How to Schedule Tweets on Twitter

Twitter is a very powerful tool that you can use to promote your products, services and articles. Thus, it would be a great advantage for you to learn how to schedule your tweets on Twitter. By doing so, you will be able to update your followers at any given minute or hour.

Imagine this scenario. You have to regularly promote your articles to your followers on Twitter. However, you lack the time to do so because of a certain reason such as work or chores. And by the time that you are done with your work, you realize that you do not have enough time to post all your tweets. This kind of ‘dilemma’ is very common especially to freelance writers and internet marketers. Thus, if you want to efficiently manage your time without compromising your work, better learn how to schedule your tweets.

There are lots of tools that you can use to schedule your Twitter tweets. Some of them would require you to pay for a monthly subscription fee. But if you are still starting out, you can always opt for those that you can use for free. Take for example, GrabInbox or Gremln. These tools are very useful for you can create your own list of recurring tweets.

Via Gremln

Gremln, formerly known as Twaitter, is a type of professional social media tool. You can use it for free but with limits. A user with free account can only schedule up to five tweets per hour. But if you want to upgrade your account to premium, you will be granted with the ability to schedule unlimited tweets regardless of the hour. To schedule your tweets via Gremln, you will need to register and log-in using your Twitter, Facebook or LinkedIn credentials. After which, you will need to add or configure your default Twitter account. Once done, you will be able to schedule your tweets by going to Tools > Messages. Set a desired date as to when you would like your tweet to appear on your Twitter timeline. If you opt to have a recurring tweet, just click on the appropriate option then set the time interval to daily, weekly or monthly. The process is so easy and you can even edit or delete the ones that you have already placed on your queue list.

Via GrabInbox

As for those who would prefer to use the GrabInbox Twitter Message Scheduler, the process is pretty similar to Gremln. But with GrabInbox, your options are limited for recurring tweets. You can only schedule a tweet within the tool’s specified time intervals. You can also upload a text file with bulk posts per line. Apparently, the text file method is the easiest way to create and manage your scheduled tweets on GrabInbox. All that you need to do is to compile your tweets in a text file, upload it then click the option for scheduled tweets. You can later adjust the time interval by editing each tweet.

Just don’t hesitate to explore the features of each tool and for sure, you will no longer need to worry about tweeting on Twitter.

Great tips! Thanks for sharing..

Great article.  Very useful information. Thanks

Thank you too ViLuz and Norlaw. Aside from GrabInbox and Gremln, you can also make use of Buffer.

thanks, I also use Gremlin and I recently subscribed to auto followers but I noticed that if we subscribe to auto followers, we get some people whom we would not prefer to be there also.

I actually thought this article is about scheduling tweets "on Twitter" and not scheduling tweets "on other websites." I think I was misled by the title.

@deepa, I haven't tried auto followers but thanks for mentioning. I'm going to check it out as well.

@Richie - the title speaks for itself... tools such as Gremln or GrabInbox will allow you to schedule tweets on Twitter. 

Very cool tools to try, thanks dear Kent.
