Twitter mania continues to rise in popularity. Millions are now hooked up with it. Some are using it just for fun but some are using it to make some serious money.
If you are on Twitter, here are some Twitter tools that will help you manage your tweets and bring more traffic to your site. Enjoy!
1. TweetMeme Retweet Button
This has got to be one of the best tools around for encouraging visitors to tweet your posts. See the green button at the top of this post. This TweetMeme Retweet Button plugin simply and easily adds that button and visitors can easily retweet your blog post.
With SocialOomph you can:
Schedule tweets: You can spend as long as you want creating Tweets and schedule when you want to tweet your tweets!
Auto Follows: This will auto follow anyone that follows you
Auto Un-follow: Simply un-follow those who un-follow you
Takes all the information from twitter (tweets, mentions, direct messages…) and shows it to you in one organized screen. Saves hours especially if you have more than one Twitter account.
This application fetches all your friends and followers from Twitter when you click the “Whack!” button. You can bulk ‘un-follow’ those who are not following you and you can bulk ‘follow’ those who are following you. It helps you get through the 2000 Twitter followers bottleneck.
Twitter Tools is a plugin that creates a complete integration between your WordPress blog and your Twitter account. You can actually:
Create a tweet on Twitter whenever you post in your blog, with a link to the blog post
Create a blog post from each of your tweets
How many friends are you really following? Twitoria finds your friends that haven’t tweeted in a long time so you can give them the boot!
7. Twitter Keys
Enhances your Twitter conversation by enabling UTF8 symbols.
This plugin will add an extra field to your comment form so a user can add their Twitter username. A user configured ‘follow me’ link is then displayed along with their details on all their comments.
Translates your Tweets into different languages.
Helps you find fellow Tweeters in the same niche as you.
So which ones do you use to gain more followers?
I love your list and use most of them. I like http://www.huitter.com/mutuality. It is a lot faster than twitter karma. Ooo Twitoria sounds neat. I’m going to have to check that one out. 🙂 Thanks for sharing.
Twitter karma can take a time to load (especially when you have 15,000 followers!).
I shall try http://www.huitter.com/mutuality
Andrew, would you say that Social Oomph is better than TweetLater? I’ve heard of the latter but not the former. I need to organize my tweet strategy and am not sure which tool is better.

OH! Hahaha,just went to look at Social Oomph and discovered my error. It used to be TweetLater. Going to sign up then….thanks for the post!
I have been using some of these twitter tool, but till now my twitter follower not increasing so high, just expecting for increase my twitter follower.
I like the Auto Un follow tool. Why should you follow those who dump you? – Cheers – Ray J.:Mobiltelefon uten abonnement
Exactly and you need to un-follow to get past the 2000 followers hurdle.
I’ve never heard of Social Oomph before, I’ll be sure to give it a try! Sounds very handy.
So what’s your opinion of Echofon? I know it’s not exactly a Twitter Tool, but it’s so perfectly integrated within Firefox: it deservers a mention in a comment, to be honest! The Echofon popups are small and don’t stand in the way of your work. It’s nice.

I’ve never used Echofon – what does it do?

Check out http://echofon.com/twitter/firefox/. It’s a FireFox extension with which you can easily check if you got new public messages or direct messages. I like my tweets unobtrusive while I’m working ;).

Tweetdeck is a great application to use if you get and manage a ton of tweets and want to organize them so you can view the most important first.
Also very good if you have several Twitter accounts.

I like the Twitter Tools and the Tweetmeme button the best. The growth of people using Twitter is nothing short of amazing. I wish I had thought of it.
…and so do I?
But to be honest I am surprized it has caught on so much!

I’ve been using TweetMeme so far, as that seems to be a popular plugin.
But I see so many Twitter plugings that I don’t know which ones are best or the differences between them.
This list definitely helps.

I;ve had not probs with the TweetMeme plugin – makes it easy for the visitor to tweet the post.

Excellent tips Andrew, thanks a lot! I was wondering: have you ever used Tweetdeck as a Twitter client? I’ve recently discovered it and it’s my favorite: multiple accounts support and great usability. You should check it out if you have the time.
I do use TweetDeck – excellent tool.
Thanks Andrew! What do you say about Tweet Adder software to increase followers ?
I’ve never used it…so cannot comment on it.
Great list of tools Andrew. I am lagging behind when it comes to twitter and followers.
One thing I noticed is that these days it seems like lots of people are only focusing on the number of followers they can get and not the quality.
Some people even buy followers, whcih everyone knows most of those twitter accounts are created once and never used again.
I mean what good is it if you get 1000s of followers who basically will never see and read any of your tweets?…
There should be a little more emphasis on getting followers who are actually interested in your content.
I very much agree – do a search on Twitter for the keywords for your niche.
That way you find much better quality Tweeters!
Same here. You made a good point. 1000 machine followers are no good. You should target real people who are interested in your niche. Andrew did mention to search for keywords in your niche but i’m wondering if there’s a tool for twitter to make things easier. Thanks
you do not mention tweetadder, i may suggest you to try out tweetadder.
while it allow to generate a list of people to follow by using keywords and location.
it able to auto follow the list you generate, unfollow those do not follow you back and follow who follow you.
It amazing tool to get lot of followers in the short time.
