Below is a list of my preferred twitter apps. It is not a complete and exhaustive list, but these are the twitter apps I have found most useful in my business. If you know of any better let me know and I will add them to my list.
Tweetdeck is the ‘Daddy’ and makes it super easy to schedule and share your tweets. Keep your Tweetdeck topped up and they will auto-magically share your tweets for you through the day, whenever you want them to be scheduled. You can schedule up to a year in advance meaning you can set it going and forget about it! This is by far the best app for Twitter in the market at present. You can sign up and use for free.
Never miss a profile update or picture change with this app. BioisChanged searches for changes in the profiles or photos of your Twitter friends and updates you instantly, daily or weekly. This is perfect for following your favorite band and getting info on concert or album release dates straight from the source.
3. Destroy Twitter
Destroy Twitter was designed to run in the background, allowing you to tweet and get back to work quickly. This Adobe AIR app offers a range of customisation and filters, as well as nice notifications and a beautiful interface.
Hootsuite is a browser based social media dashboard designed for businesses who want to control multiple social media networks at once. Try the freebie version or get a pro account for c.£9/month.
InTweets makes it easy for you to create and follow channels of tweets based on your interests.
MyFirstTweet has created a giant database of Twitter users’s very first tweets. Scroll through for what the website calls “an anthropological dig through Twitter” or search your own username for your first 140 character message to Twitterdom.
SnapBird is essentially Google for your tweets. It combs through your tweets (or someone else’s) for search words, so you’ll be able to find EXACTLY what Lady Gaga said when she replied to your tweet 8 months ago.
Buffer makes it super easy to schedule and share any page you’re reading. Keep your Buffer topped up and they will auto-magically share them for you through the day. You can schedule up to 10 tweets for free or purchase the pro version for c.£8/month. This is by far the best app for Twitter in the market at present. You can sign up for free using the link below
For Mac users who don’t forgive easily, ByeByeBirdie alerts you whenever you lose a follower, so you can be sure to return the favor.
