    This is my contribution. Forgive the unprofessional writeup but after tip-toeing topics here and there for a year, I just now locked down and spent many hours to find the answer. IS THERE AN EASY AND FREE WAY TO BULK SCHEDULE TWEETS WITH A SIMPLE TEXT DOCUMENT? In all topics on forums like this and Google there were a ton of suggestions that just plain don't work and had nothing to do with the question. Therefore like with all methods you have to lurk and slowly gain info until you come across something useful. P.S. - I only spent a few minutes on each app, I was frustrated and wanted a simple solution. So keep that in mind my views may be flawed, I didn't bother to do research I only tested them so please correct if wrong. The reason this is a list is because we all know bots and apps die over the years. These ONLY have to do with BULK SCHEDULING VIA TEXT DOCUMENT. Here it is:


    #1
    GrabinBox
    Free, the best. The easiest. Use this. I saved you hours of searching. As a bonus, When you add your twitter account it automatically analyzes the best times to tweet. You can delete these and add your own times, 15 minutes minimum. I easily scheduled 1000+ tweets in the queue. (Need another to test to confirm) There doesn't seem to be any easy way to mass delete, so plan carefully. Support for multiple Twitter accounts and a few other social networks. P.S. - it looks like the devs are inactive can't find any way to contact and their social networks have gone quiet. I hope it doesn't die.

    AzulSocial
    (Haven't touched this for many months so try for yourself)
    Exploitable free 30 day trial. I payed for this before but the limit was worse than the trial. You can sign up again under a different email Bulk schedule kind of buggy, ocassionally it will churn out a bunch of tweets super fast. you gotta catch it. also, you can't use apostraphe and most other special characters in your tweets.

    IFTT
    This is a desperate method in case the others don't work.
    If "SPECIFIC TIME" then "Post to Twitter"
    And you add a mass amount of specific times.
    I had 48 (2 tweets an hour) at one point and it worked fine (No duplicate post warning).
    But use at your own discretion as Twitter probably doesn't like Tweets at the same exact time every day. This is good for loading up a few ads or for a small daily list on top of your normal posting.

    Twittbot.net
    A bhw member mentioned that you can bulk schedule for free.
    Crazy japanese site, I cant understand it or get it to work.

    Hootsuite
    Schedule up to 50(?)
    Uses crappy CSV that takes a lot of work to input all the times EVERY TIME you want to bulk schedule. We want to automate bulk tweets! We don't want to do work, that defeats the purpose, Wtf!
    There was another app that works with Hootsuite, try and Google to find it. You upload your list and it outputs it in the hootsuite csv format.
    10$ a month(?)

    Bulkbuffer
    Schedule 10 posts in seconds. More if you want to pay 10$ a month for bufferapp, I don't know how many more.

    Twidium Accounter
    Trial
    Cost: 47$
    Recommended by Me.
    Really easy to bulk schedule with text file.
    Heavy PC usage, No minimize to Taskbar. multiple accounts.


    Twitter Supremacy
    Free 3 day trial or
    50$

    Recommended by BHW members
    I personally couldn't get the bulk schedule to work on my 32-bit system but my trial ran out before i could solve the problem. Blame my incompetence not the software. I wasn't feeling the UI but that's just me. This software is VERY powerful with other features. The autopilot thing is incredible, but takes a minute to grasp. VERY cool software, try for yourself it's worth it.

    TweeterNaire
    17$ for life
    Sad it seems to be unsupported now. Such a good price. Last 2 posts in his warrior thread are from people that can't reach him. Twitter looks dead. Site says 2013. However, the website has blog post in November 2014 about new launches.

    Twando
    It requires server hosting (a.k.a. cost $$)and a little scripting knowledge to setup.
    For that reason I didn't try it. FREE

    Tweetadder4
    20$ a month
    Recommended by BHW members
    Free trial requires Paypal information.
    For that reason I chose not to try this.
    The other bots didn't require this.

    Manageflitter
    14 day trial / 20$ a month per account
    I've used free version for years as the quickest way to unfollow

    Tweepi
    It's really good web app but please stop recommending it as it doesn't have any schedule feature.

    >>NEVER GOT AROUND TO TRYING:

    Vicconsult - buffered bulk tweets
    FREE
    Up to 720 tweets, 1 per hour. No way to set time.
    Test for yourself and see if it works.

    Mass Planner
    5 day trial / 10$ a month
    http://www.blackhatworld.com/blackh...ot-twitter-bot-all-one-easy-use-platform.html

    Socialoomph
    Free= 5 accounts, non-bulk schedule
    7 day trial
    14$ a month

    Socialbro
    Free 2 twitter accounts
    or 14$ a month
    Recommended by BHW members
    Didn't try it but it didnt mention a bulk schedule anywhere on the website despite bhw members recommending it for BULK/MASS Scheduling.
    Try for yourself.

    Hi,

    Just tried Grabinbox. Is there a special format that the text doc needs to be in for it to recognise that there are multiple tweets? When I tried it just amalgamated it all into one tweet and said it was too big.

    I used a .txt file seperated by line break [Enter]. If you go into notepad or a similar program turn word wrap off and be sure to press enter after every tweet. So it will look like this:

    I uploaded some very large text files and the upload worked.


    I read a few reports saying 90% of Twando doesn't work, except that the bulk scheduling part of Twando does work. I haven't confirmed or tested this so you might be right. I might edit the post to reflect that.

    Thanks for the list. I agree, Twitter is a nightmare for scheduling posts. With facebook and tumblr i just fling the pictures up then set the post date and time.

    Thanks. Doing it in Word and then saving as a txt file does not work (at least on a Mac), but it looks like TextEdit on a Mac, and I guess notepad on a PC does - great work!

    Thanks OP, but I'm not having much luck with these.

    GrabinBox works great, but doesn't allow photos
    Hootsuite allows photos, but the feature is broken

    There's no way I'm going to pay $10/month to some crappy website just to schedule tweets.

    I want to schedule unlimited Tweets with photos Anyone know of anything else free that would do this?

    If not, does FollowLiker have the option for this? If I'm going to buy something it's going to be something like FollowLiker that has additional benefits.
