Scheduling Your Tweets In TweetDeck

Welcome to May, everybody!

Last Monday, we talked about gaining control over and organizing your blog posts by utilizing an editorial calendar. Today, we’re going to talk about being a bit more organized with Twitter. I’m going to show you how to schedule Tweets.

If you haven’t done this before, it will feel both awkward and life-changing! In order to schedule Tweets, you need TweetDeck, Hootsuite, or another Twitter management application. Today, we’re doing TweetDeck only.

How To Schedule Tweets In TweetDeck

Step 1. In TweetDeck, open the Scheduling Window. In the top window where you compose your Tweets, click on the alarm clock icon.

Step 2. An overlay window will appear over your Tweet composition window. Here’s where you can pick the day and the exact time you want your Tweet to be sent out. Simply click on the date area and a calendar will popup, or click the time area to set your time (NOTE: Tweetdeck uses military time, so if you schedule an evening tweet, use this convention). Click Set Time.

Step 3. The overlay window will disappear and where you normally click Send to publish your Tweet, the button now displays at what time and day the Tweet will be sent. Click it to schedule your Tweet:

Step 5. If you start to schedule a lot of Tweets, you’ll forget about when and what you’ve scheduled (trust me). So I keep a column open in TweetDeck that lists all of my scheduled updated. Here’s how you do it. Click on the Add Column button in the upper left corner of TweetDeck.

A popup window will appear with a whole bunch of different choices. Click Core first, then click Scheduled Updates at the bottom of the window.

TweetDeck will open up a column that looks like this, where you can view ALL of your scheduled Tweets in one place.

You can edit a scheduled Tweet or cancel it at any time, too. Just mouse over your avatar on the scheduled Tweet you want to edit. It will give you a wrench icon to edit, and a trash icon to delete. Click which one you want to utilize, and hit save when you are done!

That’s it! On Wednesday, I’m going to talk about whether, and why, you should schedule Tweets in the first place.

Have a great blogging week!


  1. I spent a bit of time scheduling a number of tweets last night via tweetdeck and I was so wishing that there was a way of uploading a mass of them at one time and then setting the times/dates as needed and then push send. Maybe I need to some up with one?

  2. Can’t wait to read Wednesday’s post about why! Thanks for this – it is helpful. I’m going to try a few out.

  3. Thanks for the info. I’ve been wondering what that little clock was ;-).

  4. If you used to schedule tweets you can set them up on a calendar – months/years ahead. Repeat annually for birthdays – monthly to remind people about e.g. to send in their invoice/bill or simply a single one for a friend to remember to attend a meeting.

    And it’s free…

  5. Just scheduled a set of tweets using tweet deck, but i was wondering if tweet deck needs to be open and running for this to happen? I will not be at my computer and was not planning to have it switched on when I want it to tweet. Does anyone know what happens?

  6. I was wondering if there was a way to change the order of scheduled tweets so ones that are happening sooner are at the top.

  7. Wonderful, what a website it is! This web site provides
    valuable data to us, keep it up.
