I do a lot of reading and try to share a lot of the best stuff I find via twitter. Usually this resulted in a big mass flood of tweets in the dark hours of the morning when most people here in the U.S. are still sleeping. Recently I discovered a much better way to do this by using Buffer. The beauty of Buffer is that you can queue your updates and it sends them out at the optimum times to reach your audience.
Buffer is very simple to use and there are a bunch of different ways for you to queue your posts including:
- Bookmarklet (browser):
- Bookmarklet (iPad): How to setup the bookmarklet on iPad
- Email: I do most of my reading in MobileRSS on the iPad , so the easiest way for me to get things from there to Buffer is via email. Buffer has built-in support for the email formats created by all the popular mobile apps and every user has their own secret email address.
- Google Reader: It’s easy to set up a “Send to” option right in your Google Reader. Check out the instructions here.
- Browser add-ins for Firefox & Chrome
