So you think your "Using" Twitter? Not yet you're not...

And while we're all hopped up on the topic of Twitter, I wanted to give a shout out to a fellow blogger who I THINK (personally, me...) has probably put together the best list of Twitter Applications around. Twitter apps are all over the place. Whether hooking it up to FriendFeed so that your updates feed to your Facebook status, or a simple widget that resides on your blog to keep your readers up to date (see right sidebar!) these applications allow you to utilize Twitter more effectively and really harness the power of the site. In his post, "47 Awesome Twitter Tools You Should Be Using", social media guru Deontee Gordon (@deontee) outlines the many Twitter applications available and how you could utilize them (a great job in doing so I might add - since many tell you WHAT they are but not HOW to use them). In the true spirit of collaboration, and as Deontee so sweetly puts it:

So, to help make things easier, I’ve searched the Web, combed through the blogosphere, and rummaged through my del.icio.us bookmarks to sort and list some of the best Twitter sites and services the Net has to offer. This is by no means a definitive list, but I think it’ll serve us bloggers, Internet marketers, entrepreneurs, and social media junkies well.
As for me... I've boiled my applications down to TwitPic for pictures, Twitterberry for my blackberry, Twubble for finding who to follow, and Tweetdeck for my desktop Twittering. He also has a great list of blogs that he's reading as well at the lower right hand side of his site, so take a minute and check them out as well. Thanks again to Deontee for his great work and find me on Twitter @mattdollinger

Thanks for the links.  Everyone seems to love tweetdeck but I haven't tried it out yet.

Thank you Matthew. I have just recently started using twitter and I guess I should use it more, but just haven't gotten in the swing of it yet, but with these tools, well, things might change fast.

Seems like you have really keyed into the tools for twitter that real estate professionals would get the most milage out of.

Thanks Again Matthew,

Justin - totally dig TweetDeck. Allows you to seperate the NOISE from the good stuff

Ed/Robert- If you're looking to figure out social media, and Twitter in general, I would take a look the last post I did over at my blog www.TheYouFactor.com  It shows the entire presentation that I did for the Chicago WCR on social media.  Let me know if I can help.

Hi Mathew, I had seen one of his posts once before but did not subscribe as I could not see myself on other social networks besides AR. Now I'm on Twitter and I loved Deontee's list that you provided. I am sort of new on Twitter and find the list sort of fun to pick through and decide my interests. Thanks for sharing.

Matthew, I left you a note earlier but I just wanted to come here to say thanks again for taking the time to spotlight my Twitter tools list.

And a warm thanks to everyone who took the time to stop by and check out the site. I appreciate the kind words William. I'm glad you enjoyed browsing the list.

Take care. I wish you all the best,


Deon

Tech Crunch posted a story ranking Twitter apps by how popular they are in traffic. Its a good read for sure.

Matthew:  All I can tell you is that I hit the jackpot this morning when I stumbled upon your blog.  I'm re-blogging this too and sending it to all some of my friends (I don't have THAT much time!!!)

Matt, have you checked out tweetgadget? It's a new app that works with gmail. One less step.
