Sharing good content engages your Twitter audience, but finding that content and sharing it multiple times a day is a huge time commitment. Edgar helps ease this burden by allowing you to collect and save content, which it will then post for you at scheduled intervals.
With Edgar, you can bank a bunch of relevant tweets that can be recycled, based on however you choose to order them. Categorized by topic or theme, you can schedule tweets to be pumped out according to what is relevant to your business and your followers. Once cued, Edgar will send out your tweets as required, and once it’s out of fresh tweets, it will cycle back into your archives, assuring that your stream remains populated and that good content gets seen by followers who missed it the first time.
