You Can Now Schedule Tweets on Twitter, but Should You?

Schedule Tweets on Twitter

You can now schedule tweets on Twitter but with 2,400 tweets available per day how many should you pump out daily?

Twitter does not come out and tell you their limit per hour on tweets but there is one.

If you do go over the tweeting limit; Twitter will send out an error message. Then, you will be allowed to try again later. At least Twitter doesn’t suspend us for this one, yet!

My answer to how many tweet should you pump out in an hour is it depends on your Twitter account. It varies on how many followers you have and what industry you are in. But one thing I can tell you for sure, just tweeting once a day will not cut it on the Twitter network!

The last stats I’ve seen is that there are 500 million tweet sent out per day.  Yes, 500 MILLION tweets in one day.

So, should you schedule your tweets with the new Twitter Media Studio now?

If you do go over the tweeting limit; Twitter will send out an error message. Then, you will be allowed to try again later. #Twittertips Click To Tweet

Twitter Media Studio

So, recently Twitter opened up the Media Studio and allowed us to schedule tweets right from their dashboard on desktop.

I could not wait to try this out as Facebook and Instagram allow this with their creator studio.

But I was a little disappointed when I found out we could not use emoji’s in our tweets ☹

Emjoi’s are one of those things that can really help your tweets be seen more in the Twitterfeed. They show your expressions on a topic or about a blog post.

Of course, I continued to play around with it and after some time decided I’ll be sticking with my Agorapulse for scheduling tweets.

If you want to know how to time out your tweets there do watch this video. I made it on how to use the Twitter Media Studio to manage your tweets on Twitter after being on a Twitter chat a few weeks ago.

People on the Twitter chat were asking how to use the Twitter media studio for planning out their tweets.

When You Could Schedule Your Tweets on Twitter

If you are a one-person account on Twitter it may be something you can use to help you not tweet out all your important tweets at once.

But there is one other tidbit. It’s called media studio because it’s where your media is stored. Media is images, video, etc. So, you must have used this before otherwise you will have to upload your images. I’ve found it’s a little clunky at this point to schedule your tweets right on Twitter.

What Else Can You Do with The Twitter Media Studio?

It’s great for living streaming! Those of you that use periscope and other living streaming on Twitter will find this helpful.

You will be able to schedule them out. (Just like those of you that use Facebook and do a premiere video.).

What Other Tools Can You Use to Time Your Tweets?

If you have been following me for a long time here at Inspire To Thrive you know I love and use Agorapulse. But there are other options for scheduling your tweets out.

One option I recommend for a small business or one-person account is The Buffer. I believe the Buffer still offers a limited FREE account.

Other scheduling tools include Later – highly recommend by Katie Lane and looks easy to use. Hootsuite is probably one of the oldest around but I never liked it’s dashboard.

Loomly and Zoho are advertising their tools on Google today.  Sprout Social is another tool I often hear about.

The Buffer was my favorite social media scheduling tool until Agorapulse came along.

Agorapulse has great reports and other options on their dashboard to find Twitter influencers and more. I had to make the switch!

Your Turn

So I would love to know if you schedule tweets on Twitter with their media studio or if you are using any social media tools.

Let’s discuss in the comments below 🙂

    • Hi Samuel, welcome to Inspire To Thrive. I’m glad I was able to show you how to use the Twitter Media Studio to schedule your tweets 🙂 I do have many posts here about blogging as well. Have a great day and thanks for coming by Samuel!

  • Awesome post Lisa.

    Great to know I can schedule my tweets on Twitter now.
    This would be awesome for me and I get the chance to focus on publishing awesome content on my blog.

    Thanks a lot for sharing

    • Hi Eniola, welcome to Inspire To Thrive. You are most welcome. Have you been scheduling your tweets before with any tool? I’d love to know what you think after trying it. Thanks for coming by and have a great day!

  • Great news thanks for sharing it with us all. This feature will definitely automate things on twitter posts similar to other social media platforms and make it a lot easier to post in various different scenarios. Good work keep sharing such amazing news with us from time to time.

    • Hi Mount, welcome to Inspire To Thrive. It sure can help! But I do not like that they do not offer emoji’s. That is why I’m sticking with Agorapulse for scheduling my social media posts out. Thanks for coming by and have a great weekend.

      • Being your regular reader and the way you portray content is amazing. Agorapulse is new for us, we tried buffer till now but definitely test Agorapulse. Thanks for the recommendation.

  • Super option to have Lisa. For me, scheduling tweets usually feels heavy. I have more fun engaging and tweeting in real time. But this may change as I get busier. I will always engage but scheduling a few tweets may be smart for me.

    Ryan

    • Hi Ryan, I do both as you know. I love using Agorapulse to schedule and sometimes even engage from. Other times, I’m right there live on Twitter mostly from mobile but sometimes desktop too. I’d love to know what you think of the Twitter Media Studio Ryan once you try it out. Have a great weekend 🙂

    • Hi Martin, scheduling them out keeps me organized and saves time. I not only schedule my own but for others too 🙂 I’d love to know what you think of the Twitter media studio once you do check it out. Have a great weekend!

  • Hi Lisa!
    My favorite thing about Twitter Media Studio that we can see the best times to Tweet if we have over 1,000 followers – and we can share media with other accounts. I use this when I want to pre-schedule tweets from my @AnchorShow or @LiveVideoChamps accounts. I agree, the process is still a little clunky but I hope they simplify it a bit more in the future as more users complain about it. Thanks again for the mention!

    • Hi Ileane, yes, they did expand on that there from their Twitter analytics. I can see all that with my Agorapulse which is another reason I’m sticking with that for Twitter scheduling and reporting. But sharing media with other accounts is pretty cool 🙂 Thanks for sharing about that with us and how you are using it Ileane. I think they will update it in the future. Twitter seems to be doing more updates of late.
      Thanks for coming by and taking the time to comment here Ileane. Have a wonderful Wednesday!

  • Hello Lisa,

    On the other day, someone was asking in a forum that ‘what name triggers when you hear about SEO.’ Now I must say, Lisa comes into my mind when I hear about SMM, especially, the Twitter. The way you bring advanced information about new tools, methods to improve a brand presence is beyond the scapes.

    I had no idea about media studio even though it is from Twitter. Good to know about, will try it out!

    Thanks 🙂

    • Hi Mudassir, aww, thank you for that 🙂
      Most people who use Twitter haven’t used the Media Studio yet. I’m not suggesting you do, but wanted folks to know it’s there. I think it could use some improvements and I’m sticking with Agorapulse as I manage multiple Twitter accounts. Thanks for coming by and for ALL of your shares! Have a great day.

  • Hi Lisa,
    I love how twitter is gradually making more sense business-wise.
    You actually said 500 million tweets per day? that’s a big figure and I am not surprised.

    Twitter is a good marketing tool every business should leverage. As for scheduling tweets, I will try it and see the engagement rate.

    Excellent Lisa.

    Cheers,
    Folajomi

    • Hi Folajomi, Yes, I would agree with that. Their ad platform is getting better too. I am not a fan of scheduling there yet with the lack of emoji’s and it’s a little clunky if you schedule a lot. Thanks for coming by and have a great day!
