How to create and schedule Mastodon threads

To create and schedule Mastodon Threads with Publer:

Go to Create page and select Mastodon on the left.
Start composing a new post.

Add a spoiler or warning to your post (optional).
Specify the language of the Mastodon post (optional).
Click on Make a thread to start creating your thread/reply.

Tap on the follow-up comment icon.

Toggle on the button Make a thread.
To delay the first post of the thread, enable Add a delay, and specify it.

To continue adding posts to the thread, click the small + icon below the comment: Add another reply.

If you enable Add a delay then you can decide when the second post of the thread will be posted, based on the previous post.
To add media, simply click on Click to upload media and choose the media you want to add.

Once you have finished creating the follow-up comments and your thread is ready, simply click on Save and proceed with scheduling the post accordingly.

You can also preview what the Mastodon thread will look like when it's posted.

Keep in mind:

You can add up to 25 posts in a Mastodon thread.
You can specify the language of the Mastodon post and also add a spoiler or warning (optional).
Each follow-up comment/reply is customizable with text formatting tools, emojis, hashtag suggestions, and media files.
Each follow-up reply will have a 500 character limit. Publer will notify you by highlighting the text that's surpassed the limit.
Each follow-up reply will get shared after the previous one. For example, you can't schedule the third reply of a thread to be posted before the second one.
