Timely the Talented Twitter Tool

As Twitter continues to become a most popular source of networking, communication, and aggregation, the list of tools available to help fully manage one or more Twitter accounts continues to grow. Although there are several options available online that are very similar, Timely seems to have refined all of the best available options in social media management, and added them to this one smooth aggregation tool. Never fear, Facebook personal and Fan page integration is also available on Timely.

Timely Features

Timely is another tool on the growing list of tweet schedulers that assist users in setting their tweets to launch based on the time of day when the probability of a click or re-tweet is highest. Timely uses an algorithm that helps to determine the best time of the day or night where most of your followers will see the tweet. This not only increased the chance of clicks, but also helps encourage re-tweets.

  • Timely provides an easy user-interface that is minimalistic. Since many Twitter scheduler tools tend to be a bit chaotic, Timely’s smooth uncluttered face is a refreshing change.
  • Timely has a browser plug in that makes it even easier to grab content from the net and schedule it for Twitter.
  • Timely has a tab for Performance. Under this tab users can view their statistics on re-tweets, clicks, replies, and reach.
  • Timely’s scheduling algorithm automatically spaces your tweets apart to prevent your account being flooded too quickly.
  • Users can set up email alerts for Timely updates and Timely also sends friendly reminders to let you know you are running out, or are out of, scheduled tweets.
  • Automatic Bit.ly URL shortening tool.
  • Timely offers an unlimited amount of Twitter accounts, with unlimited tweet scheduling, to unlimited team members, for absolutely free.
  • Timely offers paid accounts for users who want 24/7 email support.

How Does Timely Stack Up?

Although Timely appears minimalistic, it is still a full-bodied and highly capable tool for scheduling post to Twitter, Facebook personal accounts,and Facebook Fan Pages. Account setup and additions are a matter of one click integration in all cases, and this tool requires zero getting used to since it is entirely self-explanatory for even the least savvy user.

Alexa does show a significant upswing in users in the past three months and demographics remain with a strongly Hispanic, educated, female user-base. Their US traffic ranking is currently at #5009 and their user’s onsite time shows that many are taking advantage of the zero-cost options that Timely freely provides.

  1. I really should use one of those tools. Maybe Timely?

  2. I will check this out. My only worry is that twitter will block this like they have some many other apps that I have used in the past.
    Thank

  3. I’ve tried some that let me down – this looks better than what I used in the past. Definitely worth a try and thanks for the tip on it!

  4. Might have to try this one out.

  5. Thanks for the review. I’ve heard about Timely. Maybe it’s time to check it out.

  6. Interesting, another scheduling tool, gotta try it out.

    Scheduling is great, but one cannot use a cookie cutter approach for it. It all depends on your audience and the business type. So a tool is as good as your understanding of your audience.

  7. I like this one better than Buffer. You can schedule whatever you want. And it will deliver over time.

  8. Hmmmm interesting, will check it out for a test drive

    I haven’t given this one a try yet

  10. I use Hootsuite and am content with the scheduler they have already built into their tool. But it’s good to know there are other options out there if needed.

    • Hootsuite has a nice scheduling tool built in. But it is a manual scheduling tool that lacks the intelligence of Timely. Timely learns and adapts over time. Hootsuite does not.

  11. How would you compare Timely and Buffer? I’ve been using Buffer (even reviewed it on the site) but am unhappy that you don’t have a “share” option when it posts. But, is there a reason to switch?

    Thanks!

    • Hey Craig,

      Check the source on Timely vs Buffer above. It was a pretty good review of a person who weighed their choices on Timely and Buffer and the reasons he chose Timely in the end!

  12. I would encourage everyone to try out Timely. I have used about all of the available options out. I was using buffer until I found this. If you need crazy bells and whistles this isn’t the one for you, but if you want a very clean UI and basic functioning, for free, with no limit on accounts, this is the one to use!

  13. Sounds good. I think I will give it a try. Thanks for the tips Basil and commenters.

  14. I recently started using Timely and I LOVE IT. Unlike Hootsuite and Tweetdeck, I don’t have to manually select dates and times. And it learns as I go – getting smarter over time.

    Very useful tool to promote my company Find New Customers (http://www.findnewcustomers.com.)
