TweetDeck: ¿Cómo PROGRAMAR TWEETS para ser publicados EN OTRO MOMENTO?

Voy a darles un ejemplo usándome a mí mismo. Soy de leer mi timeline (línea de tiempo de Twitter) a altas horas de la noche. Muchas veces mientras la reviso, se me ocurren nuevos tweets para compartir. Sin embargo, publicar un tweet a las 2 o 3 de la mañana, es condenarlo al fracaso, ya que la mayoría de las personas, están durmiendo. Ergo, el tweet será leído solo por algunos noctámbulos como yo. En cambio, si en lugar de publicarlo en el mismo momento que lo escribo, digamos 2 de la mañana, lo escribo y lo programo para que salga publicado a las 11 de la mañana, mientras estoy trabajando y ocupado con otras cosas, la cantidad potencial de lectores (o audiencia potencial del tweet) se incrementa notablemente. Es decir, dejo todo planificado y programado para que algo que redacté en un horario marginal y en el cual estoy tranquilo y relajado, salga publicado en un “Horario Principal” (en televisión diríamos “Prime Time”) en donde hay mucha gente conectada a Twitter (a pesar de que yo esté reunido con clientes o colegas, tratando otros temas).

Tiempo atrás escribí un TIP sobreTWEETDECK y cómo esta aplicación nos permitía “disfrutar a Twitter en serio”. Describí muchas de sus ventajas y varios lectores de Adrian Tips optaron por usar TweetDeck como plataforma preferida a la hora de twittear. Hoy vamos a sacarle un poco más de provecho a TweetDeck, aprendiendo cómo twittear “en diferido”, o dicho de otro modo, cómo escribir un tweet en un momento y programarlo para que salga publicado en otro momento.

Esta función llamada “schedule this update” (algo así como “agendar este tweet”) es sumamente útil, ya que nos permite escribir uno o varios tweets y decidir con precisión en que fecha y horario queremos que los mismos salgan publicados.

11 Ways to Speed Up WordPress

WordPress (WordPress) is inherently fast, and that’s why so many professional bloggers call it their choice platform.

Like many new bloggers, I used to think that until I had enough traffic to make a difference, I’d worry about the bandwidth and site speed later. But that’s not thinking ahead considering that today social media can drive an overwhelming amount of traffic in a very short period of time; you don’t want to get caught with a crashed site.

When you’re not prepared for lots of traffic, it’s common for a web host to suspend your account temporarily, and that’s something you don’t want. If your writing is decent and you’ve been doing some minimal promotion, then it could happen to you. Think positively and prepare your blog as though it’s going to be a huge success. To do that, here is a tutorial on how to speed up your WordPress site.

Note: As always, with everything, you should backup your WordPress installation before making any code changes.
