How to schedule a Tweet with Photo / Video / Gif

By  | 

The more you tweet, better the engagement you receive. To maintain the pace of Twitter, most of the Twitter businesses schedule a tweet with photos and videos in advance.

Research says that you should post at least 6 tweets a day or one tweet per hour of your business.

Time and frequency of tweets are very critical to a good Twitter profile. If you wish to grow your Twitter followers and boost Twitter engagement, you have to plan your weekly and monthly tweets.

With my personal experience I know that unless you schedule tweets, it’s not possible to send out tweets on time for most of the SMEs.

Schedulers like Circleboom make it very easy for you to schedule your tweets. In fact, you can plan your tweets months in advance and save yourself from the everyday effort.

    I must be doing something wrong – my RSS feed includes graphics (https://www.wildkidz.com/feed/factoid.php?twitter), but for some reason these are not included in tweets from CircleBoom. Or is this feature not included as part of RSS feed tweets?

      Deej,

      Circleboom RSS Feed module takes the title and link info from the feed and posts it to Twitter after adding start & end texts you gave. The graphics you expected are distributed in Feed’s description field which we’re not using. Twitter pulls the image from the link we posted of your post and displays it on Tweet. If we add description field, Tweet will not be displayed as we expected. That’s why we’re ignoring the description field.

      Here is an excellent example to that: https://twitter.com/atakane/status/1061260436526583808
      I’m using Nasa image of the day, Circleboom pulling the text from the feed and posting it to Twitter. Twitter uses its own algorithm to pick the best picture from the NASA.

    Don’t you think, scheduling is really hectic on Circleboom? The way circleboom allow scheduling takes lots of time, which make circleboom unproductive. Why don’t you implement something like buffer where user has the power to set a schedule and addon to schedule a post or articles.

      Hi Vivek, thank you for the review and the suggestion. The current Circleboom features Twitter Profile Management, RSS Feeds, Analytics, and Fast Scheduling. In the near future, we’re planning to bring in some robust account moderation features as you mentioned.
