How To Use The New Buffering Patterns [NEW FEATURE]

The feedback and request we received for this feature during the week was purely amazing. Thanks to everyone who got in touch and requested that this could be useful to them.

As of today, you can easily add additional Buffering patterns to make your Tweeting more personalised.

What is Buffer?

Buffer is a completely new way to share the content we come across each day. You simply drop Tweets into your Buffer and the App posts them for you well spaced out over the day. It is like a social Instapaper. Insteading of clicking to read it later. Click the article to be tweeted later via one of the browser extensions and continue your reading adventure.

Give Buffer a go here.

How does it work?

Our main goal was to keep the same simplicity, yet offer you more options to create a customised Tweeting patterns.

So the new Buffering patterns allow you to create different Tweeting times for different days. So say for example I am tweeting 6 times a day during weekdays and only 2 times a day during weekends.

You can of course add more Buffering patterns. Maybe you want to create a different one for each day? The choice is yours.

I have also made a quick video for you explaining it:

Why would I use Buffering patterns?

We created Buffering patterns in order to allow for a more genuine and personalised Tweeting experience.

Our goal is to allow you and anyone else using Buffer to become a great source of content. By giving you the option to tweet at the frequency and pattern you believe is best, we hope that you can achieve even better results.


We’re happy to let you know that all of you can now choose which days you’d like to Tweet. To create different Buffering patterns, you’ll want to try our Pro or Premium plan.
