How I use Buffer to help manage my Twitter account

Published December 21, 2015   Posted in How to Think

Twitter is an amazing tool, but only if you keep up with it and maintain your account. Buffer is an application that helps social media users keep up by allowing scheduled posts to be setup before hand and released periodically throughout the day without having to press the “Tweet” button.

Buffer allows various social media profiles to be connected through a single Buffer account, streamlining the process of posting messages to different profiles. Instead of logging into each social media profile separately, login to your Buffer account and post or schedule out posts for all of your accounts – all at once. It’s a great little tool.

Here is how I use Buffer to manage my Twitter account.

P.S.: This is my first ever screencast and would appreciate any constructive criticism and suggestions for how to make future screencasts even better.

  1. Hey Steve, coincidentally I just filled my buffer feed for tomorrow when you post notification showed up in my mailbox! 🙂

    Anyhow, I also love using Buffer. It’s super intuitive and helpful with managing tweets and FB posts. BTW, awesome screencast! Which screencast program are you using?

  2. Buffer is awesome….I just moved from Hootsuite to Buffer. In many ways, a superior platform for managing all your social media avenues….Steve

  3. I’m a Buffer user, but not very consistently. With a full-time job, getting systems that make sense is crucial.

  4. STEVE! I literally just yesterday wrote down: “January 2016: figure out how to use Buffer to schedule tweets.” How do you read my mind? This was awesome and you made it seem so simple! Thanks for doing the work for me and letting me hit a 2016 goal before the end of the year. Maybe I’ll play around with it after Christmas! (Feedback: I think it was great. It was short and informative – perfect combination!)

  5. Another Buffer fan. Though I don’t use it as much as I used to (out of pure laziness). Great tool to share and track for sure!

    Thank you so much for posting this. I’d been looking in WordPress for a way to schedule tweets so now I know 🙂

    Nice screencast. I didn’t realize Buffer Analytics worked without using as the URL shortener.

    Buffer is great! Between Buffer and Revive Old Posts, I can keep my Twitter feed and Facebook page constantly updating with great content, mine and others.

    With their great browser extension and app, I can do all my sharing from my browser, so I rarely have to open the website or app unless I need to massage a message, e.g. adding hashtags.

      Thanks Jack, appreciate you taking a look at the screen cast. I agree, Buffer is a really useful app. And with social media, it’s always nice to get some help managing it all! 🙂
