Why plan your content with Metricool?
Are you still considering using Metricool’s tweet scheduler? This list of advantages will help you to decide.
What are the advantages of programming on Twitter with Metricool?
✅ Tag users
With Metricool, you can schedule any tweet type containing at least one image and tag users you want. Of course as long as they are not suspended accounts, and the user has not blocked the tag option.
On Twitter, which does not allow you to program tweets with a tag, the tagging feature works differently than on Instagram. In this case, you don’t tag on one part of the image but in the entire tweet, even if you need to add a photo to have this option.
✅ Best hours to post
With Metricool, you can post at the best hours when your audience is more active on Twitter.
This feature is based on the hours in which your followers are most active. The darker the tone, the better the time to share your content on Twitter.
Use these hours to maximize interactions and stand out from your competition.
✅ Schedule Threads
“I open thread”. You have probably seen this phrase hundreds of times on Twitter. A chain of tweets explaining something. Given the limitation of characters you can use in one tweet, this option comes in handy for describing something that requires more information.
With Metricool, you can easily schedule Twitter threads to plan them ahead of time and ensure they will display properly once posted.
✅ Post autolists.
With Metricool, you can always have content that will post automatically and periodically. Metricool’s autolists work like a wheel that never stops turning.
It’s easy: type the text and add the multimedia content, choose the day of the week and time you want to share it, and toggle the repeat button on. This way, the content will be shared every week at the day and time of your choice.
✅ All social networks in one place.
What better way to work with the social networks you manage than to have them all on the same platform?
In addition to saving time, with Metricool, you can simultaneously schedule the same content for different platforms. The tweet scheduler ensures you share a consistent message across all platforms.
