Buffer is a smarter way to Twitter, without over whelming your followers


This is one of those ideas that is so simple and so elegant, you slap yourself on the forehead and say, “Of course!” You add tweets to your Buffer whenever you want. It then spreads them out during the day, so it doesn’t overwhelm your followers. (I’ve been guilty of this!) You set the times you want to tweet.

The Chrome extension makes it drop-dead easy. The interface is simple and beautiful. You can even use your bit.ly account with a custom URL shortener (like I do with mhyatt.us). I upgraded to the Pro version, which allows 50 tweets in the buffer at one time.

I’m no longer running comments on my blog. For more information regarding this decision, please read this post.
