuite.

  6. I know plenty of people who swear by Tweetdeck. Whichever service you use to schedule Tweets in advance, having a well-thought-out social media schedule in addition to your other marketing efforts can be a great way to stay engaged with your audience.

  7. I love HootSuite as well as love it. I have also used SocialOomph – which is another fantastic tool!

    I love to schedule certain tweets during the day – however I think it’s important to also check in every now and again (if you’re time poor like many entrepreneurs/business owners) and remember to connect and engage with others. Relationships and engagement is so important and certainly worth investing your time in.

    Great post Ann!

  11. Oh, Thanks for sharing these services. I think this might be a great option. I will go ahead and check out of those that you have listed.

  12. I use socialoomph and it’s great. It helped me a lot since forever and I don’t remember thinking anything awful about their features. But since you mentioned these three, I think I’ll give it a check sometime soon. Cheers! :)

  13. Twitter is designed to use the SMS (Short Message Service) to send out is updates, and for the majority of SMS systems, the characters are limited to 160.
