  • Pros: 

    free and simple, is better than the original

    Cons: 

    When several people use the same account things go a little weird but not big deal

    Well, I am not joking: i become office hero when i found out this app. We are a small news website in a country with not press freedom, we stay open thanks to donations and else. We were using hootsuite but set a bunch of tweets in the free version took us to much time and energy. Now we post 6 times more tweets with circular and out visit were from 100 to 300+ so our hard work is not wasted.

    I only open account in producthunt to thanks the creator. You have a big product in your hands and its whorty to add things like "post every X mins option" or "post like this the monday, and like this the saturday option" (yes, like in buffer, but free XD).

    Thanks! you can be sure your work is helpingto make a difference in the world.

Thanks for posting my side project @chad_fullerton! I built this in the summer of 2012 (man, time flies :), as I'm a fan of Buffer (poke @joelgascoigne) and wanted to see if I could emulate their MVP while keeping my frontend skills up-to-date. I haven't touched the app very much since 2012, but the product has been working mostly fine in production, and the userbase has constantly grown: close to 100k signed up users now, 10% of which are monthly active. Not bad for a side project! Thanks @jberrebi and @miles_matthias for commenting!

Definitely going to look into this. Buffer is great, but I'm not consistently posting enough to warrant a premium subscription. One month might warrant it, go 3 months with no activity, and then another high use month. Open source rulez.

Really awesome. Just tested it. A lot simpler than Buffer...and doing exactly what I was looking for.
