About a week ago, we released TweetScheduler version 0.2.5 - a new version of our tweeting app for Joomla!, featuring compatibility with Joomla! 3.0 and the ability of rescheduling tweets - allowing for birthday-tweets, usergroup-reminders and much more. Check out the details!

Rescheduling tweets

TweetScheduler allows you to add twitter-messages in your Joomla! backend, pointing to your own Joomla! content or other external content - just like any Twitter-client would. But it also allows you to setup campaigns - say, categories with the same URL, allowing you to send multiple tweets with a specific URL. Ofcourse, you don't want all those tweets to be sent at the same time, so TweetSchedule also allows you to schedule when a tweet should be sent.

With version 0.2.5 this functionality is now extended: You can reschedule certain tweets by selecting a simple option, that copies the tweet once it is posted to Twitter. This allows you to reschedule powerful tweets without any extra work - within a couple of weeks, within a couple of months, or yearly. The tweets keep repeating themselves until you remove them.

Ofcourse this sounds spammy, but it is not. Sending out the same tweets is common with birthdays, returning events like JoomlaDays or user-group meetings, christmas-greetings, and many more practices. Very powerful and extremely handy!

Future additions

The main thing we will add to TweetScheduler in the next version - and with that, TweetScheduler becomes really cool - is Facebook-support and LinkedIn-support. In other words, TweetScheduler will not allow you to send API-messages through Twitter but through Facebook and LinkedIn as well.

Adding support for Google+ is on our wishlist as well, but unfortunately that API is still closed for public write-access. We have to wait for Google to open up the API-program first.
