The creators of Buffer, Joel Gascoigne and Leo Widrich explain how it works, "We designed Buffer to offer you a both personal and yet more efficient solution to handle Twitter. Buffer makes your life easier with a smarter way to schedule tweets. Work out all your tweets at one point in time during the day. Then fill up your Buffer with your tweets and Buffer schedules them for you. Simply keep that Buffer topped up and you will then be tweeting consistently all day round, all week long."
Of course you can schedule your tweets with either TweetDeck or Hootsuite, as I have used before. One of the features that makes Buffer different is that it also includes the "Inspire me!" button. Different quotes will appear for you to tweet to your followers. If you "Post Now" your post will immediately show up on Twitter or if you choose "Add to Buffer" it will be scheduled to tweet in the future based on the schedule you have chosen.
Right now Buffer is available on Chrome, Safari and Firefox, or you can add the Bookmarklet. I only use Chrome, so I am not sure if the Buffer icon is visible on the other extensions' tweets. As you can see below Buffer appears on the tweet.
Click on Buffer directly on Twitter and then you can edit and schedule your RT.
You can even check the Analytics of your tweets right on Buffer. Here is a tweet that went out today at 12:17 PM. So far there were 35 clicks and 2842 potential views.
I am enjoying the ease and time saving features that Buffer has to offer both on Twitter and Facebook. I have also been using Buffer on Triberr with the Promotional Tweets. My Christmas wish is that Dino Dogan and Dan Cristo from Triberr will add the Buffer icon as an option for us to use when we share our Tribemate's posts!
