Every year, more than 30 million tweets are scheduled through Buffer, making it the number one channel where Buffer users are scheduling their social media posts. As of today, we’re helping Buffer users take their planning to the next level — we’ve just released scheduling for Twitter threads so that anyone can easily schedule their Twitter threads with Buffer for free!
You can now draft unlimited-length Twitter threads, preview how’ll they look, save them for later, and schedule them for the optimal time.

Why you should schedule Twitter Threads
No one is happier about us adding thread scheduling to Buffer than our own social media manager, Mitra!
Here’s a thread she recently scheduled to Buffer’s twitter account about Twitter’s latest features. I love it because it highlights a few of the things that Buffer can help you with when it comes to threads.
1. Save threads for later
This thread had been in the works for a little while. Mitra was able to start writing it a few weeks ago, save it as a draft, and come back to it later after she had done some more research.
2. Quickly find and add images to your thread
Buffer lets you import media from Google, OneDrive, Dropbox. You can also grab content straight from Canva or Giphy.
3. Add links to your thread
The call to action on this thread includes a link to a blog post.
4. Use insights to schedule at the best time
Mitra scheduled this thread to go out at the optimal time, based on the insights generated by Buffer’s data analysis.
