Who needs Twitter tools? The answer may surprise you: virtually anyone who makes use of the social networking site. Micro-blogging sounds like a deceptively simple proposition; after all, how complicated can 140 characters get? That said, the entrepreneur and also the recreational social networker alike rely on numerous Twitter tools to organize and find followers, branch out to new communities and also take advantage of deals and steals.
Qwitter. You went to bed with 700 followers. In the morning, you log back on and see that you are down to 689; who jumped ship? While the occasional micro-blogger may not really care, the entrepreneur who relies heavily on this site for marketing purposes needs to know. One of the simplest Twitter tools is Qwitter, which is a free application that sends out a daily email with the profiles of followers who left.
Monitter. Social media marketers in particular appreciate the capability of tracking trending topics and keywords. Track campaign keywords, find new keywords and also see trends separated by geographic locales. This is also one of the Twitter tools that a traveler might enjoy when trying to figure out what’s hot (and what’s not) locally--wherever that might be.
Twitter Grader. Are there problems with your Twitter profile? Among the million of users, how do you rank? An entrepreneur would want to know if there is trouble; a person concerned with having a profile tied to less than profitable connections can also use the sister service: Alerts Grader. Sign up for it and get alerts when a highly ranking tweeter follows the account.
Use Twitter tools to your personal and professional advantage. Although it takes a bit of time at the onset to get everything configured, once the services are connecting and sending evaluations, this data is well worth the bit of time spent.
