Medium announced three new publishing features, which it is rolling out this week.

For one, users can now schedule posts with the new "schedule to publish" feature. You can specify the date and time you want a post to be published, bringing Medium more in line with other blogging platforms.

"Clicking on 'schedule to publish' from this screen will enable you to queue up stories to be published when you want instead of when you have the time," Medium says on its official blog. "You can now set your schedule to publish at peak traffic times and reward your followers with a steady stream of new material released on a more regular basis."

The second new feature lets you connect your Twitter account to your Medium blog. Your Twitter followers who have Medium accounts will automatically become followers of your publication. You can set it up from your publication's about page.

The third feature is the ability to view stats for letters sent through Medium publications. You'll see these when you go the Letters page of your publication.
