Twitter for Android App Icon Logo

With Twitter now letting users schedule tweets from Twitter itself, the need to get a third-party tool or plugin or even pay for a service for scheduling tweets is now way down to about zero. Though there are good and useful Twitter apps, with the main site finally adding scheduling you don’t need to do anything extra.

So, how do you schedule tweets on Twitter? It only takes a few steps! Kust make sure you have an account and all your login details on hand, because this won’t take long!

Here’s a quick guide to scheduling tweets via Twitter app:

  1. Open the Twitter app on your phone on Android or iOS, and make sure you are logged in to the right account.
  2. Type in your tweet and add any media like image, video, gifs, emojis, or create a poll, just as you normally would for any tweet.
