Schedule Posts without image

Currently the app doesn't allow scheduling only-text twitter posts. I'd like that.

    Thank you for all of your responses! This feature is being planned and will be worked on in the new year. Will provide updates as we come closer to launching.

    This item has been here since 2016, and there is ZERO update on this? I will need to cancel our membership if this feature is not included soon.

    Do it, Later!! Implement this feature!! I got $300 burning a hole in pocket, just for you, as soon as you do.

    But don't do it for the money, do it because it's the RIGHT thing to do.

    Please note that a text only post can and often does contain a URL that provides the image.

    This is the one feature that will keep me from renewing my Later plan. Was told when I signed up (over a year ago) that it was happening soon. Really unfortunate as I still Later is better than other tools, however, this feature is neccessary to articles / links.

    I am baffled that this has not been implemented yet. 516 votes and 104 comments since 2016 and yet we get things like integration of Unsplash as if we don't know how to open another tab and source those on our own.

    ...By the way, the Unsplash idea had 2 votes and was posted in April 2020.

    +1 for this feature.

    Just wanted to post a Youtube video on Twitter. Forgot, it doesn't work. Scratched my head over the fact, that this isn't possible.

    hoping this comes in soon, 90% of my content for facebook doesn't include a photo so later isn't fulfilling my needs. everything else is great

    Yep definitely need to be able to schedule text only posts. Hoping this feature comes in soon! :)

    such a huge bummer not to be able to directly post YouTube videos to Facebook and Twitter...the only thing that holds me back from recommending Later to others without any caveats!
