This post originally published on May 15, 2013. We’ve updated it here with the latest, newest information, screenshots, and videos. 

The retweet function has been a favorite way of ours to give appreciation and acknowledgment to the tweets we love. And we’ve often wondered: What happens when we love a lot of tweets? Or when we find an awesome tweet at an odd hour?

Being able to schedule your retweets gives you an awesome opportunity to show your support and engagement for other people’s tweets—without ever flooding your followers with too much content.

As we built out the Buffer product, the ability to schedule retweets was one item that consistently rose to the top of our feedback forum. And when we brainstormed this feature internally as part of our social media management suite of tools, we wanted to achieve something very unique: The ability to schedule a retweet, no matter which app, web, or mobile client you are using.

We think we’ve found a really great solution to this. Let’s take a look how you can make use of a scheduled retweet.

Here’s a quick video we put together about how the scheduled retweet works.


How to schedule native retweets from the web

First up is scheduling retweets from the web. This is super easy and works with the click of a button.

The first thing you need is the free Buffer browser extension. It’s available for Chrome, Firefox, Safari, and Opera.

The extension lets you quickly schedule and share any page you’re browsing by simply clicking a button (or pressing a keyboard shortcut). It also integrates directly with a number of websites, including Twitter.

The Buffer browser extension adds a Buffer button to each tweet. Now, whenever you are seeing something that’s worth sharing on Twitter, you can simply click the Buffer button to schedule:

buffer button twitter

It’ll give you the chance to easily schedule the retweet from that Twitter account. Click the Buffer button, and you’ll see your options for adding the retweet to your queue.

You can schedule the retweet for multiple accounts by selecting your chosen accounts from your list:

If you want, you can easily change the tweet to the old school “RT @username: Text of the tweet” format. If you hover over the retweet, hit the “change to quote” button:

change to quote

Once you’ve selected the accounts where you want to share the retweet and once you’ve chosen the format of the retweet, you can share to your Buffer queue however you deem best

  • Adding the retweet to end of your queue (Add to Queue)
  • Adding the retweet to the front of your queue (Share Next)
  • Sharing the retweet right away (Share Now)
  • Scheduling the retweet for a specific time (Schedule Post)

buffer sharing options

And that’s it! Fill up your Buffer with as many retweets as you want. Oh and you can of course also do this for multiple Twitter accounts at the same time. Grab our Awesome Plan or Business Plan if you want to have more than 10 accounts connected and then add retweets to wherever you see fit.

Schedule retweets from your favorite Twitter app

For those using iOS8 or higher on the iPhone or the iPad, you can now publish native retweets via Buffer, through other apps.

Let’s say you’re browsing your Tweetbot app for the latest news. You spot a tweet you’d love to share.

Now you can share this tweet as a retweet and add the retweet into your Buffer queue—all without ever leaving the original Tweetbot app.

It’s the same functionality you’d find on a desktop/laptop browser, using our Buffer browser extension. Now, you can enjoy this cool tool from the comfort of your favorite Twitter app!

Here’s a quick GIF that we put together to show this functionality in action.

retweet from tweetbot

For Android, you’ll find similar native retweet options from apps like Twitter. When you find a tweet you’d like to share, you can tap the Share icon and then tap Add to Buffer. This will bring up the option to add to your Buffer queue, and you can further edit the retweet to share it as a quote with the “RT @username: Text of the tweet” text.

Schedule retweets via email from mobile Twitter apps on Android or iOS

Now that you are scheduling retweets from all around the web, we’ve also got another cool way for you to do so: From anywhere on mobile, whether Android or iOS.

The way this works is super simple: You email the Tweet to your secret Buffer email address. That’s it. You can grab your secret Buffer email from here:

Get your secret Buffer email address

Here is what mine looks like:

schedule recurring retweets

You can also save your Buffer secret email address to your Android or iOS contacts. In the Buffer iOS app, you do this directly by accessing App Settings > Set up Buffer by Email > Buffer by Email. Simply hit “save” and the contact will be added as “Buffer” to your address book:

buffer ios email

Now, whenever you are browsing in any of your favorite Twitter clients, maybe the official Twitter app, TweetBot or others, just hit “mail Tweet” and you can add it to your Buffer queue. Here is an example of the official Twitter app:

schedule recurring retweets

All you have to do is send it to your secret Buffer email address and you are all set with another great retweet scheduled in your queue:

schedule retweets

Over to you

I hope you get a chance to give the new retweet scheduling a try. Grab our browser extension and give it a go on

Over to you now. We’d love to hear what you think of the new retweet scheduling. Let us know how you use it and how we could improve it for you!

  • Fantastic! Was talking to a colleague about how awesome it would be to schedule retweets!

    • LeoWid

      awesome, so glad you were just talking about this and we could build it now Ash! 🙂

  • Cool. Just done it. It works. Neat – as ever! Go well. martin

    • LeoWid

      Awesome, great you have it a shot and it’s working well, thanks Martin!

  • Thanks Leo, Joel and team.

    This is indeed a huge and highly useful improvement.

    I’ve also seen on Buffer forum a real need for users to integrate “Buffer ReTweet” into clients such as TweetDeck. Is this in your short-term plans?

    Thanks again.

  • This is really awesome, I’ve been waiting for this feature for a while.

    Keep up the good work team Buffer! 🙂

    • LeoWid

      Hi Oguz, thanks for the wait indeed, so glad you like this one! 🙂

  • Nice one; thanks.

    • LeoWid

      so glad you like it Hidde!

  • Baadier Sydow

    Keep up the great work!

    • LeoWid

      Thanks Baadier!

  • I was doing a lot of retweet Buffering via email on my iPhone but this is a good improvement for desktop users. Thanks!

    • LeoWid

      Hi Tadas, awesome, so glad this is useful! 🙂

  • Dmitrijs

    Would appreciate to be given an option weather to choose twitter native or old school RT by default, so if I want to use only RT I would not have to hover every retweet I want to change.

    • LeoWid

      Hi Dmitrijs, that’s a great idea, we definitely want you to allow to change that so you don’t have to change it every time!

      • Dmitrijs

        That would be awesome, Leo.
        Thanks for response!

  • Love it!!

    however, being from NEOhio we’ve had school shootings and now rescued girls in the news in past year, top that with boston bombings and I’d still love, love, love, love a PAUSE ALL or STOP ALL posts button.

    We have 17 clients (2 Awesome Buffer Accts to manage them all) and after boston bombings we forgot to turn on that one day of the week for one client. Completely our fault but a STOP ALL POSTS button would be less time consuming. And a RESUME ALL POSTS would be great too.

    I realise these are first world problems, but if you’re asking for our top new function for y’all to have, that would be it.

    Thanks and keep up the great work!

    • Jumping in here to second this. One button to trigger appropriate pauses based on real world events/circumstances would be tremendous.

      Nothing more awkward than scheduled posts doing a slow roll through a sh*t storm.

    • This is a great idea – I actually thought of this in the context of Buffer and Hootsuite during a recent negative news cycle. To take this one step further would be to offer the ability to auto pause all activity when there is breaking negative news. I realize this might become more subjective, but if there is a shooting somewhere or a bombing or the president gets caught cheating on his wife, there could be a setting that allows for you to auto pause all activity during this news event.

      • joshharcus

        One of my friends is developing an api tie in for CEO’s to have the ‘magic button’. This would give a top leadership the ability to Pause all auto posting tools. Great for large agencies during national/global crisis events.

    • On mine, I just hit “new posting schedule” and it turns off the Mon – Sun schedule, if I want to pause. To return, I click the original schedule.

      • Never thought of that. Good to know! May be a good stop gap til they figure this out. They’ve been advising us to just un-highlight the day of the week the breaking news hits.

        However, again, a 1st world problem, it’d be easier to just hit one STOP ALL button instead of going through all 17 accounts to do what they and you are advising.

        Thanks again!

    • Many times I would have loved a “stop” button on my smartphone. Looks bad sometimes when slow news is being posted at the same time as breaking news. This is actually an urgent feature.

    • I’ll give a hearty “Amen” to this request too. A major benefit of social media is instantaneous connection. The pause would facilitate that and make Buffer more effective.

    • Agreed, my bland review of a book I read got posted right after the Pope was elected. & I tweet Catholic stuff.

    • I completely agree. We ran into the same issues after the Boston Marathon (and have had similar situations elsewhere). While my company makes every effort to ensure that this does not happen, we’re only human. A pause button would be especially appreciated because the content used was not inappropriate, just the timing.

    • Thanks so much for sharing this! I agree, a pause button or stop/start button would be really handy. Just wanted to share that you can offer ideas on what you’d like to see at our UserVoice page here:

  • the “schedule tweet by email” method requires the tweet’s link in the email body. Correct?

    • LeoWid

      Hi Liew, yep, that’s correct! You shouldn’t need to do any formatting however, if you just hit “mail this Tweet” and then send it, we will take care of the rest!

      • soyDelia

        That doesn’t work for me. The format that the email has doesn’t change when it appears in Buffer.

  • Go team Buffer! Leo, do you think you’ll be adding the ability to schedule tweets at a certain time? That is the only feature, for me, that Buffer is missing. (aside from G+ not releasing their API)

    • LeoWid

      Hi Peggy, so great to see you here (it seriously makes my face light up every time I see you comment) and that’s a great question. Fortunately we’ve got plans to launch a individual scheduling feature in the future! I’ll be sure to let you know asap once we have it ready.

      And G+, as you say, hopefully comes soon when the API is released! 🙂

      • Hey Leo,
        Hooray! I’ve been patiently waiting for specific scheduling. Awesome!

        I know G+ is the holdup on getting the API.

        Thank you for all the continued Buffer innovations, I couldn’t manage everything I do without Buffer. 🙂

    • Or Leo, you could add a few more more advanced email commands like @postnext. This would allow me to maintain my regular Buffer schedule.

  • Cool feature addition guys.

    • LeoWid

      Hi Scott, so glad you like it! 🙂

  • This is bloody genius.

    • LeoWid

      thanks so much Stephen! 🙂

  • Steve Birkett

    Nice work folks, the Buffer experience continues to get better and better… feels like we should be paying you more?! If you’re ever in NYC, the beer or java is on me 😉

    • LeoWid

      Hi Steve, thanks for all the kind words and so glad you like the improvements! Will give you a shout once we’re in NYC! 🙂

  • Good job. I’ve wanted this for a long time. Now, how about doing the same with replies?

    • LeoWid

      Hi David, so glad you like this! Oh and for replies, that’s a good one and definitely on our list! 🙂

  • Noticed this a couple of days ago, but is this just Chrome at the moment? Any intentions to offer the same for Opera?

  • i’m confused. I’ve been doing this since I started on Buffer a couple of months ago. In Hootsuite, I click on the Time via (9:08 via Twitter) under the name of the tweeter and it always pulled up the retweet page that allowed me to schedule the retweet. The only difference now is, i have to take an extra step and click “change to quote,” EVERYTIME, which is kind of a pain.

    • I agree this doesn’t work for me either it makes for more work. 🙁

      • LeoWid

        Hi Wayne and HD, thanks so much for the heads up on these, that’s definitely something we want to enable as a settings in the future, just forwarded this to our product team!

        • I’m also confused by this post. I’ve been scheduling RTs for a long time and adding them to one or both of my Twitter accounts as well as LinkedIn account. What’s really new here?

  • merci pour cet info

  • Pretty nice update! Thanks for rolling it out! Excited to give it a spin today.

    I too would like a pause all option for crisis situations.

    Keep on rolling out a kick-butt product!


    • LeoWid

      Awesome, thanks Doc, let us know how it goes! 🙂

  • Scott

    Apologies if this has already been covered… I have multiple Twitter accounts set up in Buffer. When I do the “tweet by email,” how does Buffer know which of my accounts to use? Thanks!

    • LeoWid

      Hi Scott, great to hear from you and that’s a good one. If you follow this guide you can include multiple profiles with this guide:

  • “You can also save your Buffer secret email address straight from the Buffer Android or iPhone app. Simply hit “save” and the contact will be added as “Buffer” to your address book:”

    How can I do this from Android? :O

    • LeoWid

      Hi Fedelosa, that’s a good question and I just realised that was actually my mistake, adding the email address on Android isn’t quite possible yet, but we hope to push out an update with this soon!

      For now, you can manually add the email address from here:

  • Love what you guys are doing at Buffer. Ready to use the scheduled retweets right away. How can I buy the ReTweet T-Shirt??

    • LeoWid

      Hi Barish, ha, that is an awesome question! Actually, not quite sure where to buy the t-shirt, I found this as a stock-photo! 🙂

  • I’ve been using this quite a bit. 🙂 Keep up the awesomeness!

    • LeoWid

      Thanks Alice, so glad you’ve been using it. 🙂

  • Thanks all of the hard work is greatly appreciated.

    • LeoWid

      so glad it is helpful! 🙂

  • Great feature, I just signed up for the premium account the other day. Awesome!

    • LeoWid

      amazing, so great to have you on board Tony! 🙂

  • Chris Pedersen

    A friend introduced me to Buffer a few weeks back. Love Love Love it! Thanks for adding even another cool feature.

    • LeoWid

      Wow, that is so great to hear, big thanks to your friend Chris and so glad to have you on board now! If we can ever help with anything, please let me know! 🙂

  • Big thumbs up guys – love this new feature – a very welcome addition 🙂

    • LeoWid

      that’s awesome to hear Lilach, thanks for the shout!

  • This is great. Just tried it. It was super easy and simple to set up. Way to go on this! I think I’ll be buffering more this way!

    • LeoWid

      yay, so glad it worked well Adam!

  • petey

    This is cool, hope you can get it to work with Echofon on the iPhone. Seems the way they format “Mail this Tweet” is not compatible with your parsing..

  • petey

    Also would be nice if we could restrict retweets to only go onto twitter. I do a lot of retweets but don’t want those noising up facebook or linkedin.. Thanks!

  • The Opinionista

    Just tried it from web. Super Easy. Will you add this feature to Twitterrific?

    • LeoWid

      Hi Opinionista, that’d be awesome! Twitterific is slick and it makes perfect sense to Buffer from there. You’re not the first to mention it. We hope to make it happen soon, but if you want to help us and improve the chances of us making it happen, it’d be great if you reach out to Twitterific directly (best to Tweet them: and tell them how much you want Buffer inside Twitterific If you mention us (@bufferapp) as well, we can jump in and say we’d like to make it happen. It’s a much stronger signal for other apps if it comes from loyal users.

  • Nice! Thanks.

  • Happy news Leo and the Buffer team. Thanks!

    • LeoWid

      thanks Lisa, so glad you like it! 🙂

  • Love this! This is a step in the direction I was hoping Buffer would take. By implementing scheduling thought the various networks, life will become easier and Buffer will become even more essential in my social management toolbox. Thanks for this!

    • LeoWid

      So glad to hear it LB, thanks for stopping by! 🙂

  • This is cool and all – but scheduling retweets is added before the many, many time requested ability to simply schedule tweets for specific times? Is that EVER coming?

    • LeoWid

      Hi Andru, thanks so much for stopping by! That’s awesome to hear and yes, specific scheduling is very high up on our list, hopefully we can have this ready for you real soon! 🙂

  • Don’t quite understand – the retweet form seems to me worse in every way than the quoted retweet? And – I was excited to come to this post because I thought you meant that we could now *schedule* messages – for a specific time and day! Please?

    • LeoWid

      Hi Ben,

      Thanks so much for stopping by and for this amazing feedback, that’s really helpful. We definitely have individual scheduling very high up on our list, hopefully we can launch this soon!

      Regarding “quote” retweets, this is fortunately still possible, you can just hover over it and then click on “change to quote” to get the old school retweets back. 🙂

  • what happened to the quoted retweet that you could edit? does that feature still exist?

    • LeoWid

      Hi there, yes, it still exists! You can just hover and click on “change to quote” and it’ll be just like before! 🙂

  • Ramo

    Buffer should have more payment options……..

  • lol

    i love this app..but i think 10 limit it’s too scant.

  • This feature is not working for me…

    • LeoWid

      Hi Kate, oh no, that’s no good, is there any chance you could let me know what the issue is? Really keen to get it working for you! 🙂

      • Hi Leo! I have no idea what the issue is. When I click on the Buffer button it automatically goes to the “RT” format. It’s really bumming me out because I would love this new feature.

        • LeoWid

          Hi Kate, oh no, that’s no good. Is there any chance you could let me konw how you are using it, is it from the web extension? If so, which browser are you using? Keen to fix this for you!

          • Kate Tilton

            Web extension for Safari. I deleted and downloaded it again and it seems to be working now. I do have bugs with the extensions now and then but thankfully it’s been better!

      • tollie

        Leo, sending an email via TweetBot, for me, resulted in an automatic “we couldn’t post. please specify an account” message.

        My assumption would have been that the default account would have been used, as only one twitter account is posted to by default.

        I guess that’s not quite a bug, but (a) please continue to push for integration with TweetBot, et al. Tweetings is crap. (b) Now I have to go learn the email syntax.

        – @tollie (tried to sign in using twitter, but the callback seemed to fail)

  • I have around 13,000 followers and mostly retweet for my retweet list. The list is a column in Tweetdeck but Buffer won’t seem to work with Tweetdeck. Are there plans to make it so?

    • LeoWid

      Hi Chandler, thanks so much for the comment, that’s a great point, unfortunately, it’s not quite possible do within TweetDeck, this is definitely something we are looking into though, I hope we can have this working in the future for you! 🙂

  • This is what the people wanted! Congrats on this Buffer enhancement!

    • LeoWid

      So glad you like it James! 🙂

  • Yay!

  • Awesome! good job guys!

  • Yeah! Giving the community what they want. Love it. Thanks Buffer team.

  • Some really cool new features! Awesome!

  • Great stuff guys!

  • Buffer, I official love you. This is awesome. Thank you very much from a VERY happy customer!

    Shaula @TheBlackBoard

  • Really liking this new feature! Being able to use it within TweetDeck would be a great next step.

    Other things I would like from Buffer:

    – ability to schedule a tweet for a a specific date and time.

    – ability to have a bank of tweets (any number of them) of information that’s worth refreshing from time to time, and having those schedule in rotation at a selected number per day, in either a selected order or random order. If in random order, the system should remember the most recent use and observe some minimum amount of time before including it again in rotation.

  • You guys rock

    • LeoWid

      thanks Martin! 🙂

  • Is it possible to install the browser extension to Safari on an iPad? And we can’t make or amend our lists from iPad either?

    Also would it be possible in future to tweet all members of a list using a single @username? It would be some much easier to keep everyone informed without having to enter individual @usernames.

    Great product and we will be upgrading soon :))

  • Am I missing something? Surely *sheduling* allows us to pick a day/time for the post? I don’t see how to do this, only add more into my buffer queue.

  • Tremendous stuff guys. I wanted to let you know the schedule native retweets via email from Tweetbot on iOS works perfectly, but it doesn’t work when emailing from Tweetbot for Mac. Maybe it doesn’t recognise minor formatting differences? Thanks for your help.

  • Love it, just a quick note: Be sure to keep doing what you’re doing – it’s a great service. Continue making the service better just as you are & don’t try to become a social network or a video sharing tool etc… So many other services dilute their main service and become confusing messes…

  • Hi Leo,

    I’m pleased for you that so many people like your new feature. However, I have tried many times to get answer to my question and have even left you several messages but never heard back.

    Here’s the question again: what is it that Buffer can do that you can’t do in Hootsuite with their Autoschedule.

    I would love to know.

    • LeoWid

      Hi Jorgen,

      Great to see you here and thanks for the awesome comment. That’s a good question, I think it’s mostly a question of preference, as Buffer is a more lightweight solution and focuses just on sharing.

      One thing we tried to do is offer lots of integrations with other apps (check them out here I hope these might be helpful to Buffer from anywhere!

      Let me know if I can help with anything else.

  • SD

    Please include a Pause button. Scheduling tweets is not super easy. One has to create multiple profiles – which is a workaround and not a direct solution.

    • LeoWid

      Hi SD, great idea, we should definitely do that! 🙂

  • Great job you guys! This is all so exciting!

    A few thoughts:

    Can you every see integration with my favorite Twitter app, Tweetbot? It seems like the two of you would work really well together.

    In addition to scheduled posts (which I understand you’re working on), I would love to see a sort of “smart buffer” system. It would be great if Buffer would look at my public tweets (not @replies) and buffer all my scheduled tweets according. That means that if I tweeted an unscheduled post through the native Twitter app (probably some real-time update), Buffer would see that and wait a predetermined amount of time before sharing my next tweet.

    • LeoWid

      Hi Brandon,

      Great idea! Tweetbot is slick and it makes perfect sense to Buffer from there. You’re not the first to mention it. We hope to make it happen soon, but if you want to help us and improve the chances of us making it happen, it’d be great if you reach out to Tweetbot directly (best to Tweet them: and tell them how much you want Buffer inside Tweetbot If you mention us (@bufferapp) as well, we can jump in and say we’d like to make it happen. It’s a much stronger signal for other apps if it comes from loyal users.

  • I know I’ve already been using my Buffer more than my Hootsuite (Sh!) and these changes just continue to make me love the service. I would love to also request a “pause” feature — that makes a lot more sense than altering the day anytime we need to change it in case of problems now.

    I LOVE, love, love the new way of Rting or “quote”ing – I actually do this right from the Twitter site with my Buffer Chrome app and love being able to just RT some and add text to others. Also, since I use Buffer within Feedly I love that is enabled on the web version of – would love to see it integrated easier within their Android app if possible.

    Can’t wait until you are able to add Google+ and even Pinterest 😀 Keep up the awesome work!

  • Where do you get the buffer email address on the Android app?
    How does buffer know which Twitter account to RT from for Tweet by Email?

    • LeoWid

      Hi Jordan, great to hear from you, that’s a great point and unfortunately it doesn’t quite work from Android yet to get the email in-app.

      You can however easily get the email address from here and then email it to yourself or add to your contacts on Android. Hope that might help – a better way to do this is coming real soon! 🙂

      • Thanks Leo for the quick reply. The other question was, I have multiple Twitter accounts hooked to my Buffer account (b/c I’m on the Awesome Plan :). How does RT/Tweet by email know which account to use?

        • LeoWid

          Hi Jordan, ah yes, another great one! So we actually have special commands that help you to target certain accounts specifically, you can mention @p in the email for example and then the account. Here is more I hope that helps! 🙂

  • Taradino C.

    I’m using the Firefox extension and I don’t seem to have the option to do native retweets – when I click Buffer under a tweet, it always comes up in old-school “quote” form.

  • Beautiful! This is the one feature that seems to be lacking across the board and I’m glad to see buffer leading the way. This is by far my favorite service for managing social media because of it’s slick fire and forget nature. You guys are doing an excellent job of integrating with all the major APIs/services and I think Buffer is quickly becoming the new bar by which all SM management services are gauged against.

    Kudos on the great move and keep up the fantastic work!

  • finally! awesome. I ♥ the work you’re doing @Bufferapp – thx!

  • Excellent! I have been wanting something like this for a long, long time now 🙂

    Now, can we get a pause button? Pretty please?

  • Albert Freeman

    Using the mail option from my iPhone, the retweet has ended up scheduled in my Facebook account, not my Twitter account. How can I stop this happening, and ensure the retweet is scheduled in the correct account?

  • Hey guys – love the service. However, I am having trouble doing this using twitterific for iPhone. Every time I use the “Mail Tweet” function in Twitterific it sends to buffer, but only includes the subject (e.g. Tweet from @mikeskiff) without any content. Any idea why this works for some twitter clients and not others on mobile?

  • cabingoddess

    Great idea but it does not work 🙁 My buffer hates me lately and I cannot buffer any of what I try to retweet using the button!

  • ClaudiaCane

    Not working. I use Tweetdeck and there is still no option to buffer and when I click on the buffer symbol next to safari I only get a pop to tweet that you can now retweet with buffer. Frustrated.

    • carokopp

      Hi Claudia! Oh no, so sorry we’ve given you such headache here. I’m afraid we’re not integrated with Tweetdeck, but it should work in the browsers like Safari. Maybe we could try re-installing the extension? (Apologies if you already tried that!) Would you be up for visiting and re-installing it there, and see if that works any better? If not, let us know and we’ll keep digging! Thanks for reaching out on this and giving us an opportunity to make this right. 🙂 Really appreciate that, Claudia!

  • Hi Leo,
    I use this feature and LOVE it. It’s part of my daily tweeting schedule. Thank you for all the fabulous updates.
