Great post, worth reading and following.

Navigating your way through Twitter and all the Tools and Applications out there can be overwhelming.

Here are three Tools worth checking out that will help you better utilize and manage your Twitter experience.

TweetDeck - My favorite tool that I've found so far is Tweetdeck.  It's like having my own Twitter control pad.  It puts everything on one page for me, even my Facebook status updates.  Here are some of the things that you can do with TweetDeck:

  • Check your Twitter messages
  • Send out Tweets and Retweets
  • Create Twitter Groups
  • Email Tweets to Friends
  • Organize and Manage All of Your Tweets
  • Follow People or Trending Topics or Locations, etc. by creating a Search Column
  • Creates easy to read columns about the tweets you want to hear about
  • Adds a Profile Column of people so you can preview them without leaving TweetDeck
  • Reply or Direct Message users from TweetDeck
  • Add a Facebook column and receive status updates from your Friends

 Hootsuite - Hootsuite uses a deck format that is similar to Tweetdeck.  It is a professional toolbox for Twitter and provides a few tools that TweetDeck doesn't, like pre-scheduled tweets    and tracking multiple Twitter profiles. I really like that fact that you can schedule status updates from other sites like Facebook.  With Hootsuite you can:

  • Manage multiple Twitter accounts
  • Pre-schedule tweets
  • Update Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn all at one time using one interface
  • Schedule status updates on Facebook, LinkedIn and as well.
  • Manage multiple Twitter accounts
  • Multi-editor support
  • Send automated Tweets when your RSS feed is updated (great way to get that new blog post seen)

Tweetlister - I haven't tried tweetlister yet, but it is definitely something I plan on utilizing in my marketing plan in the near future.  Tweetlister allows real estate professionals and even For Sale by Owners to promote property listings on Twitter.  Tired of trying to promote your listing in 140 characters or less?  Tweetlister will adapt your listing into a tweet for you! Some additional features of TweetLister:

  • Creating and managing property listings
  • Your current MLS listings will automatically show in your TweetLister account after you provide your Agent ID
  • Each listing is automatically changed into a 140-character "tweet"
  • Scheduling when each listing will post on Twitter
  • Posting to multiple Twitter accounts
  • A detail page for each listing
  • Tracking Clicks on your listings

What's your favorite Twitter Tool?

Hi Cinda, Enjoyed your post as I've have a Twitter account at MarkLomas (my username) that I'm just beginning to use. I joined over a year ago but have not played around there too much, but any help trying to figure out this site is helpful. There's an ad at the bottom of your post for MacWin Consulting. Are you part of this as it appears your post is from a Todd Bogert....confused? Is your post a bait for this company?
