Ever had a time sensitive tweet that you knew you weren’t going to be around to send? TweetDeck has you covered! TweetDeck has a scheduled tweet function capable of posting tweets when you want.
The time field is actually broken up into two parts, hours and and minutes. The hours section uses 24-hour time and is based on your computer’s clock.
Once the time and date are set, click Set Time and forget it.
Some key points about this feature:
You cannot send other tweets while waiting for the scheduled tweet to be submitted.
Your machine must remain on and TweetDeck must remain open.
I have some opinions on automatic tweets, but Kristen Lamb always tells it better, so go check out this post.
