I just want to give a shout out to one of my new favorite social media tools: Buffer. I can’t even remember how I stumbled upon this wonderful gem. Maybe it was a re-tweet? Maybe it was in one of the several blog posts I’ve read lately.
However I came to find it, I’m in love. Here are 4 reasons I love Buffer for Twitter:
1. It saves time and trouble. Yes, the two “T’s.” Think traveling with spotty internet access or working all day at a non-social media oriented job. Buffer does all the hard work of making sure my scheduled tweets get tweeted right when I want them to. So, I’m the one tweeting…but then I’m not.
2. It’s super easy to use. It’s easy to sign in via my Twitter account (you can also sign in via Facebook and LinkedIn and schedule posts for them as well). It’s easy to add tweets to my dashboard. It’s easy to change the days/times I want my tweets to be tweeted. It’s just super easy.
3. It makes managing multiple accounts a breeze. You can add up to two different social media accounts to your dashboard for free (example: one twitter account and one Facebook account). You can always purchase more space as needed. It keeps them separate. It keeps them awesome. It’s great.
4. It suggests tweets if you’ve run out of ideas. While I don’t use this feature a lot, just because I like my tweets to be my tweets, it’s still cool. And it helps in a pinch. When I just want an inspiring quote or a fresh thought.
Buffer is my new BFF. Check it out!
