WOW! Have you noticed how many Twitter tools are out there in Twitter space? It seems like there is a new Twitter tool coming out everyday!
I was starting to get confused on all of the tools popping up, so in an effort to help you keep track of all of the Twitter tools and what they do, I have outlined some of them below…most of them are free to use.
Here we go . . .
Twitter – This is the home of Twitter which you should most definitely have an account with. Try to get your name as this is the world of social marketing and you want to brand yourself. If you can’t get your full name as the username, get creative . . . eg. itsSheri or CreateWithSheri or AskSheri
TweetLater – Now called Social Oomph. You will find lots of features with this and it is one you will want to use. You can schedule future tweets, automatically follow those who follow you, automatically unfollow those who unfollow you, track keywords, automatically send “welcome” direct messages to those who follow you (hint: make sure you don’t spam with your business – just put a friendly message and say “let’s connect on Facebook” and put your Facebook link in your message.)
Search.Twitter – This is an excellent search tool by entering a keyword to pull up the tweets that have that keyword in it. A great way to find people to follow! This tool deserves its own video!
TweetDeck – This is a personal browser for staying in touch with what’s happening now, connecting you with your contacts across Twitter, Facebook and more. TweetDeck shows you everything you want to see at once so you can stay organized and up to date.
Twellow – This is the Twitter “Yellow Pages”. It is a directory of public Twitter accounts, with hundreds of categories and search features to help you find people. This is a great resource to find people who you want to follow in your niche.
Twollow – This tool allows you to automatically follow people based on keywords. Very useful for niche marketing.
BubbleTweet – Say hello to your followers with a BubbleTweet – It pops up when someone goes to your Twitter page and looks like a bubble that surrounds your short video to say “hi”.
VidTweeter – Share videos with your Twitter followers the easy way! VidTweeter enables you to play all types of videos “ON TOP” of your Twitter messages.
TweetGlide – Coming Soon. Helps you to stay organized, allows you to post sponsored ads by earning credits, allows you to use more than 140 characters. Watch the video for more information.

TweetBacks – Customizable free Twitter backgrounds.
MyTweetSpace – More cutomizable free Twitter backgrounds.
If you become a Twitter maniac, here is a site that lists a ton of other Twitter tools – be careful, and don’t get too wrapped up in the tools.
So, there you have it, a long list of Twitter tools!
Make sure you check back, as I will add any new ones that I come across …. And if you find any that are your favorites that I have missed, make sure you leave me a comment so that I can add it….
