How to Schedule Tweets – New Twitter Scheduling Feature

When it comes to reachability on the web, Twitter always takes the cake. I have personally experienced it. I use a multitude of social media platforms. Always I have noticed Twitter posts are easily reachable to a wider set of audience. You just open Twitter, type a few sentences, a few hashtags, and done. To further expand the presence of a tweet there is also the Twitter Scheduling Feature.

As the name suggests, a user can schedule his tweets for the future. If you want to put up a Tweet for some future occasion, then you can compose it an schedule it.  Earlier this was only available for the business accounts of Twitter. Now it is also available for the Twitter web version.

However, the web version of the app the feature is entirely free to use.
