What Twitter Tools and Services Do You Use?

Over the last year there seems to have been a tool or service released for Twitter users every few days. There are:

  • Twitter desktop clients (I’m a fan of Twhirl and TweetDeck)
  • Twitter Applications for iPhone (I’m a user of Twittelator Pro)
  • Twitter user ranking services (like Twitterholic)
  • Visualization tools (like TweetWheel)
  • Tools to import RSS feeds to your Twitter account (I use Twitterfeed)
  • Tools for setting tweets to go off later (Tweetlater)
  • Metrics tool (TweetStatsTwinfluence)
  • Tools for sharing pictures on Twitter (Twitpic)
  • Services to tweet to groups (GroupTweet)
  • Twitter Directories (Twellow)
  • Tools for finding new people to follow (Twubble)
  • Tools for helping you to track Twitter Conversations (Tweet2Tweet)
  • Trend Tracking tools for what’s hot on Twitter (Twitscoop)
  • Tools to help Twitter integrate with other applications (TwitterCal – which lets you add items to your Google calandar by Twitter)
  • Services for groups to tag and organize tweets (HashTags)
  • Twitter updaters (Ping.fm – which allows you to update status on multiple sites like Twitter)
  • Twitter backup services (TweetTake)
  • Services to let you track which links people are clicking on in your Tweets (TweetBurner)

These are just some of the tools services I’ve used in the last few weeks and they only scratch the surface at the hundreds of Twitter tools that are released.

What Twitter Tools and Services do you use? Leave the ones you love in comments below.

I’m looking forward to finding out which ones get mentioned most and finding some new ones that I’d not previously discovered.

    Aira Bongco

    I regularly use ping.fm and Tweetdeck. I rarely use the others.

  • November 5, 2008

    Wow Darren you always fascinate me with your ideas. Nice blog, another blog to look up to. :)

    You’re always an inspiration.

  • November 5, 2008

    I use Twitteriffic on the Mac and iPhone, Twhirl on the Windows Machine, TweetDeck on both to keep track of replies, topics, and trends, and TwitPic to handle all of my images. I also use TinyURL for link shortening, and my tweets are then imported into my SweetCron lifestream, Facebook, and a few other, smaller social networks. Lastly, hashtags keep me organized, and Twitter Search finds me new people to follow.

  • November 5, 2008

    I previously used Tiny Twitter for my Sony Ericsson phone to send. Now I text my messages and only read via Tiny Twitter if I absolutely need to read. It’s very temperamental.

  • November 5, 2008

    I use Twhirl and Twitterfeed mainly, and I’ve made use of some of the Twitter directories before. I’ve also tried (and forgot about) plenty of other services. I use Twitterfeed and Twhirl every day though.

  • November 5, 2008

    Great list, Darren! There are a few here I have not heard of or used, so I’ll want to check those out.

    I adore TweetDeck – I had started with Twhirl, but I find the ability to make groups in TweetDeck to be very helpful.

    I am also lost without Ping.fm – very helpful for posting tweets to a number of services (I post to about 10 different services). I’m most active on twitter though, and post a lot more via TweetDeck directly to Twitter than Ping.fm to all the services.

    I also use Twitterfeed to automatically post from my blog.

    One that wasn’t listed is Qwitter – http://useqwitter.com/ – it will send you an email when someone stops following you, as well as tell you what your last tweet was (which might help pinpoint WHY they dropped you). I usually take the opportunity to return the un-follow.

    Often times, though, I’ll find I’m dropped by the spammers that I was not following in the first place. Makes me wonder if there is a script or service that will automatically un-follow those who are not following you in return?

  • November 5, 2008

    I use the Twitter Tools, the plugin developed by Alex King for crossposting between my wordpress based blog and Twitter.
    In my company blog ( http://www.technicoblog.com ) i don’t show the sidebar widget, but i do that in my personal blog ( http://www.blogobear.com/giorgio ) near the delicious bookmarks.

  • November 5, 2008

    I use the TwitterFox plugin for the Firefox web browser.

  • November 5, 2008

    ✔ I promote my twitter in my email signature with WiseStamp-http://www.wisestamp.com
    ✔ and beautify my twits with TwitterKeys- http://thenextweb.org/2008/09/16/twitterkeys-enhance-your-twitter-conversations/
    Both are ✩✩✩✩✩

  • November 5, 2008

    Hey this is really nice compilation of list. I have used the desktop clients, Twubble, Tracking tools. Never know about the other services. This list certainly helps me to know Twitter better

    Many Thanks,

  • November 5, 2008


    It’s based on AIR so it’s cross platform and it can cope with multiple accounts which I need as I have a couple of twitter accounts.

  • November 5, 2008

    TweetDeck is my client of choice. Works great. I am also like EasyTweets. It pretty much replaces TweetLater and TwitterFeed. My application of choice on my iPhone is Twittelator pro.I also use a lot of the others mentioned here by Darren. Tweetscan is also important to see what is being said about you and/or your company.

  • November 5, 2008

    A recent twitter convert, it was great to see this list of twitter resources, about half of which I hadn’t heard of. I don’t think I’d use twitter nearly as much if not for twhirl, though I can think of plenty of improvements I’d like to make. Another twitter tool I use when I’m feeling lazy is TwitterFox (since I use Firefox)–it’s all right there in my browser chrome.

  • November 5, 2008

    I have TwitterFox plugin installed on Firefox… But, nowadays i rarely use Firefox as Chrome is becoming my primary browser…
    Other than that i use TwitterForiPhone as a desktop app as i do with other Web Apps

  • November 5, 2008

    TweetDeck and Twitteriffic sometimes.

  • November 5, 2008

    I am using twhirl as a desktop client. To find people to follow I am using Twubble and/or Twitter Karma.

  • November 5, 2008

    Twhirl: is the one that I use the most. I’ve tried tweetdeck, it just doesn’t seem to fit me as well. It is a really good program, too.

    Twitter Grader: http://twitter.grader.com/ Is my 2nd most used used twitter tool. It’s fun to see how you ‘rank’. It’s amazing how much your rank can vary just by who’s watching you at the moment.

    TwitPic: I’ve seen it used, I haven’t checked out the terms of service yet on it though. ^-^;

    Tweet Wheel: I didn’t know about until you posted it here. It’s fun to play with, the only downside is that I feel a bit like it’s spying on other people.

    Thanks for the information, I didn’t know that most of these existed!

  • November 5, 2008

    Twitterfeed to tweet my blog posts
    Twhirl to manage tweets

    I live in Argentina so can’t update Twitter or Facebook from my phone so I use

    Messagedance to send tweets from my phone
    Twitter to update my Facebook status so I don’t have to log into that memory hog!

  • November 5, 2008

    twitters anonymous — in-Ur-face reminder!
    twittergrader — comes with a badge
    have’t caught the hang of tweetwheel yet
    a fb app 4 connecting w/ other twitter users caled ?

  • November 5, 2008

    I use TweetDeck for my desktop client and Twitter Tools to automatically post my blog posts to twitter. I don’t really pay much attention to stats, but I check out Twitter Grader from time to time. I really like Ping.fm for posting to multiple social networks from one central location.


  • November 5, 2008

    I use TweetDeck and for uploading photos TwitPic

  • November 5, 2008

    I’ve used Twellow a couple of times, but the results are so overwhelming! I keep wishing that there was a better way to narrow searches. If so, this could end up being a great tool journalistically. I’ve already tried using it to find sources for stories I’m working on.

    I also recently signed up for Qwitter, because I’m a glutton for punishment, and curious about how my tweets may be driving readers away.

    I used to use Ping.fm, back when I was also on Plurk, but I was getting overwhelmed keeping up with multiple microblogging sites (hm…I’m easily overwhelmed, aren’t I?).

    Just signed up for Twitpic!

  • November 5, 2008

    Inmy cas ei use tritterfox. Whit firefox.

  • November 5, 2008

    We use:
    ✔ WiseStamp-to promote our twitter profile in email signatures
    ✔ TwitterKeys- to enhance our Twitter conversations.
    ✔Free Twitter Graphics- For twitter follow me buttons.
    check it out…

  • November 5, 2008

    tweetdeck is epic. makes it manageable.

  • November 5, 2008

    Hi Darren!

    I use a combination of services depending of the day Twhirl, TwitterFox, TweetDeck but I want to add to the list, a very useful Twitter service when you lost some tweet or there are delays in the desktop applications http://search.twitter.com/

    Good luck Darren with this new blog and keep up your very good work at ProBlogger!

  • November 5, 2008

    I use Twitterfox and I also use a google gadget called Be Twittered. On my iPhone I use the free version of Twitterlator

  • November 5, 2008

    I use the web version on my iPod touch, and I alternate between using the web version and Twitterfox on my laptop. I also use TwitPic for images, and TwitterFeed for posting my personal blog posts to Twitter (I don’t use it for my pro blogs because it would be too many – instead I link to them manually if I think there will be an interest, picking one or two per day.

    I didn’t know about TweetBurner and will check that out right now – thanks Darren!

  • November 5, 2008

    I live with TweetDeck open, organising all my tweets from my disparate sources. It really has to be the *best* client out there.
    On the move I love http://www.dabr.co.uk as a fab replacement for m.twitter.com
    On the old Blackberry I use TwitterBerry for firing off a quick update and dabr for viewing.

  • November 5, 2008

    I just downloaded TweetDeck a few hours ago. I am still playing around with it but, so far I am loving it. I also have the Twitter Tools plugin on a couple of blogs.

  • November 5, 2008

    Twitterfeed online and twibble on my n95

  • November 5, 2008

    I wouldn’t be using Twitter if not for Twhirl. I’ve tried several twitter apps, and Twhirl is far and away the best in my opinion.

    I also use tweetlater.com to promote my photography blog posts from the feed.

    Aside from those two main ones, I occasionally use a couple of stats sites.

  • November 5, 2008

    I also like TwitterVision. It is Twitter meets Google Maps. I could watch it for days.


  • November 5, 2008

    I use tweetdeck as a way of making twitter less distracting. I have certain people I follow for fun or social reasons and others that are useful to my job and industry.

    Tweetdeck allows me to split up my follows into streams so that I am not distracted by Santa and his elves while at work but can catch up when I get home.

    Tweetlater is great if I know I will want to say something but will probably forget if I am away from my comuter.

  • November 5, 2008

    I rely on Ping.fm for my updates because it lets me update status everywhere with one click of a button. I have the PingFire addon for Firefox on both computers so that I just have to click the button to update, and I have the PingPress plugin installed on my blog so that when I make a new blog post it’s passed on to everywhere. I don’t access the Internet via phone, so that’s not an issue.

    I did not know about some of the tools you listed — I’ll have to check them out in a bit.

  • November 5, 2008

    I like FriendorFollow.com, which tells you which people are following you that you don’t follow, and which people you follow that aren’t following you. I don’t think it’s imperative to follow everyone who is following me or vice versa but a) I’m curious and b) I think mutual follows can often make it easier to follow conversations so I check it periodically.

  • November 5, 2008

    I use tweetdeck running off adobe Air. I’ve yet to figure out how to direct message people, but it’s really useful for organizing replies, direct messages, and searches right from your desktop. You can also group users into categories and you can shorten urls and twitpic from it. It looks pretty nice as well. I have a macbook, by the way.

  • November 5, 2008

    I use twitterfox for my web browser, HelloTXT to update several social networks at one time, twitter feed for my blog feeds and twitty tunes in order to twit what I am listening to/browsing/reading/watching.

    I am going to check out twitter later since it’s something I’ve been looking for! Thanks for all the suggestions!

  • November 5, 2008

    I use tweetburner for publishing my RSS feed (via Feedburner) to Twitter.
    I’ve stopped using thwirl since twitter allowed you to view @replies directly.
    I also have TwurlThis! and TwitThis in my bookmarks bar for quick tracking and twitting on the fly.
    I also just started using tweetlater to send automated replies to new followers.
    I’d really welcome some kind of way to tag or categorise the people I follow so that I can focus on one part of my twittersphere at a time, instead of flipping through the stromash ( great Scottish word, probably spell wrong). For example, if I want to connect with my SEO friends, I don’t want to have to look through all my tech tweets etc.
    If anyone has a tool that can do this or a nice system, I’d love to hear it.

  • November 5, 2008

    I didn’t use anything until yesterday, I finally installed Adobe Air for Ubuntu and Twhirl, and I love it! Having everything on your desktop, instant notifications of new tweets and replies makes for better (and easier) conversation. Plus I heard people say once the started using Twhirl, they saw @replies they never saw before on twitter.com so I think I’m going to stick with Twhirl for my desktop client, but I’m going to check out all the links you posted too.

  • November 5, 2008

    I have been keeping track of Twitter (and some other apps) on my Mac using Flock’s browser, mainly because it does let me see friends’ updates from assorted SM sites all at once.

    I prefer to be unplugged from all social media and tweets when I am away from the office, so haven’t reviewed or experimented with phone apps, except for Brightkite. This location based social media does integrate with Twitter, but doesn’t seem to have caught on. (Only one other person I know uses it, so where’s the fun in that!?)

  • November 5, 2008

    Nice new weblog, i love the explaination about hou wyou set it all up.
    And yet anothe rss feed in de reader =]

  • November 5, 2008

    I also like TwitterVision. It is where Twitter meets Google maps.


  • November 5, 2008

    Twittermail offers several services, but the one I love is the e-mail digest of all tweets containing my @username (anywhere in the tweet, not just at the beginning).

  • November 5, 2008

    I just joined Twitter a few days ago. The only tool I use is Twitterfeed at the moment. Maybe in time as I follow more people or get more followers I will expand to more tools. I would not have a use for most of those tools at this point though. Thanks for the list anyway, I had no idea there were so many Twitter programs.

  • November 5, 2008

    I use Twitteriffic for Mac. Tried out other tools but keep coming back. Use TwitPic for images and TinyURL for shrinking URL’s.

  • November 5, 2008

    Recently, Magpie (or Be-A-Magpie) launched and you can get ads delivered through your stream. I imagine it is an annoyance to keep receiving and will likely lose followers, but I think there are circumstances where it’s okay. For example, I have created a comedy feed (which I choose to keep anonymous here) which has an ad every 3 tweets. I lose between 1-4 followers a day, but don’t mind because I gain about 10-15+ a day.

    I figured out, this is how royalties are worked out with magpie.

    Your followers / 500 = Euros

    So for example:

    100 followers / 500 = €0.20 = £0.16 = $0.25. Not very worth bothering followers for that.

    But if you have 500 followers, you get €1 every ad. If you’re popular, and have, say, 2000 followers, €4 per ad is alright, and you can set how often the ad tweets happen, and they are tagged with #magpie so people know it is an ad (could be a good and bad thing).

    I think it has an interesting potential. Bad because some people are posting worthless tweets like mad to get more ads, but if you have a lot of followers and set only occasional ads (one every 10 tweets perhaps) then it’s a nice small earner without much effort. Interesting to see how it pans out, or how other companies have a go with a similar model.

    Note: they don’t seem to always post their ad tweets, as if they go ‘down’ frequently, and you have to earn €50 before you can cash out, though their terms and conditions actually state every €10.

  • November 5, 2008

    Hi Splendid list, I am quite new to twitter and wasnt knwoing any of this. But will give a try to everyone of this. Thanks for sharing such a great information

  • November 5, 2008

    First, note that the #hashtags.org service appears to be down since July 10, though it is a great idea. I love to use Twitter for crowd-sourcing of trends, etc.

    I have been working on using hashtags to allow creating a “real” blog post from multiple tweets, that can then be read and assembled as a post by the TwitterTools Wordpress plugin (which I highly recommend BTW for having Twitter be notified of your blog posts, and embedding your updates on your blog index page).

    Currently TwitterTools allows for the auto-assembling of a daily or weekly “Twitter Digest” post, but I have found those to be too disjointed for the most part. However, identifying a true blog post by using start and end hashtags, as well as a tag to identify the desired title in a tweet, and using e.g. “..” to allow for paragraph/sentence continuation should do the trick.

    All that I am missing right now is the logic to check for when the last such “smart post” was assembled, so that multiple posts can be written per day without duplicating earlier posts.

  • November 5, 2008

    I use TwitterFox on my laptop. I was using Twitteriffic, but I didn’t like it nearly as much as TwitterFox. I use TwitterBerry on my Blackberry to stay connected when I’m out.

  • November 5, 2008

    I use TweetDeck for tweeting, TwitterFeed for twittering my feeds, BudUrl.com for shortening URL’s, HelloTXT for sending updates to multiple SM networks, Twitter.Grader.com for ranking, and JustTweetIt.com for everything else Twitter related. It’s an all-in-one directory of all things Twitter!

  • November 5, 2008

    I use Twitterific on my MacBook Pro, after using HelloText, which was nice, but a bit less stable at the time.

    thanks for doing all this great info!

  • November 5, 2008

    Twitteriffic on Mac and iPhone. TweetBurner, which is very useful. I like the screen organization of TweetDeck, but having to use mouse to use it makes it a miserable experience for me. (That and having to click the little dot to mark tweets as read.) Also have used Hahlo on iPhone and in the new Cruz browser, which shows some promise for Mac users.

  • November 5, 2008

    I use Tweetdeck and have had good success with it, especially since they fixed the “group” feature. It remembers your settings and lets you edit them, so it’s pretty easy to set up a group of the people you most want to keep up with at any given time.

    It’s also easy to see your replies and direct messages quickly w/o having to be logged in to Twitter.

    Now, if only there were a way to mark Tweets as favorites from the desktop…

  • November 5, 2008

    I’m using :

    1. Twitterfox
    2. Twitterbar
    3. Twitterfeed
    4. BLIP (Twitter for music)
    5. Twitterburner
    6. Twittercounter
    7. Twitter Facebook App


  • November 5, 2008

    I use Twhirl on my mac and I had no idea there were so many various Twitter tools. I’ll have to check out tweetburner – thanks!

  • November 5, 2008

    Oh that’s great timing !
    I was looking to get more out of twitter and use it better.
    Thanks !!!

  • November 5, 2008

    Qwitter: http://useqwitter.com/
    Qwitter e-mails you when someone stops following you on Twitter.

    TwitBeep: http://tweetbeep.com/login.html?msg=please-login
    TweetBeep is like Google Alerts for Twitter! Put in a keyword or website, and get emails when others tweet it!

    I am using these and like them pretty well!


  • November 5, 2008

    During the day I am a die hard Twhirl fan while working. It sits silently in the sys tray until I am DM’d. On the weekends and at night – I love TweetDeck.

  • November 5, 2008

    I originally used Twhirl for my desktop client, but now switching to Tweetdeck. The grouping feature is interesting, though I wish I could do it based on topic rather than follower. On my blackberry I use TwitterBerry.

    A new tool that I love is Tweet Beep, which is like Google Alerts for specific terms. I use it to see what conversations and comments are occurring about the SSL products I am responsible for.

  • November 5, 2008

    I’m somewhat new to twitter, and I’ve been using twitterific…

    Doesn’t twitter automatically shrink URLs using TinyURL for you? Or is it twitterific that does that?

  • November 5, 2008

    I’ve started using Qwitter to catch those that follow me to get me to follow them and then unfollow me. I also like FriendOrFollow to manage who I follow. I also like Twhirl and TwitPic. Another tool to see how you stack up is Grader.

  • November 5, 2008

    Hey there… friend just sent me a link to this place since I’m all new with the twittering and your list has been pretty fun to click through so thanks for sharin’ =)

  • November 5, 2008

    I use Twhirl. Love it. It’s nice not having to go to the Twitter website to get updates all the time.

  • November 5, 2008

    I use the Firefox extension Foxytunes with TwittyTunes to tweet my current listening selection. Twitkit and Twitterfeed are also awesome tools.

  • November 5, 2008

    One of my favs was Twhirl, but I just got a new HD and haven’t redownloaded it yet.

  • November 5, 2008

    http://www.friendorfollow.com not sure if anyone has mentioned this one yet. It’s very visual and handy.

  • November 5, 2008

    Thanks, Darren! I was looking forward to a list like this. I am somehow new in the twitter culture, so this helps. I use twitterlator and twitterific on my iPod.

  • November 5, 2008

    I only use TweetDeck or Twhirl and Twitterfeed.

  • November 5, 2008

    i use Twhirl and the twitter app for Google Dextop.

    Their are some nice looking tools on your list that i hadnt heard of.
    ill try them out and let you know my thoughts =]

  • November 5, 2008

    I use Twhirl on my desktops, Twitteriffic on my iPhone, Ping.fm, and Twitterlocal to find fellow Twitter users near me.

  • November 5, 2008

    CityTweets.net shows real-time twitter activity ‘from’ and ‘about’ different cities: http://citytweets.net

    It’s a good way to see other people in your area who use Twitter or to track local topics.

  • November 5, 2008

    I use TweetStats.

  • November 5, 2008

    Tweetdeck – check
    Twhirl – check (no long use it though)
    Twshot – check

    Have you checked out the new feature with FriendFeed, being able to tweet your FriendFeed updates. (It’s a really cool way of tweeting your latest blog entries as well)
    Oh yeah.. also found a new cool combination of Twitter with Yedda.com.


  • November 5, 2008

    Brand new to Twitter so I’m thrilled this new blog is available. I’m only using a Word Press plugin to post my Twitter Tweats. Looking forward to understanding how Twitter will increase my traffic.

  • November 5, 2008

    wow there are some great twitter tools being suggested here – thanks everyone for your great feedback!!

  • November 5, 2008

    I use:
    BeTwittered app for iGoogle
    BudURL (awesome for click stats, and easy to use with the bookmark)
    Twitter Grader (can’t help checking my grade every now and then)
    Gridjit (http://www.gridjit.com) – social portal for Twitter and Friendfeed.

    @jonathan thanks for mentioning CityTweets…really cool!

  • November 5, 2008

    I :
    a. use iTweet in a separate tab in FireFox
    b. beautify my twits with TwitterKeys

  • November 5, 2008

    FoxyTunes is indispensable to me for tweeting web page URLs (I don’t even use it to tweet what music I’m listening to, which is its original purpose. I use TweetDeck for an app, TwitterFeed, and Qwitter. I run TweetDeck full screen in a 2nd monitor.

  • November 5, 2008


    I have saved searches that I pull into Google reader RSS – sweet combo

    Would love to connect with some of ya’ll here


  • November 5, 2008

    I use twitbin fire fox extension to see at a glance what is coming in while I am doing my “normal” surfing.

  • November 5, 2008

    I use Socialthing! in a site specific browser called fluid. it allows me to track twitter, plurk, pownce and facebook (although facebook sometimes doesn’t track) as well as flickr photos and more. I can post via ping.fm direct from it so it all works well! great list of services Darren, including a couple I haven’t heard of yet

  • November 5, 2008

    Thanks very much for all the info and resources you provide here – I knew I was underutilizing Twitter, and had not found the time to delve into all its facets on my own. The tool and service list you provided is going to be a great starting point – appreciate the effort you put into it!

    Kim Washetas

  • November 5, 2008

    I’ve used Ping.fm, friendfeed, twitterholic, Twellow

  • November 5, 2008

    Use quite a few. Twicpic is a news to me.. Many thanks for umbrella pot mentioning all tools. Do the same for other social networking sites if not here then on problogger

  • November 6, 2008

    Desktop: Tweetdeck
    iPhone: Twitteriffic with Gyzackr for Picture upload, and Twinkle to locate locals on the go.

  • November 7, 2008

    Recently have started using monitter http://monitter.com/ – search on 3 keywords simultaneously.

  • November 7, 2008

    I really dig TwitterFox, but don’t hear much from others about it.

  • November 7, 2008

    Trying out Witty — native .net for windows machines. Looks good, so far. http://code.google.com/p/wittytwitter/

    Is there any good tool for crossreferencing friends and followers. I know that when you check your followers you can tell which ones you are already following. For some reason, when you check people you are following there isn’t a readily apparent way to tell which of them are also following you. Unless I’m missing something…

    I’m using web services from identi.ca and unltdworld, as well as the soon-to-appear BuzzinStatus Wordpress plugin.

    I use Twhirl for my computer and recently signed up for TwitPic. I have played with a few other apps for the computer but keep coming back to Twhirl.

    @Tom Hanna: you might want to look at Twitter Karma (http://dossy.org/twitter/karma/) or Tweeple Twak (http://www.tweepletwak.com) which is in private beta.

    I’m using the Twitter Tools WordPress plugin and TweetDeck. TweetDeck is an amazing application. Thanks to all for the list of other twitter tools.

    I use twitter tools but I’m not impressed with it. It doesn’t seem to be consistent with it’s dependability. I was using twitterfeed prior to twitter tools and I think I’m going to go back to it. Though I would like to find a program that would post my “selected” tweets for the week as a separate post on my blog.

    I use TweetDeck mostly….started on Twhirl, but I like TweetDeck better.

    Awesome site Darren!

    I LOVE Twhirl! I only wish that there were an app that had the same features to be used thru FF. I especially like that I can read a grouping and delete the tweets and start fresh. I like that I don’t have to use tinyurl – Twhirl shortens links for you! I really like that I can choose to DM or @ or RT for each tweet I recieve!

    ….and what’s up with Chrome? there’s no Twitter app so I can’t use it????

    I use the web interface, primarily because i always hav a browser running. I use auxillary tools from here to make my follow management better.

    One of my Favorite tools is http://FriendOrFollow.com

    I’m relatively new to Twitter and so far I’ve used Tweetdeck, although all these other tools sound really cool! I’m fascinated with Twitter; it’s fast becoming my favorite social networking site.

  • December 7, 2008

    I keep it simple. I use very little tools. However I use http://www.twitip.com as a tool. Its a valuable tool created to avoid all the other pitfalls and other tools out there. Hats off to you Darren.

    Hey folks

    Does anyone know of a smart phone twitter service worth trying? Thanks! :)

  • December 30, 2008

    I’m using twitterfon on my iphone. It’s handy for when I’m on the go, or when my hubby is at the computer… I can still keep in touch with my tweetpals. :)

  • February 1, 2009

    I usually use Twhirl, sometimes via Web, I want to use Tweetdeck if it can support Chinese characters.

    I just completed a Twitter client for Microsoft Excel. It is coded in Excel VBA as an add-in; you use it to post tweets to your account from Excel. Available for Excel 2000-2007. Read the description and download it here:

    Very nice post

    I dont like twitter at all, it uses nofollow tag…

  • March 9, 2009

    If you’re basing your preference on nofollow tag usage then you’re missing the big picture of the utility of a social site…

    Hi, I like what I see on your blog. Good work my friend.

    Its always the case that there is never one platform to cover all angles. Its fun trying to find them though.

    I love Twitterific for the iPhone

    Tweetspinner and also TweetLater. Fantastic tools for the business orientated.

    Cheers now.
