Twitter officially announces draft box and timed release feature

Media reported on Twitter’s timing and draft features a few weeks ago, and today the company officially announced a new feature for the PWA client. As originally reported, a timed release can set a date for up to 18 months. Pop-ups can also select specific time zones and schedule a list of tweets, making it easy for users to plan and manage multiple tweets.

Custom releases are understood to have become part of Twitter’s officially developed TweetDeck advanced configuration management tool. In addition to regular postings, Twitter today announced the save of draft tweets.

Earlier, users could have temporarily retained relevant text in the top area of the timeline while navigating to other parts of the site, but this feature does not apply to pop-up tweet ingisers.

When you click the mouse from a pop-up text edit box, the site usually asks if to “discard” the tweet you’re currently editing, or “continue” to finish.

The good news is that you can now save the tweets specifically and change the wording to “abandon” or “save” so that they can continue writing later.

To continue editing later, click on the “Unsent Tweets” link in the upper right corner and move to the draft box. Unfortunately, the coverage area of the feature is not perfect enough, as users can only do so on pop-up text editing boxes.
