TweetDeck – What is it? What can you do with it?
TweetDeck is a free tool provided by Twitter to allow you to schedule your tweets for free. Originally TweetDeck was an independent product. But, at some point Twitter brought it.
TweetDeck is more than just a scheduling tool. It allows you to see your home feed, tweet immediately, see what is trending, search for certain tweets or hashtags.
TweetDeck allows you to reply, like, respond, send Direct Messages, manage and monitor multiple account in one dashboard.
All that you can do on Twitter you can do on TweetDeck and more. It is a really great dashboard and allows you to do so much more than on Twitter.
It is easy to use.
It is safe
Because TweetDeck is part of Twitter you can use your Twitter login details.

How to Schedule a tweet using TweetDeck
- In your Google Search type in TweetDeck and search. Then make sure you select tweetdeck.twitter.com to ensure you have selected the correct one.
2) You will be taken to the TweetDeck dashboard which looks like this (below). The dashboard can be customised quite easily.
3) How to schedule a tweet on Tweetdeck.
The Tweet Button will change to the “Tweet at 10.35 button“. Basically the tweet button changes to the date and time you want to schedule the tweet for (see screenshot below).
Then it will appear in the schedule list. Once scheduled you cannot edit it. If you want to change it, the only option you have is to delete it.
You have now scheduled your first tweet. Now you just repeat the process for all the tweets you want to schedule, changing the dates and time as required.
I have also created a YouTube Video on how to do this if you find it easier.
Please could I ask you to ‘Like’ the YouTube video, if you like it? And Perhaps ‘Subscribe’ to my YouTube Channel as well. Here is the video, which I hope makes it easy for you.
