A couple of months ago I started trying a cool Chrome add-on called BufferApp. The idea behind it is to make it easy for you to quickly tweet – or schedule tweets – articles/info as you find them while surfing. This is similar to Hootsuite, Seesmic and Tweetdeck as they all include this functionality as well. But what I love about BufferApp is that you can set up your own calendar of times when you want to tweet during the day – and as you find and “add to your buffer” you fill up your pipeline with content. Why is this good? Well I like to block out my time so I usually have 15-20 minutes when I’m looking through my feeds and finding fun articles to share with followers. But I don’t want to tweet 5-7 articles at the same time. By using BufferApp (as well as Hootsuite) I’m able to spread out the posts so that I’m providing information to my followers throughout the day – and not annoying them with a blast of tweets all at once.
I created a brief video demo that shows how it works:
