No Time to Twitt Mr Jones?

No Time to Twitt Mr Jones?

One of the most common complaints of Twitter is that one doesn’t have enough time to spend keeping up with their Twitter accounts. They are to busy doing more important things, such as reading our Blog or the “ranked hard, SEO comic“.

Now I can’t blame them for that, but for the rest of you Non Twitter Time Takers, a new solution is made especially for you.

@ShannonCole has come up with TwitResponse an application that allows you to “pre-record” or “pre-type” your twitter messages and have them scheduled to appear to your Twitter Followers at predetermined intervals in the future.

The program is in BETA but works extremely well. The description from their page reads
“Twitter + AutoResponder = TwitResponse!

Setup unlimited messages to be delivered to your twitter page when you want. Need a message sent 2 hours from now, no problem, setup a TwitResponse.

Having a product launch, upcoming seminar, book release… Setup a TwitResponse to automatically notify your followers.

Make sure you register to see the full effects, and then Twit me in advance, something, in the Future to @bigebiz.

Psst.. You might want to Add @ShellHarris to that list, he may not figure it out right away that your message was “pre-typed” but that’s half the fun of isn’t it?
Pssst…. Chris just joined in as well Catch him  @BigOakChris

    Eric, Twittering in advance? My mind is officially blown. Can I tweet 20 years into the future and say hello to myself?

    There are limitations currently to the Program, but I am sure @ShannonCole the developer could make almost anything happen :)

    The question would be what message would you want to hear in 20 years?

    Would you twitt yourself that the Chicago White Soxs won the World Series? Finally?

    I love twitresponse. I use it to preset reminders letting my attendees know when a teleconference is about to start and to post messages to friends in different time zones.

    Actually, yes, you can.

    Creator Shannon Cole is integrating Twitresponse with the “future trends” feature Google discussed April 1, 2008!

    Using it for preset reminders is a great idea, but c’mon, who is really so busy that can’t text message a couple dozen characters in an SMS to twitter?

    I think the reason to use it isn’t that a person is “so busy”, it’s more like “so you won’t forget”.

    The full power of twitter hasn’t hit me yet, but I finally set up an account @BigOakChris.

    If you have a product launch, seminar, or book release won’t it be more useful to blog in details about it? Still not getting the twitter hype.
