The Weibo platform, Twitter, and how the storm impacted the online marketing world. Although Twitter is very easy to use, the number of tools, plug-ins and applications developed is too large to support it. How to determine which is best for you to use Twitter? I tried to sort, although all the rubbish, and came up with my 7 basic Twitter tools:
Unless you have been hiding from the rocks, you may have heard something about the new microblogging platform Twitter, and Twitter is a bit of a big ups and downs in the Internet marketing world. This phenomenon even gave birth to a new language, new you, new Twitter (followers), Twitter (posting) you, and discussing the state of the Twitter universe (the ideas you get here).
Although Twitter is very easy to use, the number of tools, plug-ins and applications developed is too large to support it. I came across a blog that listed more than 100. How to determine which is best for you to use Twitter?
I tried to sort, though all the rubbish, and came up with my 7 basic Twitter tools:
1. Twitter Fox. It is actually a Firefox browser plug-in that allows you to follow your tweets and any direct (private) messages in your way. Tweetdeck and Twhirl also help you take care of your tweets and tweeps, and are well received by users, but I prefer the simplicity of Twitterfox. All I can do is to check the Twitter logo in the bottom right corner of any browser window to check my tweets and reply to whatever I want.
2. Tweet Rattle. The TweetLater.com feature allows diehard Twitter users to stock up tweets that can be scheduled to be posted within a period of time. However, the reason why I like it is that I can forward the email and follow me to my TweetLater email address, and I will automatically receive a direct message from me. I just like it when I can automate my marketing tasks!
3. Twitter feed. This service will enable you to feed your blog posts to your Twitter account. You can control how often Twitter displays your blog posts, as well as the text used to post as the blog source. I use “blog update” as the preface of my post.
4. Twitter search. This website provides a quick way to search for specific topics or keywords posted by people in the twitterverse.
5. Tweet bee. The equivalent of a Google Twitter alert, it allows you to track mentions of your name, product, company, or anything else you want to track.
6. Twitter out loud. LoudTwitter is a bridge that publishes daily tweets to blogs. Your blog is an archive of your tweets and other posts. These posts will provide more context. After all, if you have a blog and the same Twitter, your blog may be the core place you want to be discovered and hanged on.
7. Png.fm. Although not technically a Twitter tool, I quickly got tired of manually updating my status settings on all my social networking sites. So, I started using Ping.fm. When you update your status on Ping.fm, the service will automatically update the status of all your social networking sites (such as Twitter, Facebook, Plurk, Pownce), such as the following websites (you can update 21). Depending on the number of networks you use, you will need 10-50 minutes to connect your Ping.fm account to your various social network accounts. However, once everything is set up, you only need to log in to your Ping account, post an update (no more than 140 characters), and your status will be automatically upgraded to all your social network profiles. I use this tool to post tweets, but use Twitterfox to post my @replies to my followers.
Although Twitter was originally a fashion, it has not disappeared. Use these tools to maximize the use of Twitter to enhance your social network!
