No, this doesn’t mean you’ll need to start paying Twitter to use their tool. Anyone can schedule tweets on Twitter using the ads tool.
Note: scheduling tweets through Twitter only works on a desktop. You cannot schedule tweets from a mobile device (yet).
Another thing that I find interesting. The timing of this announcement aligns perfectly with the upcoming Twitter IPO and suggests that Twitter plans to make money by giving all users the ability to create Twitter Ads.
What’s also interesting is that this could mean the end of HootSuite – more on that later though.
To schedule tweets on Twitter, follow the instructions below.

While I’m all for using Twitter Analytics Tools to help measure the success of your social media campaigns on Twitter, there is a lot of redundancy in the market.

I’ve compiled a list of 5 FreeTwitter Analytics Tools that I often recommend to clients or people who want to measure their success on Twitter.

In order to be able to view their tweets, you’ll need to request to follow them and have wait for them to accept you. Once they do, you’ll then be able to see their tweets. Sounds complicated doesn’t it? It is.
In fact, whenever I come across someone who uses Twitter protected tweets, I keep moving. That’s because to me, it shows they’re not active, they have something to hide, and they don’t value my time because they’ve made it so difficult to connect with them.

For the most part though, Twitter protected tweets, really don’t serve much purpose if you’re serious about using it as a social media tool to build and grow your online presence. Not only does it make Twitter frustrating to use if your tweets are protected, but there are a lot of other things you need to consider before turning on Twitter protected tweets as well – things that could stunt your growth on Twitter before you even begin to use it.
With this mornings December jobs report, you could say that job growth is pretty flat. Sure, numbers didn’t look all that bad, but the biggest issue is that people stopped looking for jobs (for whatever reason).
