In this post we will explain how to use Buffer with to schedule your posts. This is a very easy way to boost your engagement, and makes growing your community hassle-free. We all know that overwhelming our followers with a constant stream of generic updates is bad practice when building meaningful relationships.

Buffer is a powerful service that allows you to schedule all your posts across a variety of social networks.

Your tweets will then be added to the queue, and will be sent according to your Buffer schedule.

      Yeah you can. Definitely. You can set up your schedule(s) in Buffer, and it will regularly send out content. Definitely worth your time to take a look at it as an app. The free level is actually pretty sweet, and paid “Awesome” plan is fantastic.

    Hi I had Buffer all set up, but now it’s telling me “you don’t have permission to post to that profile_id”. Is there a place to go to check your Buffer settings/integration? I have two twitter accounts and therefore two Buffer accounts, could that be the hangup? One account works fine w/Buffer but when I log out of it and into the other one, it doesn’t work.
