Twitter is one of the most popular social media channels through which business owners share information and make announcements to their followers.
But sometimes, having to come back every so often to repost a tweet announcement or share links can be inconvenient, especially if you have other things to attend to.
Well, you have the option to choose to post your announcement every 5 minutes while you’re still online or flood the timeline by posting dozens of links in one go, but that would be considered spamming. And you don’t want to be called a spammer. That’s definitely a no-no.
Not to worry, though, because there are 3rd party apps that allow for future tweet posting. I’ve been using it for quite some time now and might I say that it really comes in handy at times when I’ve got lots of deadlines to meet.
Well, let’s not delay it any further, shall we? Here are some options that you might want to consider using:
HootSuite – This is what I’m currently using at the moment. What I like about this is the fact that you can manage future posts with multiple accounts on this one. And, you can get an email confirmation when the scheduled tweet has been posted.
Twuffer – This 3rd party app is good for posting pre-written announcements in Twitter. It’s also a great tool to use if you want to run time-based contests.
FutureTweets – Yet another third party app for schedule tweet posting. It used to be able to send recurring announcement tweets, but because it was a violation of Twitter’s ToA, they had to stop that. But with this app, you can also save tweets for future posting on dates our hours that you specify.
TwitResponse – Third on my list, this 3rd party app allows for an unlimited amount of schedule tweets. The interface is good and easy to navigate and you can even go back to edit and delete queued tweets.
Tweet-U-Later – If you can’t access the 3rd party site, you can still send future posts via email with Tweet-U-Later. Another good thing about this is that you can even schedule direct messages to be posted on later dates.
Well, these are the ones I’ve tried out so far and liked the way they work. What 3rd party scheduled tweet posting application have you used? Care to share your experience?
