How To Schedule Future Tweets with Taweet

   How To Schedule Future Tweets with TaweetAs a user of Twitter, I’ve written several articles about tools that help me use it more productively. Hootsuite helps me manage the many people I follow without being overwhelmed.  TweetFunnel helps if you have more than one user tweeting but one brand to keep.

Enter Taweet.  Learn how to schedule future tweets!

There are a few tools I’ve come across that allow you to schedule posts for the future. Taweet is here to hopefully change the way we think about Twitter and tweeting from “thinking about the past” to “what’s going on in the future.” Twitter asks “What are you doing?” Taweet asks “What are you doing IN THE FUTURE?”

Taweet, as you can probably tell, majors on the art of the future tweet.  It allows for, amongst other things, talking about what’s going to happen, such as events or plans.

Taweet actually offers several perks that can enhance your Twittering: tweet scheduling, threaded discussions, AND multiple account management. Let’s see what these are all about!

This is where threaded comments come in. I for one like the idea of having the comments threaded directly beneath my tweet so I can get a handle on the conversation. Taweet does this for you and the result is something similar to what Facebook does with its updates and comments.

i’m a little confused. does this automatically post your Tweets at a scheduled time (say at 6:30 pm) or is this just something that says, “(6:30) I will be going to the gym.” If that’s the case, why wouldn’t I just saying “Going to the gym at 6:30″ directly from my normal Twitter client and look at my @ replies like I already do.

According to the introduction video there’s supposed to be a post at the scheduled time also.
