With Twitter now letting users schedule tweets from the website itself, the need to get a third-party tool or plugin or even pay for a tweet scheduling service is a thing of the past. There are still helpful Twitter apps, but the overall process has become far more accessible in recent years.

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

How to schedule tweets via the Twitter app:

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