In order to schedule a tweet on Twitter.com, just click on a tweet button followed by a click on the three dots in the bottom bar. You’ll then be able to schedule the tweet for a specific date and time.
The feature is currently rolled out to a limited set of beta users. But soon, it will be available to all the users. Twitter did not announce when the feature will be rolled for iOs and Android versions of the app.
The feature was previously spotted by reverse engineer specialist Jane Manchun Wong.
