Don’t spam your twitter followers

Some people tend to re-tweet a lot of tweets right after they came on-line on Twitter. While re-tweeting is not a bad thing, it might be disturbing when somebody I follow spams or floods my timeline with 5 or even more re-tweets, posted in the same minute. At least, I find it disturbing.

On the other hand, clicking RT is very easy, and scheduling all these RT’s can be a huge and time-consuming job. Buffer solves the pain of scheduling tweets

What does do?

If you buffer a tweet, a Facebook or LinkedIn update buffer will add this post in your buffer queue. You define the time schedule, and buffer adds it in the next available slot. And when the time has come, buffer will post on the selected social media network.

Buffer makes your life easier with a smarter way to schedule the great content you find. Fill up your buffer at one time in the day and buffer automagically posts them for you through the day. Simply keep that Buffer topped up to have a consistent social media presence all day round, all week long.
