As of today, there has been an interesting update coming from Tweet publishing Tool Buffer. The app was reviewed here on SEJ a few months ago. It allows you to add tweets to your Buffer which are then posted at conveniently spread out intervals throughout the day. So you can add a lot of tweets in one sitting without drowning your followers in a flood of tweets.
One of the pitfalls mentioned by readers was the lack of a fully fledged Firefox plugin they could use to Buffer tweets from anywhere on the web.
The new add-on boasts a set of interesting features, which are already available for the equivalent Chrome extension and Safari extension.
- You can Buffer tweets from any webpage by clicking the Buffer icon
- You can Buffer Retweets from inside Twitter.com
- Use the keyboard shortcut “ctrl+alt+b” to bring up the Buffer Box
- Highlight some text on a page and then click the Buffer Button to make it into a Tweet
The recent feature add-ons with Buffer make for an even simpler sharing experience. Co-Founder Leo Widrich stated that “It is our goal to make genuine, optimised sharing on Twitter from anywhere on the web even simpler. The creation of the Firefox add-on is hopefully a big step towards sharing from no matter where you are online”.
