Let me start with my own habit, when I start reading news, I use a feed reader and in that short span of hr, I read like 100+ posts and many of them I find interesting and want to share with my followers on Twitter or Facebook. But, this is not a wise idea to send out lots of tweets in a short span. Too many noise may irritate your genuine followers, and you might not like to lose a real follower.

You can define time-slot for Tweets, and tweets will be sent in particular time slot from your buffer.
