Twitter Tweet Scheduling

Share This Post

For years, Twitter users have relied on third-party apps in order to schedule their tweets. In November last year, Twitter announced that they were testing a tweet scheduling feature and last week it finally became available to all users. For now, the feature is only available on the desktop version of Twitter and is yet to roll out to the iOS and Android apps.

So How Does It Work?

To schedule a tweet from within Twitter, just click the calendar icon at the bottom of the Tweet Composer.

From here, you can choose the day and time you want the tweet to be posted at. Once you’ve clicked the confirm button in the top right corner, you will be taken back to the Tweet Composer. When you’re happy with your tweet, just click the ‘Schedule’ button.

You can also click on the ‘Scheduled Tweets’ button to see any tweets that you have already scheduled. You can also access your scheduled tweets by opening the Tweet Composer and clicking on the ‘Unsent Tweets’ button. Unlike in TweetDeck, you can edit your scheduled tweets before they’re posted. Perfect for if you spot any mistakes that went under the radar.

Twitter have also added the ability to save tweets as drafts on the desktop version. When you click on the X to exit the Tweet Composer, you will be asked if you wish to save the tweet or discard it. Draft tweets can be accessed in the same way as scheduled tweets. Just click on the ‘Unsent Tweets’ button. Saving tweets as drafts is a feature that has long been available on Twitter’s mobile app. Despite this, you can’t access your draft tweets from desktop Twitter in mobile Twitter, and vice versa.

These long-awaited additions to the desktop version of Twitter will make managing your tweets much easier. Hopefully it won’t be long before they are available across all versions of Twitter.
