Scheduling Tweets: How to do it for free and like a pro11 min read

When this article was first posted, Twitter was experimenting with letting users schedule tweets on their Web app. I was lucky enough to be part of that experiment,  but like most people, you likely were not.

Having a great way to schedule tweets, share your thoughts, and get your brand’s message out there is vital to growing an online presence. It’s something you should be invested in and, luckily for you, there are several great alternatives to Twitter for you to consider!

In this article, we are going to explore two ways to schedule tweets so as to promote your Twitter account and conquer that almighty time suck that is writing tweets!

Options for Tweet scheduling


TweetDeck is the official Twitter app designed to help you share your tweets a bit more easily. It gives you command over many different timelines and lets you set it all up in whatever way works best for you.

A tweet scheduler should give you a moment’s rest from your Twitter feed, but with TweetDeck, that doesn’t quite happen. In fact, the app is just one more way to spend time on Twitter! You still need to log in often in order to plan your tweets for the next few days, which doesn’t end up helping all that much.

After all, TweetDeck is designed by Twitter, who is logically interested in keeping you logged on for as long as possible. Still, that makes TweetDeck slightly counter-intuitive.


Hypefury‘s very purpose, unlike TweetDeck, is to make your Twitter experience as rewarding as possible.

Hypefury has no interest in you staying on the platform longer than you need to. Instead, it aims to boost your productivity, help you get more engagement, or size up your Twitter real estate.

You can sign up for a free trial of Hypefury’s functionalities here or at the bottom of this page. Give it a try, you won’t regret it!

Now let’s see exactly how these two options work.

Scheduling tweets with Tweetdeck

Scheduling tweets is generally a pretty straightforward experience.

With TweetDeck, you begin by heading over to their website, or downloading the Windows app (unfortunately, it is no longer available as an app for Mac).

Once you’ve gone through the very straightforward app setup, you log in using your credentials and just like that, you are ready to schedule tweets!

Here’s how you get it done.

  1. Click on the + sign on the top left to open the dialog box to create a new tweet.

2. Compose your tweet.

3. Click the Schedule button and select a time and date for your post.

4. Click on the “tweet at 2023” button to finish scheduling your tweet.

5. Once the tweet is scheduled, TweetDeck will create a new window allowing you to view your scheduled posts.

And that’s it!

It’s that simple to schedule tweets on TweetDeck, and it’s all completely free.

Scheduling quote tweets with TweetDeck

One pretty neat trick that TweetDeck has to offer is the quote tweet function. It’s pretty cool if you come across a tweet you’d like to comment on, but also want to share it with your audience to maximize your benefit!

The quote tweet option will let you retweet the original post but also give you the option to select when that retweet will be shared, and with what accompanying text.

The drawbacks of TweetDeck

Besides being designed to have you spend as much time as possible on Twitter, there are a few other issues with TweetDeck that are worth mentioning. For starters, while the ability to schedule tweets in advance is a helpful feature, it’s surprising that TweetDeck doesn’t offer the ability to schedule threads. It’s frustrating for users who want to share a series of tweets on a particular topic, as they have to schedule each tweet individually. This can be time-consuming and tedious, which makes it less likely that users will take advantage of the scheduling feature altogether.

Another issue worth noting is that if you want your tweets to get more engagement, it’s important to keep them in circulation, especially given Twitter’s algorithm. One way to do this is by scheduling automatic retweets or scheduling retweets of your own content. Unfortunately, TweetDeck doesn’t allow you to do this. This means that users who want to boost their account’s visibility and engagement will have to manually retweet their own content, which can be time-consuming and inefficient.

TweetDeck won’t let you automatically retweet content or schedule retweets for your content, and in our books, that’s a real shame!

Can you schedule tweets on mobile with TweetDeck?

With TweetDeck, you simply can’t schedule tweets from your mobile. TweetDeck isn’t available on mobile and neither can you schedule tweets in the native Twitter app.

This is where Hypefury comes in again: with Hypefury, you can schedule tweets AND threads on mobile!

But what else can Hypefury do for your Tweet schedule?

What is Hypefury?

Hypefury is exactly what it sounds like: a lot of energy, hype and impact for your Twitter account!

If you’re serious about Twitter, then Hypefury is where you want to be pumping out your content from.

We all understand that most people are on Twitter to consume content. If you’re a content creator, however, you have to be able to take advantage of all these likes, comments and retweets people have to give!

Hypefury helps you get your content where the engagement is. That could be just pure brand awareness and account growth or it can be part of the larger picture, including your sales, signups and leads.

Twitter can be a lot more than just a time-consuming necessity. With the right tool, it can become quite a lucrative opportunity! We help you level up your Twitter game so that running your account is a whole lot more fun, productive and profitable.

Using Hypefury: countless possibilities

Getting started with Hypefury is super easy – all you need to do is sign up for an account and you’ll be good to go. You could even get started scheduling tweets by setting up a free trial and exploring what you can expect from the paid plan!

Once you’ve logged in with your Twitter details, you’ll land on the dashboard where you can immediately start churning out that premium content your followers will love.

Its straightforward user interface makes Hypefury one of the best (if not the best) schedulers you’ll ever come across.

Personally, I like to use Hypefury in dark mode simply because the steely black and blue gets me in the mood to drum out tweets, but you can choose to go for the cool and clean white if that’s what gets your gears turning! You can easily choose whichever mode you are in the mood for by going to your settings.

Here is how the magic happens:

  1. Click on “What would you like to share?”

2. The composer will pop up allowing you to create a post.

3. Once you’ve created your post, you can select a time and date at which to share it.

And there you have it! Scheduling your tweets really couldn’t get any easier than that.

Once you’ve got your time locked in, scroll to the bottom of the composer and choose whether you want to post directly to Twitter, save the post to your drafts, or add it to your queue of tweets.

You can also choose to schedule tweets from the drafts tab by clicking on “Compose a Draft” and creating your post. Once you’re done, you can just save the draft for later or add it to your queue of tweets ready for posting.

You also get the option to share your post to your Instagram using the Insta-shot feature.

Unlike most other schedulers, Hypefury lets you choose if you want your tweets automatically retweeted once they pass your preset engagement thresholds. This will help boost your engagement and it will give your tweets a second life, helping them stay in circulation a lot longer.

You can even choose to add follow-up tweets to your main post, allowing you to sell your products, collect signups, share links and much more once your audience has warmed up to your message.

One more feature that sets Hypefury apart from the rest is its ability to let you schedule threads in a fast and easy way. You just copy whichever text you need to convert into a thread, paste it into the composer, and Hypefury will do the rest!

Your text will be converted into a thread allowing you to schedule and post it just like you would a single Tweet.

After your tweets have been scheduled and posted, you can take your scheduling a level up and mark your best-performing tweets as Evergreen tweets. This will allow us to occasionally retweet your highly engaging or classic content back onto your timeline. Evergreen tweets are proven to increase engagement and they’ll save you from rifling through your tweet library every time you want to share your best content.

Scheduling tweets in bulk with Hypefury

If you’re super Twitter-adept or you’re working with a social media template to constantly put out tweets for your account, then you’ll be happy to know that we also let you schedule tweets in bulk!

Simply download and use our Tweet excel file, create your Tweets bulk, upload the file, and we’ll do the rest. Your tweets will be added to open slots in your scheduling queue and you can just log in to rearrange them should you feel the need. You just have to remember to use 1 cell per tweet and limit them to only the first column.

You can also bulk schedule threads using a CSV upload. Whenever your tweets exceed the 280 limits per cell in the spreadsheet, they will be automatically scheduled as threads making sure your message is shared how you intended it to be.

To upload your CSV file, click on the overflow menu at the end of the “What would you like to share” bar and select “Upload CSV.”

The overflow menu will also give you the options to shuffle your menu, move all the tweets in your queue to the top, and you can also use it to clear up your queue for some new content.
