Twitter isn’t always easy to handle. From managing lists to finding new and interesting people and alerts to tweet scheduling, there is plenty of tools to help out when Twitter.com just can’t do the job.
But how in the heck does anyone find this stuff? Some programs are built for massive corporate accounts and cost hundreds to thousands of dollars a month; others cost nothing, but how much trust should you place in a web service that may very well be a scam?
Knowing this, the best way to find the best Twitter tools is to
ask your friends, get to know the founders/developers and experiment away. Tweetfind is days away from launching their own set of tools, and you’re lucky enough to receive part one of a two-part preview.
This Tweetfind tool lets users view people that they follow but aren’t following back, Klout scores, top Twitterers as determined by follower count and engagement, active users and a batch mode that allows accounts to follow up to 100 people at the same time.
Businesses, or anyone looking to gain from knowing the right people, should find this feature invaluable. Less random following and more targeted campaigns to keep Twitter streams full of interesting people with great things to say.
TweetFind Discovery Tool
This Tweetfind Tool allows you to Search for Twitter Acconts with certain Keywords & Topics. You could also create Twitter lists, add to those lists, follow top users, filter through top users and view the aggregate Klout scores of your keyword search.
This tool allows prospecting types to know more about and interact better with anyone they’re looking to learn more about. For those who follow a few hundred to a few thousand people, it will certainly cut down on the noise.
Twitter List Tool
This tool allows users to add people to current or new lists, works with the TweetFind Tools Address Book, is Klout enabled, follow and unfollow and allows for Twitter lists batch mode to easily assign multiple users to new lists.
Lists are the absolute best way to manage many followers, and this tool gives users finite control of such. Saves a ton of time, too.
The Ultimate Twitter Dashboard. View your Tweets, your sent Tweets, friends Tweets with Klout scores and view the profile pictures of those mentioned in the Tweets. View your Direct Messages and Mentions right on the same screen. You could also add to your TweetFindTool address books and view most recent followers from ONE SCREEN!
Pretty awesome, yeah? Not only can users manage their entire Twitter presence from TweetFind Tools, they can tweet, too. Great time saver.
Sort followers into different address books like personal, business or family, send direct messages, keep notes for each contact and use it as a virtual Twitter Rolodex.
Seeing as how neither Windows nor Mac OS X has integrated Twitter handles into the address applications, this feature is a welcome addition for those who use Twitter to communicate daily.
