That’s right, like Facebook, the go-to micro-blogging site also lets you schedule Tweets from its platform.

However, this is only possible from the desktop or browser version, not from the mobile app. Something that limits your options compared to other tools.

So, how to schedule Tweets with Twitter:

  • Open the desktop version of Twitter and tap ‘Compose Tweet’.
  • Write the Tweet content and add any media. 
  • To schedule , tap the calendar icon just below the Compose box.
  • Choose the date and time you’d like it to go live and tap ‘Confirm’.
  • Twitter will takes you back to the Tweet compose box: click ‘Schedule‘ and you’re all set.

Schedule on the Twitter platform itself.

Tweetdeck is one of the most popular tools to schedule Tweets. You’ll recognize it because of its design in ‘Columns’.

From this app you can manage everything happening on the Twitter account you’ve added to Tweetdeck and you can organize these columns to your liking: see the timeline, see your profile to control the Tweets you post, private messages, and interactions.

You sort it by what you need, and you can change it whenever you want.

How to schedule Tweets on Tweetdeck:

  • Go to the Tweetdeck home page and click ‘New Tweet’. It’s the first button on the top left, and looks identical to the one on Twitter itself. 
  • Choose the account you’d like to tweet to among the accounts you’re logged in to. 
  • Compose the Tweet with all the add-ons you need.
  • Once you’re happy with it, click ‘Schedule Tweet’ and choose the date and time. 
  • Tap on ‘Tweet’ under the Compose box, which will show the date and time you chose earlier, and it’s done!

✅ Schedule on a similar platform to Twitter and on several other social networks. 

Organize your accounts into columns based on what you want to see first.


Metricool is the Swiss army knife of Tweet-scheduling tools. It has all the features to plan your Tweets as if you were inside Twitter itself. You can even schedule threads of up to 80 Tweets

You also have the option to add hashtags, images, videos, and emojis. The icing on the cake is the option to tag other users, since other tools don’t allow you to tag people on scheduled Tweets.
