ReadWriteWeb Recommends: The Best Free Service For Scheduling Tweets

first_imgHave you outgrown the blindly tweeting phase of social media? You need to get a Twitter schedule app that times your tweets for when your followers are around to hear from and react to you. How does the best free scheduler compare to the best paid service? Here’s the answer.The best social-media scheduling service is SocialFlow, which we reviewed in February. The service not only uses analytics to send tweets when most of your followers are online, it also can send when your followers are discussing the subject of your tweet. SocialFlow’s service is effective, with some people reporting as much as a 60% increase in engagement, but it’s also costly: $99 a month.We wanted something more affordable, and were willing to sacrifice some of the spot-on engagement for a free, easy service. HootSuite recently launched an auto-schedule feature, but in our tests, it doesn’t effectively time tweets to when most of your followers are online (we’re also not thrilled with the analytics, which HootSuite sends weekly as an email). We used to love the free offering at 14Blocks, which gave us the two top times to tweet each day which we could combine with the tweet scheduling of HootSuite or TweetDeck, but 14Blocks is now a paid service.Our Recommendation: Buffer 5 Outdoor Activities for Beating Office Burnout Tags:#Reviews#web HootSuite also allows schedule syncing with SocialBro, but Buffer stood out on another front: It offered the best analytics of the three services we looked at.We were able to quickly find the basic data for each tweet, including clicks, retweets and reach. Analytics are arranged chronologically, making it easy to see how a given tweet performed. 4 Keys to a Kid-Safe App 9 Books That Make Perfect Gifts for Industry Ex…center_img Related Posts Buffer let us connect one Facebook page, one Twitter account and one LinkedIn account for free, and we can schedule posts from whatever page we’re on with a Chrome or Firefox extension. We’re not content with mobile Buffer, as you have to copy links and open the Buffer app to schedule your post, but the desktop version works perfectly.What really set Buffer apart, however, was its integration with SocialBro, a free service for managing and analyzing Twitter followers and traffic. After running SocialBro’s “Best Times To Tweet” report, we can set Buffer to tweet at peak times with a single click. (Buffer recommends running the report weekly and updating your Buffer schedule after getting the results.)  dave copeland 12 Unique Gifts for the Hard-to-Shop-for People…last_img read more

Central Ministers are running Goa: AAP

first_imgA day after the Congress petitioned Goa Governor Mridula Sinha seeking a white paper on decisions taken by the government during the absence of ailing Chief Minister Manohar Parrikar, the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) on Tuesday accused Central ministers of running the Goa government by rotation.Goa general secretary of the AAP, Pradeep Padgaonkar, told presspersons here on Tuesday that the Bharatiya Janata Party-led coalition government in Goa was “dysfunctional” and virtually non-existent. “The Goa Ministers are clueless about what was happening on the ground. Local ministers have become bystanders and all dealings are made during visits by Central ministers like Nitin Gadkari and Suresh Prabhu, whether it is about Goa’s land or rivers,” said Mr. Padgaonkar.He was referring to the recent visits of Union Minister for Road Transport, Highways, Shipping Nitin Gadkari and Union Minister for Civil Aviation Suresh Prabhu over the past one month, when they discussed State-related issues in presence of local ruling legislators and made several key announcements related to the handling of the scenario after the iron ore mining ban and taxi operator-related issues at Goa’s Dabolim International Airport. The Opposition, as well as civil society, have been claiming that governance and administration have collapsed in the absence of Chief Minister Parrikar who is under advanced treatment for a pancreas-related disease in a New York hospital. Mr. Parrikar, who held over 20 crucial portfolios including Home and Finance, has been unable to attend office since February 15, when he was admitted to the State-run Goa Medical College Hospital for stomach pain. He was since twice admitted to Lilavati Hospital in Mumbai and from there shifted to the US. To run the government in his absence, Mr. Parrikar has appointed a three-member ministerial committee, which takes take decisions related to day-to-day administrative affairs.The AAP on Tuesday also accused the coalition government of cosying up to the influential casino lobby, for agreeing to consider a reduction of casino licence fees while simultaneously increasing fees for essential services and government licence processes. Mr. Padgaonkar said, “The common man is already reeling under the weight of the steep increase in fees of basic essential services. But the government, instead of reducing these fees, is considering reducing casino licence fees.”On Monday, Congress leaders in Goa called on Ms. Sinha seeking to know the latest on Mr. Parrikar’s condition. “We have told her that we have to have an official statement from her on Mr. Parrikar’s health status, which is required in the interest of the State,” Congress legislative party spokesperson Aleixo Reginaldo Lawrenco told presspersons outside Raj Bhavan after a delegation of Congress leaders met the Governor on Monday. Congress president Shantaram Naik also called for a white paper on decisions taken by the government in the absence of Mr. Parrikar.last_img read more
