To see if your account has been activated for this, look for the new audio sound icon, next to the image carousal, as shown in the image below to the far left.

Twitter recently introduced a new feature for scheduling tweets in advance through its browser-based version. This feature was once only available through third-party tools. When using Twitter in a web browser, users will now see an option to schedule a tweet from the composer screen. Users can schedule a tweet at any time of the day up to 18 months in advance. This feature isn’t currently available on Twitter’s official mobile app, but these users should see the scheduling in the near future.
