Someone had tweeted a link to Twuffer on twitter so I checked it out and found lots of good uses and reasons for why somebody would want to post date tweets.

First Twuffer is a web based application that allows you to create tweets and assign a date/time you would like your tweet to go out. You can use it to post immediately, but that is not the main intention and benefit of the application. It also isn’t used for reading tweets strictly for creating, and tracking your post dated ones.

First thing you do is go to Twuffer

Login with your Twitter ID and Password, and then go to the Settings so you can setup your time zone. When you set a time zone, the tweet will post based on that hour in your time zone.

After you setup your time zone and date format, then you can start writing tweet’s and setting the date you wish for them to post. This is very easy, you just simple enter your 140 character message, and then use the “When to Tweet” drop downs to select your date and time you want to post the tweet.

Twuffer

I tested this early this morning, where I setup a tweet to post at 10am a few hours earlier, and it went off without a hitch.

So what can you utilize Twuffer for? Why Post Date your Tweets?

Here is the best reasons I can think of:

#1 if you are a blogger and you are going out of town, and you post date blog posts, you can post date tweets to tell your tweeple to visit your blog post, this will keep people checking your blog and advertising your blog while you are out of town.

#2 if you need to setup some reminders for you and a group of your twitter friends, this is a great way to setup tweetup reminders. Like if you set date a tweet for next week at 9am saying that you want to organize a tweetup. You can set a post dated tweet as a reminder for the tweetup in case you forget to manually remind.

#3 if you do a series or a specific time/date based topic of tweet, you can predate these. Like if you always mention something about sports at 11am on wednesdays, you can pre-queue these type of tweets.

Also, If I know I won’t have access to twitter for a day or 5 hours tomorrow, I can create a bunch of post dated tweets to keep up my “twitter” presence, without actually having to be on twitter.

Hope this helps.

    It looks like only robots use twitter. I get so many automated messages. It is really awful.

    Twuffer seems to be quite interesting. Everyday I come across a new twitter application, I guess there are thousands of such applications that serve different purposes. Now, I think I am losing the track of “what application does what?”

    Twitter has been very useful to spread the word for my online business and create a bit of a buzz. I also think the short message service is a good idea so people are not able to send around long winded messages.
