Yesterday we talked about scheduling posts on Facebook. Twitter is a much different animal. Many of you know I prefer Twitter much more over Facebook. Twitter seems to be more organic. People are much less hesitant to join a conversation on Twitter and you make new friends all the time 🙂
But Twitter is also much more fast paced, and if you are out there to promote your music or art, you need to be active in the Twitter community. I use the Twitter mobile app, in fact it is one of the few apps I allow to send me push notices anymore. This is because I want to be able to react or jump in to a conversation as it happens.
Also I do schedule my blog posts on Twitter. I like using Tweetdeck for this. There are other options out there, for example Hootsuite is another popular one. Tweetdeck allows you to schedule a huge amount of posts long in advance, and the posts go out whether you are online or not. In fact, if you are organised enough, you could schedule your core posts once a week. But I would also add in to this some “in the moment” tweets. Otherwise everything starts to feel bit too automated. You are here to make connections with real people, so be real 🙂
