How To Schedule same Tweet Multiple Times & Why?

We have been talking a lot about Twitter lately, and if you have missed How to get more followers on Twitter, I highly recommend you to read it.

Twitter is one of the top 5 Traffic sources for ShoutMeLoud. I often get into a discussion with my fellow marketers and content creators on the ways of tweeting the post.

The most common question I was asked is:

  • Is it good to tweet your post multiple times or just once?
  • How can we post the same tweet multiple times?

I always suggest and recommend tweeting your blog post multiple times. As your followers on Twitter might be from different time zones, you have to make sure that your tweet is reachable to most of the people who are following you.

Imagine a follower from different parts of the world, and probably when you have tweeted your post, another side of the world may be sleeping, and they would miss out on seeing/engaging with your Tweet.

So it’s a good idea to ensure your tweet goes live a few more times to cover all the time-zone.

For example, I have most of the followers from India and the U.S.A, and I have different effective times for sending tweets to target followers from both countries.

Tweet Repeat – How To Schedule the Same Tweet multiple times?

I workthe on simple strategy,

  • If it’s a news post/Twitter thread or a Tweet: I schedule it to be posted 2-3 times in the next 24 hours.
  • If it’s an evergreen Tweet, I schedule it to be published atleast 7-8 times in the next 100 days. 

Wondering how to repost the same tweet multiple times?

    I think tweet 2 times a day is sufficient . else it looks like a spam and because of it we can loose our followers.. What do u think

    1. Harsh Agrawal

      now I use SocialPilot & tweet the same post at least 10 times after gap of 6-10 days. So far I have not faced any issue & this technique seems to be working out great for many.

    Hi Harsh

    Tweeting a post multiple times is best option for base articles and not for all.

  3. jon

    I think tweeting a new post a second time is ok but tweeting out posts that are old is a definite no in my book. i would unfollow anyone who did so, there is promoting your content and then there is overselling it.

  4. Harshad

    Tweeting a post multiple times in a day is good strategy to bring traffic from different countries, but we need to make sure that it should not look like spam tweets. I have used this strategy with my blog and it definitely works!

  5. Uttoran Sen

    i have never thought of re-tweeting my tweets more than once, this is a good idea for sending traffic to old articles 🙂

  6. Malhar @ MyTFace

    I follow the strategy of tweeting tweets from different category. Keeping variation in tweets will help getting your followers attention.

  7. Technologian

    I think 2 tweets for a single post in a day will work better. First, to avoid multiple tweets of the same link. Secondly, you still have the option og using other micro-blogging platform to get inorganic traffic…

    Interesting thoughts about Retweeting. Before going through your article, I was tweeting my blog post once only, but now I’m thinking of doing it multiple times may be 2-3 times for some of popular posts on my blog.

  9. Ilija Brajkovic

    I also tweet 3-4 times per day, it think it’s not too much, and it’s definitely very useful.

  10. Vijay

  14. Tushar

    i was skeptical about tweeting my own posts….but you gave a good strategy to follow

  15. Karen

    I’m not too sure if this is on the fine line of spamming your followers, if they see the same thing over and over again they are going to unfollow you like a shot!

    1. Harsh Agrawal

      Karen It depends how we take it. For example when I work I stay online for 8-10 hours and after that I’m gone. And similarly after 8 hours your followers from other zone come online and they must have missed your updates which you have made earlier. Retweeting will make sure that your followers will not miss that update.

  16. Sagar

    That was a healty tip!
    I re tweet my older posts every week but didn’t repeated the posting of tweet every 8 hours..

    Will surely follow it.

    1. Harsh Agrawal

      Sagar even retweeting your post every week is a good advice as you will keep driving traffic to your old posts. Even I do that and my upcoming post is based on it 🙂

  17. Pubudu Kodikara

    I agree with you mate! but we should not over do it, so our followers may get irritated! 😀

    1. Harsh Agrawal

      I agree with you Pubudu, overdoing is like killing your own brand.

  18. Avinash

    Harsh, Nice Strategy will try this out in the next few days, also having more followers also helps increase the reach in this strategy.

    1. Harsh Agrawal

      I’m sure it will help..but don’t over do it and make sure to include hashtag into your tweet keywords.
