Schedule tweets via email

I often use a variety of different apps on iOS for looking at tweets - flipboard, tweetmag etc., and I'd love to be able to schedule tweets by emailing links from these apps to whatever address and have them schedule in Hootsuite.

For example, the email topic would be Tuesday, 10am, and the content of the email would be the Tweet. If the tweet was more than 140 characters it would be automatically shortened with ow.ly - any links in the post would also automatically be shortened with ow.ly

Thanks for your consideration.

        +1 -- this would be a great feature, especially for collaborators. Others could email the tweet / post without needing to log in to the front-end, and the admin could approve.

        I agree! Need to be able to schedule posts via email (fb too!), otherwise I'm using buffer for that...

        This is the only missing feature that prevents me from using Hootsuite as my killer social app. In the meantime, I am using Buffer + Hootsuite. A total +1 for this.
