Twitter now lets you schedule tweets, save them as drafts on web app: How it works

Here are the simple steps on how you can save and retrieve a drafted tweet on the Twitter web.


Microblogging site Twitter has introduced two new features for its web app. Now users can save a tweet before sending it and also schedule a time for it to be automatically posted. The company announced that these features will be available to users in the web application and not the mobile phone version for now at least.

According to Twitter, while typing in a new tweet, you will see a calendar icon beside the emoji icon at the bottom of the window. Click on that and select the date and time when you would like to tweet the post. Using this will be similar to scheduling a tweet via TweetDeck.
