2 Simple Ways To Schedule Tweets

Apr 8, 2023 8 min read

Manual posting often results in inconsistency with a high probability of misses and errors. Thankfully, scheduling tweets in advance helps you avoid these without needing to be active around the clock.

In this blog, we'll walk you through two easy methods to schedule tweets using either the native scheduler or third-party social media scheduling apps to help you automate your entire scheduling pipeline on Twitter.

How To Schedule Tweets From X (Twitter)

Scheduling tweets directly from X (Twitter's) platform has become convenient, allowing users to plan and automate their content delivery. Here's how you can schedule tweets on Twitter in advance:

  • Open to the X (Twitter) website.
  • Click on the tweet post button.


  • Write your copy, set your audience, add media and hashtags.


  • Click on the “calendar icon” you see below the text box.
  • Choose the “date and time” you want your tweet to be published.


  • Click on "Confirm" and then “Schedule.”

You can view your scheduled tweets on Twitter (X). Just click the “Tweet” button and shift between “Unsent Tweets” or the “Scheduled tab” to edit or delete any scheduled Tweets to have full control over your upcoming posts.

Note: As of now, there is no option to schedule tweets on mobile devices using the Twitter app. However, you can do the same either by navigating to the Twitter (X) website version on your mobile or with social media management tools to maintain a consistent online presence.
