In major developments for the big platform, Twitter has finally started rolling out the ability to schedule tweets natively from its web app a feature that many have been calling for.
While composing a tweet, one would see a little calendar icon on the bottom row of icons at the bottom of the compose window. Click that and one can specify when the user wants his tweet to be sent.
Twitter had been experimenting with the feature back in November. Now it seems the company is rolling the scheduling feature to all users something that is definitely going to excite many.
For many users and particularly the Digital Marketing people, they have had to rely on Tweetdeck to schedule and a host of other third-party platforms like Zoho Social, Buffer among many others.
What Else has Twitter introduced for its users?
“Not quite ready to send that Tweet? Now on twitter.com you can save it as a draft or schedule it to send at a specific time –– all from the Tweet composer,” the company tweeted.
Twitter has also added a new way to save draft tweets.
To do so, just tap on the ‘X’ button in the top left corner of the tweet composer and then select the Save button. To access saved tweets, open the compose box, and select the Drafts option at the top.
The company also introduced descriptions that will be added onto images which could prove vital for users so that they don’t have to use up their characters describing what was happening.
The new feature comes just a week after the social media company announced that users can now choose who will be able to reply to their tweets and this was received greatly by many of the users.
With now the schedule button, many users will be able to publish their tweets at the time that they feel they want them to go out to the public.
The feature is currently not yet available on mobile applications and thus can only be found and accessed on the web platform.
