Allow bulk uploads so lots of tweets can be scheduled with one file upload.
Enable some means to upload a CSV or some other spreadsheet format that would enable scheduling a lot of votes all at once, with one file upload.
I'd like to schedule my posts for the week to send out blast info, and discounts on the social networks.
1) We love having the OPTION to have our PENDING tweets in a STREAM. You
took that away from us and it makes it hard to see in one panel what we have
coming up from one page.
2) WISH LIST: OPTION to BULK schedule - meaning if i have a tweet - i need
the option to put 1 on Monday and 2 on Saturday from within the dashboard.

TWEET AT 11AM FRIDAY
TWEET AT 11AM MONDAY
Let me know if this ever happens and we will sign up again for your paid
plan. Right now that is what we're missing (stream and a way to post
multiple times the FIRST time we enter the tweet) thanks
completed in the latest release. enjoy!
Is there any limit for scheduling tweets for free and paid version?

Hey. I found this while keyword searching for a way to upload scheduled tweets in csv form. Glad to see Hootsuite has discussion happening about this. Any implementations yet??? Ohh kay so if not Hoot Suite, then maybe this TwitteyBot thing? Gotta love the Twitonyms.
Anything ever become of this request? I schedule one tweet a day that I plan out on a spreadsheet (Quotes, greetings, birthday wishes, etc.) and it would be so much more convenient to be able to just load this up directly! The interface is a bit arduous for this.
There are other tools around to do this. I love hootsuite but not for scheduling, its crazy time consuming. Spammers spam anyway, just limit the number of tweets that can be sent.
Anything happen with this? I see the spam argument, but as a (responsible) social media person for a large company, it would make my life easier. Maybe it's a feature you would have to earn to use.
I use Objective Marketer for this, and it works well. Let's you spread posts evenly as you want, and you just copy and paste from a Word doc, text doc, or whatever. Here's there URL: http://www.objectivemarketer.com/ It's not a free app, but good for enterprise or agency application.

Oh no - Please don't do this Hootsuite!

Allowing a bulk upload and the scheduling of tweets would make a lot of business owners lifes a lot easier. At the moment I am like Charlotte and have a spreadsheet with each tweet and have to manually copy this information over and schedule it, and if you want to it go out again its copying and rescheduling which is so time consuming. Being able to upload a CSV file and schedule dates and times would be so much easier, and less time consuming.

My clients like the ability to schedule their tweets on a variety of topics and subjects on a monthly basis in advance. At the moment I currently use an Excel spreadsheet and have to manually bring them over one at a time to hootsuite which can be fairly time consuming.
If somebody is intent on spamming they will do it anyway, I am sure everyone here has been the subject of spam on twitter and that is without the ability to undertake bulk uploads, they will always find a way. However these are in the minority and the majority of users who enjoy and participate on twitter properly should't be penalised becuase of this.
Surely if someone was posting massive amounts of spam Twitter would block them anyway and lock their account? This would help lots of small business owners to pre-post subjects, reminders, events etc.

I understand the issue with Spam. For me it is about creating an editorial calendar in advance, and also it allows me to process my workflow better than admin sharing folders. I can QA, rewrite and insert a message about 1 ever 1:15 minutes. This would allow me to go back and forth with my copy people, and then upload it all in bulk for the upcoming month, those items that my clients want to promote. OH... and I would PAY for this ability... why? Because it would save my business on hours and efficiency of hours every month. Keep this in mind. I can tell you that there is a company out there right now by the name of Involver that already has this ability.
Again... did I mention that I would pay for this? Also... if you made it work with Google Apps... even better. :) Or Zoho... Or Excel :)

We host a weekly twitter party (#healthychild) and have to manually upload about 50 tweets per party. I prep the tweet in a spreadsheet, figuring out the timing behorehand but it would be SO nice if I could just upload a .csv or something.

I currently use a different product that enables me to schedule tweets, but it doesn't allow me to schedule more than 1 tweet within a 6 hour window. That enables 4 tweets a day to be scheduled. I believe that's the perfect way to discourage spam and enable greater productivity. I like hootsuite, but unless I'm able to input a bunch of statuses at one time I don't think I'll be using it very often.
Would love to see this, or the repeat tweet feature implemented. If another service did implement this I would almost certainly switch to them.
Maja Dakic-Brkovic commented
Please, consider allowing bulk uploads for scheduled Tweets. It could be one simple txt file with multiple Tweets in proper syntax. This is much quicker way of inputing the text than using present form on HootSuite.
*** For those people who consider it spamming - Tweets could be of different content!!! !***
(The Tweets shouldn't be recurring, because this is a violation of Twitter's TOS.)
Reynir Jóhannesson commented
Dont add this!
Scheduled tweets to help us sometime when we are offline is one thing... this idea of mass upload is just SPAM.
This would encourage spam. Probably won't get implemented.
Tristan Schon commented
Yes, this is a GREAT idea. Working off-line can be more efficient and time-effective at times.
