With X’s schedule feature, you can now schedule tweets or posts as they are now called. However, considering that you have a daily limit of 2,400 posts, how many should you aim to post each day?
Twitter X doesn’t explicitly state their hourly limit for posts, but there is one in place. If you exceed this limit, X will send an error message and you’ll have to try again later.
Thankfully, X doesn’t suspend accounts for this one.

Ideal Number of Tweet Posts
The ideal number of tweets to post per hour depends on your specific Twitter account. It varies based on factors such as your number of followers and the industry you’re in.
But one thing is certain: posting only once a day won’t suffice on the Twitter X network. Over the years I’ve averaged around 40 posts per day on X.
According to recent statistics, there are a staggering 500 million posts sent out daily. Yes, 500 MILLION post tweets per day. That’s why one post per day will not cut it if you want to be seen on X.
Considering these numbers, should you start scheduling your tweets (posts) using the X Media Studio on desktop?Schedule Tweets like a Pro: a Guide for Twitter X Users Click To Tweet
How To Schedule A Tweet (X Post) On Desktop
Now it is much easier to schedule tweets and retweets from your desktop on X. When I discovered I could do it with re-tweets (reposts) I got excited about it. You can also use emojis and tag others as you schedule the post on X.
However, you still cannot schedule posts on X via your mobile device. I tried on my Android before updating this blog post and there was no way to do it.
Watch the video below to see how easy it is to schedule posts right on your desktop.
Twitter Media Studio
So, a while back Twitter opened up the Media Studio and allowed us to schedule tweets right from their dashboard on the 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 emojis in our tweets back then. Today you can them to your posts on X.
Emojis 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.
😕Some of us struggle to say YES to opportunities.
😬Others struggle to say NO to distractions and commitments.
😅Whatever you struggle with, the cure is PRACTICE!

When You Could Schedule Your Tweets On X
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 first to schedule your tweets right on Twitter. However, today (3 years later) it’s much easier to do on your desktop.
See the screenshot below to see how the schedule posts on X in the studio. Notice they haven’t changed the blue bird yet to X in this area.
What Else Can You Do On The Twitter Media Studio?
It’s great for living streaming. Those of you that use live streaming on Twitter X will find this helpful.
It is under the LIVE section of your X media studio today.
You will be able to schedule them out. (Just like those of you that use Facebook and as you would do a premiere video.)
Lastly, you can also check your X analytics in the studio though they are still in the process of updating their analytic features.
Why LiveStream On X?
Second, live streaming on Twitter X allows for real-time interaction and engagement with viewers, fostering a sense of authenticity and connection.
Third, Twitter X’s live streaming feature offers seamless integration with other Twitter features, such as hashtags and trending topics, amplifying the visibility and discoverability of your content.
Finally, live streaming on Twitter X is incredibly easy and convenient, requiring minimal setup and technical know-how.
What Other Tools To Use To Time Your Tweets Out?
If you have been following me for a long time here at Inspire To Thrive you know I have used Agorapulse.
But there are other options for scheduling your tweets out. Today I love MissingLettr for sharing blog posts to Twitter. They mix the posts up for your with different graphics and verbiage. You can try it for free for a limited time.
One option I recommend for a small business or one-person account is The Buffer. The Buffer still offers a limited FREE account which I use for one of my X accounts today.
However, there are many other scheduling tools out there than ever before although most do charge more since the AP changes over on X. It costs for the companies to use the X API so they have to pass on that expense to everyone to stay in business.
Your Turn: Scheduling Tweets Like An X Pro
