Twitter officially announced that users can able to schedule tweets by web version on Twitter. Scheduling tweets were only available with TweetDeck or other third-party tools, now Twitter offers this feature on its own platform. Twitter starts experimenting with this feature last November itself and it is now available to all Twitter users. This feature is very helpful for business and professionals to tweet regularly and increase twitter followers.
While using Twitter in a web browser, users will now see an option to schedule a tweet from the composer screen.
This new feature lets users schedule a tweet for any time you’d like, as long as it’s within the next 18 months. The pop-up window includes the time zone that you used, so you can more easily understand when the tweet will be published. Here you can also see a list of scheduled tweets, which helps plan to schedule multiple tweets.
How to Schedule a Tweet on Twitter’s Website
- First, open the twitter on the web and compose your tweet.
- Then, click the calendar icon, instead of hitting send.
- Once you clicked it shows the date and time, now you choose when you want to post this tweet.
From this window, you can also view a list of all scheduled tweets and make adjustments if needed.
Save Drafts on Twitter
Along with the scheduled tweets feature, there is also another new feature announced on the Twitter website, which is users can able to save tweet drafts. Recently, the social network made that inline composer retains its text as it if the user navigates to other parts of the website and it only saved the text as long as you stayed on Twitter. But now, you can draft tweets and resume them later. The positive thing about this feature is, Twitter users can take time and post a thoughtful tweet that is sending out to the world.
Before this feature when you click out of the pop-up tweet composer area, the website would usually ask if you want to discard the current tweet or finish it. Now, the pop-up question has been reworded as “Discard” or “Save”. If you’re familiar with saving drafts on the Twitter mobile app – it works the same way on the web version.
However, Twitter users must keep in mind that schedule tweet feature only available on the web platform and the drafts saved on the web app will only be available on the web app platform, while the drafts saved on the mobile app will only be available there, as the feature is yet to be integrated among the platforms.
