How to schedule a tweet on Twitter

Perhaps one of the most underused features of Twitter is the ability to schedule a tweet, and we’ll show you how to do that today. This is a really useful feature because you can set tweets to send in the future. It’s perfect for all kinds of things. Like tweeting while on vacation without opening your phone.

Unfortunately, it looks like Twitter has removed this feature from the Twitter mobile apps (for iOS and Android) so you can only do it from the Twitter website and a few other third-party apps. Tweetdeck is the one that supports it, and has been for many years. So keep that in mind here when we look at how to schedule a tweet on Twitter.

How to schedule a Tweet on the Twitter website

First, head to the Twitter website.

Then type your new tweet in the compose box as usual.

Now tap on the icon which looks like a calendar and a clock. This will be the fifth icon from the right.

From here you can select the date and time as well as the time zone to send your tweet. The time zone is a really useful tip.

Now tap on Confirm in the top right corner. Make sure the tweet is set for the future, otherwise you won’t be able to schedule it.

Once you tap Confirm, the Tweet button changes to Schedule. Tap on it.

Now your tweet will go out on the specified date and time. And that’s all there is to it.

You can go back and edit the tweet because it hasn’t been sent yet. Just repeat the above steps and when you get to the schedule part, tap “Schedule Tweets” at the bottom. This will take you to your scheduled and drafts tweets. And you can edit them from there.
