I like to collect quotes in a spreadsheet and then upload them to Hootsuite to schedule one or two a day for several months. It helps ensure that there is always some activity in my twitter account and that takes the pressure off on days that I don’t find time for social media.  Yeah, that happens!

The other great thing to do with quotes is to open up Canva on your phone and create quick and easy images for twitter, facebook, or instagram.  There are terrific templates available and even tons of free images.
