Select when you would like to post the tweet by using the "Date Selector" tool, which looks like a mini calendar, or by entering the exact "date/day/month/year hour\minute am\pm" in the text field provided.
Click the "Save" button to complete the process. All scheduled tweets appear below the scheduling form and you can edit these by clicking the pen icon.
