Twitter Adds Tweet Scheduling Function for Advertisers

  |  October 16, 2013   |  Comments

Twitter advertisers now have access to an option allowing them to them to schedule paid advertisement tweets up to a year in advance.

Many marketers use third-party social media dashboards to schedule their tweets ahead of time. But Twitter advertisers may be able to give those tools a rest with Twitter’s new scheduled tweets option. 

"All marketers using Twitter’s Ad Products can schedule organic or Promoted Tweets for specific dates and times up to a year in advance," Twitter said in its announcement. "These can be coordinated to go live with new or existing Promoted Tweet campaigns to enable you to plan your real-time campaigns at your convenience."

Scheduling tweets starts at the advertiser’s account at ads.twitter.com. There, a person can access the option via the "compose tweet" button or within a new "creatives" tab in the top navigation.


When scheduling tweets, the user’s time zone is displayed to guide the process, and tweets can be scheduled a year in advance in increments of one minute.

"Tweets can be delivered organically to followers, or set up to publish as part of a Promoted Tweet campaign where you can select specific targeting criteria to make sure the right users see your message," Twitter said.
