I'm looking for an app that can schedule tweets for future times, rather than only tweeting now, as Gwibber does. I'm looking for a native Ubuntu app because:

  1. I'd prefer using something that's free software and
  2. Web-apps such as Hootsuite have a limit to how many profiles you can manage before having to pay for their service.

Thanks in advance.

Edited to add: I would like a twitter app that does the above and has a GUI.

There are some command line Twitter clients, like twidge or bti that you can use with at or cron the schedule tweets.

Thanks for the accurate answer. I should have specified I'm looking for something with a GUI. – Jay Feb 18 '13 at 18:38
