So you’re following a bunch of great, insightful people and you’ve just spotted four of their tweets you’d like to retweet to your own followers. You happily click “retweet” four times, fully expecting your followers to continue the retweet chain, and maybe even thank you for sharing such great links and insight.
But alas, such is not the case. You click away from Twitter for a few minutes, and when you click back, not only do you not have any replies or retweets, but you’ve actually lost nine followers!
Retweeting too close together is a problem on Twitter, and one that can quickly annoy your followers. Here’s how to share the tweets you love, without bombarding your followers with a wall of retweets.
Twitter scheduling platform Buffer has just unveiled their newest update, which allows users to schedule tweets and retweets from Twitter.com.
With the new Buffer extension, users will be able to schedule their tweets and those they want to retweet for set times in the future, so they aren’t bombarding their followers with 10 messages in a row (which, trust me, can get really annoying, really fast).
Twitter is all about personalization, accountability, transparency… everything that automation isn’t. Still, there are some cases where automating part of your Twitter account is actually beneficial – as long as you know when and what to automate.
If you haven’t tried Buffer yet, you should. It’s a light-weight, simple tool for scheduling your tweets when your followers will see them, so you get more clicks, retweets and mentions.
And Buffer has just launched its brand new iPhone app, making it even easier for you to pop your tweets into your Buffer and let the magic happen – while you’re on the subway, at a restaurant or in the park.
Buffer is certainly shaping up to be the little Twitter app that could. It offers the simply functionality of scheduling your tweets to go live when they will be seen by the most people, but it does so in a big way.
You can schedule tweets from your browser, smartphone, Twitter.com, email with Buffer, and now they’ve added a partnership with Vienna RSS to the mix to enable you to schedule tweets from within your RSS reader.
The first mobile version of Buffer has hit the Android Market, and it’s a slick product.
Now, you can send updates to Twitter at the times that they’ll see the most impact while you’re on the go from your Android device.
It might seem like the only things that affect the amount you get retweeted are your follower count and what you’re tweeting – but the timing of your tweets is just as important. You might notice that when you tweet at certain times of the day you get more retweets than when you tweet at others, and you’re not alone. Finding the best time to tweet is crucial to reaching the most engaged audience on Twitter – and Timely, a new app from Flowtown, will help you find that time-of-day sweet spot. For free.
