5 Little known but very useful Twitter Tools

5 Little known but very useful Twitter Tools

There are now hundreds of tools you can get for free. Here is a list of my 5 favorite Twitter tools.

1.Less Friends – The name sounds funny but this is my fave Twitter tool. Who wants “less” friends on Twitter? I do. Why? I went out and grabbled all the people I could to follow but when I got smarter I realized that seeing too many posts makes finding great posts difficult. With Less Friends you can see exactly who is following you and who you are following in one long list. You can easily see who follows you so you know when a direct response will not work.

2. Tweet Scan – a “real time Twitter search” I typed in “Russia” because that was the most important world news to me today. There were hundreds of posts with great resources shown. URL: http://tweetscan.com/

Tweet Beep – it’s like Google Alerts except just for Twitter. Want to see when someone posts about “internet marketing” or the latest movie? Good research possibilities.

4. Twitscoop – What’s hot on Twitter right now – says it all.

5. Twitzer - This is a Firefox extension that let's you put more than 140 characters into your Twitter posts. This can be very useful if you want ot impart information but you don't want your reader to have to visit your blog or website. URL: http://shorttext.com/twitzer.aspx
