Bug Description

Hoping I followed the directions correctly to post a feature request. First off, thanks to everyone on the Gwibber team for spending their time making a great free software application. We really appreciate it.

I want to request the ability to schedule tweets (or the equivalent posting forms on other services) for a specific time. E.g.: It's 11am now but I want to send a particular tweet at 5pm. So I'd like to be able to enter that tweet into Gwibber now, click a button that says "schedule" instead of "send", and then set the time that my tweet is actually sent by Gwibber automatically. Basically a "set it and forget it" kind of deal.

This would be a useful feature for people who are maintaining social media accounts for organizations such as non-profits or businesses. A small organization often wants to maintain a twitter presence every day (if not around the clock), but doesn't have someone whose sole job is to watch the twitter streams. So this would allow someone to basically type in a few tweets at the beginning of the day, rest comfortably knowing that their tweets will be sent at the specified time, and then move on to work on other things.

Thanks for your time reading.

Is there any chance of this getting implemented ever? It's been confirmed but isn't even added to wishlist, over a year later.

What is the status of this feature? It would be nice to have a 'scheduler' for Gwibber, especially to post to Twitter.
