Just a quick short list of a couple useful twitter applications to share; some of these are already commonly known but I wanted a complete list of those I’m using / exploring.
I’ve capped it at 10 simply due to the fact if you are using more than 10 twitter tools…you might need to get out more… J
- Tweet A File: http://tweetafile.com/ – free app that lets you send file attachments via twitter…something you couldn’t do “easily” before.
- TweetDeck: http://tweetdeck.com/beta/ – Probably the most popular twitter app out there; allow users to send and receive tweets and view profiles, organize threads etc.
- Tweet Later: http://www.tweetlater.com/ – this is a great idea for folks responsible for corporate twitter accounts – it lets you enter a bunch of updates in advance and schedule their release in the future; enabling you to appear as if you are twittering real time when you might just simply be tied up elsewhere.
- Twitterfeed: http://twitterfeed.com/ – helps you send blog rss feed to twitter and gives you some analysis / tracking of feeds; just starting to toy around with this myself.
- Twonvert: http://www.twonvert.com/ – free app that helps you convert “plain English” updates into shorthand language to reduce character usage. Doesn’t handle industry specific or “b2b” words well or typos – but handy overall.
- Twittonary: http://www.twittonary.com/ – yup; that’s it – a dictionary for twitter lingo.
- Monitter: http://monitter.com/ – real time, live twitter monitor that lets you monitor a set of keywords and what people are saying; a little tricky to figure out at first.
- Twittercal: http://twittercal.com/ – if you use Google’s calendar app; this is a handy little tool that allows you to add events to your calendar right from twitter; simple little handy tool.
- Mr. Tweet: http://mrtweet.com/ – it was described to me as similar to iTunes genius program; basically scans twitterdom for folks you might want to follow with similar interests. (bonus: http://twitter-friends.com/ looks to be similar)
- ootweet: http://ootweet.com/ – lets you “archive” your favorite tweets or discussions; admittedly haven’t played around with much – but could be useful
