How to schedule a Tweet using Time Slots
If you'd like to speed up the scheduling process, we'd recommend setting up some recurring time slots, using your best times to post, or your usual preferred posting times.
- Head to the Scheduler and click on the calendar with the heart, top-right of your screen.
- Click to add a time slot and select the days to display it
- Once you have set up a Time Slot, you will see slots with hearts on your Calendar. You can then easily find the slots to publish in. Click on the box, or drag and drop media from your Media Library to quickly schedule a post for that time.
- Click on the post (it will display an orange bar because it will be saved as a draft), then click "Schedule" to make sure it is scheduled.

Using links in your Tweet caption
If you include a link in your Tweet caption, you should be able to see a link preview. Please note, if the link preview is blank, this means there is an issue with the metadata on the website that the link relates to, and we're unfortunately unable to provide a preview of the link. Please refer to this Twitter article for information on the meta tags you need to add to your website in order for that link to show a preview.
