5 Easy Ways to Schedule Your Tweets

Twitter has taken over the Internet by storm. In the last year and half, Twitter has become one of those companies that even the mainstream media keeps track of. Not even a single day passes by without a mention of Twitter either in the news or in newspapers.

Twitter is the darling and a poster child of the new real time web and in some ways, it is the service that actually started the real time web phenomenon.

It is no wonder, then, that from journalists to students, housewives to techies, from company CEOs to marketing gurus, everyone is hooked on to twitter with different people using it for different purposes.

Whatever your purpose for using twitter is, if you’re too tired keeping up with the real time natures of tweeting, and you still want to “keep your timeline alive” throughout the day, we’ve got some really neat twitter schedulers lined up for you.

You’d be pleasantly surprised with the power of the simple interface and I’m sure would never want to get back to Twitter’s web interface ever again.

2. Twuffer
