Twitter Tools

Twitter tools come in many forms and functions. They also come and go. Also remember that Twitter tends to change the rules on tweets often and unannounced many times. Usually, unfortunately you find out about them with a suspension of your account. We can do much to prevent this, but sometimes what they offer them selves or even invite by allowing thing conflict. The other bad news is that talking to anyone about these things with a live person is nearly impossible, and nearly really means nada.

Below are tools assembled from daily searches, tweets, blogs, postings, finds etc. I try to look at each tool to see what its use is, and in fact use a number of them. But I also loose track of them, and sometimes they go away. If you have success with any please share, that’s how we all get the most out of Twitter. ALSO if any of these no longer work, or are a bad deal let me know.

Lastly Twitter has been getting a bad rap of sorts, and some are saying it is next to go or be bought. This has been that way for a fairly long time in my opinion. I think Twitter has a function for your business. The feed goes by very quickly and you will miss Tweets as well as your customers will miss your tweets which is why its important to tweet a number of times per say and at key times. That’s what some of the tools below do.

I am now focusing on the tools in the Social Media world on my LinkedIN page as well as a couple of Facebook Pages that focus on particular themes.

****As I update these I am finding many have moved to a PAID MODEL. Many of these have been on the list from the early days of Twitter, but now have Free Periods, after which you need to pay, or the Free version is limited. I have in the past avoided listing paid for … but now find many good services in these. There are still free ones, and I look all the time. Make sure you try the paid ones out before setting things up. Some take a lot of effort to do so.
