There’s a good chance you know what Twitter threads are by now.
They’re a super hot format within the startup, tech and entrepreneurial community. You’ve probably seen a lot of them in your feed.
However, it’s not just startup or tech people though. Threads have now become widely adopted across a wide range of other industries and thought leaders.
I mean, I’ve seen the likes of popular vegan bloggers write awesome threads, to NFT enthusiasts talking about the latest drops.
They’re a popular format that anyone, from any industry, can start using.
There are a few reasons why:
I’ve personally seen many people who have grown their followings in just a matter of months from a follower count in only the 100’s and low 1000’s, who end up sharing on average a thread per day to get to a follower count level to over 100,000+ followers.
Yes, in literally months.
Not to mention, I’ve seen crazy numbers of threads that even receive over 10,000 retweets. If you get your content game right, it could reap huge rewards.
When researching and exploring each of them, consider a few things:
These are the main things to think about.
Sweet, let’s get into them.
If love Notion like me, you’re going to love Queue. For those who don’t know about Notion, it’s a project management (as well as a life management platform in my case) that lets you write notes, plan tasks, manage files, set reminders, save documents, and stay organised with your files and assets. Where Queue comes in is that it’s a Twitter scheduling tool that integrates directly with Notion.
This solution comes with a free plan that’s limited to 10 tweets and 2 threads per month, and only you can edit your tweets.
However, you can get access to the personal pro, team, and enterprise paid plans, which offer unlimited tweets and threads and real-time analysis along with other amazing features.
With a personal pro and team plan, you can expect to pay $9 and $19 per month billed “annually”. For the enterprise plan, you need to get a quote from the team.
Tweet Hunter is not one of your typical Twitter thread and scheduling tools. It promises to offer more than that. It facilitates you in building relations with your customers/relevant audience, growing brand awareness, staying active on Twitter without having to use it 24/7, and generating content using AI technology.
Tweet Hunter provides you with a 7-day free trial and a 30-day refund policy.
If you wish to continue, you will be required to pay $49 per month. For accessing AI-writing, the cost rises to $99 per month.
However, you can also get huge discounts depending on your follower size. Simply authorise Tweet Hunter to access your Twitter account to unlock discounts.
Typefully is one of the most popular options for creators, tech and startup folk on Twitter. It allows you to write your tweets and threads in a clean editing interface, engage with your audience by auto-retweeting and finding the best time to tweet, grow your community with the help of an in-depth analytics feature, and publish your content with one click.
The tool has a freemium version for you to use for creating posts. However, for more advanced options, you will need to upgrade, with plans starting from $8 p/m. If you want to have multiple accounts, there are options at $19 p/m and $39 p/m.
ThreadStart works by letting you focus on what’s more important, like creating top-notch quality content to grow your account and doing the rest of the work for you, i.e., scheduling and posting your tweets/threads at optimal times.
ThreadStart plan starts by offering you a 7-day free pro trial which transforms into a free plan if you don’t upgrade.
The free plan limits your functionality as well as data history. However, a pro plan comes with every feature there is to offer at $9 per month or $86 per year.
A premium plan offers almost the same features as a pro account, but with a premium account, you can use up to 3 accounts.
Quick tip: Choosing a yearly plan will be your best here as you will save money every year. ($22 for a yearly pro account and $49 for a yearly premium account).
Chirr App is an all-in-one Twitter thread and scheduling tool that lets you edit published tweets, save tweets/threads, rotate evergreen tweets, and much more.
As soon as you visit its webpage, you are directly shown its homepage interface so you can get familiar with the core power of what Chirr App can offer.
You get to choose between plus, pro, and team accounts, and it costs you $2.5, $12, and $39 per month, respectively. You can always choose to pay annually to save around 20% of your per annum cost.
The plus pricing plan offers you all editor, drafts, and history features. In comparison, the pro account provides additional features like detailed metrics, blitz replies, scheduling, etc., along with the plus features.
The team account gives you access to all features of the pro account, along with permission to add and collaborate with unlimited teammates.
Hypefury is another great tool to support scheduled threads and tweets, therefore, saving you a lot of time and headache.
The founders took inspiration from the best techniques that are used by successful Twitter content creators to help you sell more products, expand your audience, curate new content, and grow your email list.
You will be given access to a 7-day free premium account trial. If you don’t wish to purchase, your account will be automatically switched to the free plan, which comes with basics only.
The paid accounts are standard and premium with $19 and $49 monthly fees, respectively. Although some features are limited with a standard account, you get access to all functions from A-Z with a premium plan.
Thread Creator allows you to write, format, and publish Twitter threads from a clean and wide interface which also comes with a side panel to help you see what they will look like on Twitter. Scheduling and publishing threads are also made hassle-free with an easy-to-access button on the same page where you write.
The standard account is completely free to use but comes with several limitations.
On the other hand, you can purchase the pro account for $15 a month (btw, it’s on discount right now) to access all functions. It comes with a 30-day money-back guarantee if you’re not satisfied with it.
One Up App helps you in scheduling your Twitter threads in advance or even posting them immediately on a user-intuitive interface. It’s as simple as accessing the drop-down menu by “create a post” button. What really sets this platform apart is that you can handle several social media accounts like TikTok, Instagram, Pinterest, and LinkedIn along with Twitter with one plan.
The free tier allows you to schedule a maximum of 3 tweets per thread.
It offers a wide variety of paid plans such as starter, immediate, growth, business, and enterprise at the cost of $18, $30, $60, $150, and $999 per month, respectively.
These various paid plans fulfil the needs of different customers/businesses and offer a 7-day free trial as well.
Zlappo promises to help you build and grow a profitable audience by allowing you to tweet smart. Its features are designed by considering Twitter's best practices, so you can expand your audience rapidly. All you have to do is to use these features and nothing else.
Zlappo features 3 different plans in addition to the 7-day free trial.
You need to pay $12.49 per month for the real G plan, $24.99 per month for the hustler plan, and $83.33 per month for the tycoon plan.
The most popular plan among Twitter users is the hustler plan, as it comes with a plethora of helpful features.
TweetDeck is a Twitter management platform that is owned by Twitter to help you manage your Twitter account in a breeze. It is integrated into Twitter’s interface to make it convenient for you to schedule and publish your tweets.
It’s 100% free and comes with all features mentioned. You only need to have an active Twitter account with which you can log in to TweetDeck to use its services.
For me personally, it has to be Typefully and Chirr App. Both are simple enough to use scheduling your threads takes seconds. You can see what the threads look like as you write them. When it comes to exploring your metrics in further detail, Typefully goes into a bit more detail, but Chir App is still reasonable. If you want deeper metrics and analysis for your Tweets, it’s best to use either ilo or Black Magic.
The short answer is no. Not at present time anyway. You can schedule multiple tweets at once, but it’s not the same experience as you would do with threads. You will need to use a 3rd party tool, such as the platforms mentioned in this article.
If you’re looking for a free solution, your best bet is Thread Creator where you can draft as many threads as you would like, but can only publish once per week on the free version. So, you can prepare and drafts threads to see what they look like, which then you can copy and paste, and then publish via Twitter itself. However, you’re limited on publishing directly from the tool, nor can you schedule in advance. You will need to upgrade to get those features. This is a similar case to the other platforms mentioned.
For me personally, it has to be a close tie between Tweethunter and Typefully. Both have similar core features. Typefully is stronger in terms of UX, the detail of metrics, having the ability to unroll threads, as well as having your own profile of your tweets (like a mini blog). However, Tweethunter has an inspiration library of 2million+ tweets, as well as an ability to add users who engaged with your posts into lists. So, you can use Twitter as your CRM. Pretty cool if you ask me.
There are three that I have mentioned, which are Queue, OneUpApp and Hypefury. Queue integrates directly with Notion. Then, OneUpApp and Hypefury are like many of the other social media scheduling tools that let you publish content across other social networks.
