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.
We use Buffer for general social media management, especially in terms of analytics and general oversight.
We use Buffer to plan our important tweets like reminders for call for speakers, registration, etc.
