      Huge time saver. I used to tweet from the Leanstack account in real-time. Then I somehow found out that people don’t actually do that anymore. I had heard of Buffer somehow, so I tried it out and was on the free tier for a while. Then I realized I could save a ton of time by just scheduling tweets once/week. Then I hit the Free plan limit, and I upgraded and started the once/week scheduling. I’ve been happy ever since. Protip: use the “Shuffle” feature after scheduling a lot of tweets at once to mix it up a bit

      Honestly have not yet used Buffer in this particular stack, but with past experience using it and a personal inclination towards Buffer for social media management, we intend to handle syndicated and scheduled social media content to Twitter, Facebook, and LinkedIn using them.
