How to schedule video tweet or gif tweet

How to schedule video tweet or gif tweet

. 3 min read

If you’re only scheduling text and image tweets even today, you’re way behind.  Video tweets get 3 times more retweets than gif tweets and 6 times more tweets than image tweets. With the world moving towards videos faster than ever, it’s important for every Twitter marketer to schedule video tweets or gif tweets when planning their content calendar.

As of 2020, according to a research by Hubspot, 92% of marketers said that video forms an important part of their marketing strategy. They also say that video gives them a 5% increase on their last year’s ROI making them a substantial marketing element in today’s times. Using videos and gifs on social media has become an opportunity that nobody wants to lose.

So, whether you’re new or old to the Twitter business, it’s time to invest in video tweets and share them on effective times by adding them to your social media plan. In this article, we will learn how you can quickly schedule video tweets and gif tweets.

Steps to schedule video and gif tweets:

  • Login to the Circleboom dashboard by authenticating your Twitter account.
  • Once logged in, go the the Circleboom menu on the left, select “Publish”, and from the sub-menu, select “Schedule a tweet.”
  • You will see a simple and clean interface where you can create your tweets and then schedule them. To create video tweets, simply click on add media and upload your video along with the tweet content. You can add text and emoticons just like when posting on Twitter.
  • To schedule a gif tweet, you can add gif by clicking on “Find a GIF.” Search for the gif that best suits your tweet and add it.
  • Once your tweet has been created, you can either schedule it at a particular date/time, tweet now, or add it to your queue. To schedule, click on schedule it and you will be prompted to add the details.
  • To publish tweets by adding to the queue, you first need to create your queue. To create your queue, go to Publish -> Settings -> Queue Settings. With the queue settings, you can:

Set post-interval: With a gap of 10 minutes to 12 hours, you can select the right post-interval for your posts to go out.  For example, if you set the post-interval to 6 hours, then your scheduled posts will be published on Twitter every 6 hours. Set “start-time” and “end-time”: Select the start-time for each day, meaning the time from which your first tweet can be sent. Select the end-time for each day, the time before which your last tweet will be sent.

  • Once your queue has been set, you can quickly schedule tweets with videos and gif by uploading your content and adding them to the queue. This will save you from adding date and  time every time you schedule a new tweet.
  • To see all your scheduled and published tweets, click on “Publish” -> “Sent items” and all your scheduled tweets will be listed.

Schedule and enjoy

Make the most out of videos and gifs by adding them to your tweets and increasing your Twitter engagement. Scheduling your tweets in advance will help you to plan your content and publish them at best times.
