Plus I’ve also added a bonus that will help you hack twitter and get the best results with little effort.
bitly helps you collect, organize, shorten and share links. We are currently reinventing how people discover and share content on the web. When you sign up for bit.ly you can see all the stats in your dashboard from all your tweets, you can manage multiple accounts also. As an added bonus, you can even create your own custom short domain to match your brand.
Some of the online celebrities using bit.ly are: Darren Rowse, Mari Smith, and Joast de Valk.
Paper.li is a content curation service. It enables people to publish newspapers based on topics they like and treat their readers to fresh news, daily.
It’s a great tool to drive traffic to those site that are mentioned on the paper.li (like your followers or people you follow), and in most cases they’ll be thankful you’ve shared their tweets.
Triberr in their own words, it is a reach multiplier. There’s really no better way to explain it.
All you do is plug your RSS feed in and members of your tribe will tweet each new post. When you get invited to become a member, sign up, then you can set yourself up to do automatic tweeting of other member’s posts or manual tweeting when you have reviewed and approved of the posts. I personally just copy my Triberr tweets into HootSuite for full scheduling control.
TweetDeck is your personal real-time browser, connecting you with your contacts across Twitter, Facebook, MySpace, LinkedIn, Foursquare, Google Buzz and more.
This is my favorite and it’s the only tool I’m using on my iPhone and my Macbook. Once you get familiar with TweetDeck you can do more than just Retweet a link. The reason I like it is because you can create new columns to manage different keywords and competitors.
Hootsuite is a social media dashboard. That’s what it is. Start saving your time and your sanity. Monitor and post to multiple social networks, including Facebook and Twitter. It’s also a free tool if you have under 5 different social profiles, but if you manage more than 5 you can always go pro for a small monthly fee.
CoTweet is a comprehensive Web-based social media engagement, management and reporting solution that helps companies of all sizes engage, track and analyze conversations about their brands across the most popular and influential social communities today, Twitter and Facebook.
Is this basically the tool big brands are using. This tool really empowers businesses to engage on the web, listen to the conversations about your business, and measure the impact of engagement, reach and influence. Companies are using it to build stronger customer relationships. I’ve heard only good things about this tool.
SocialOomph is a service that provides free and paid productivity enhancement services for social media users. It offers some of the same features like other tools, for example, scheduling tweets, manage multiple accounts free, automate the following of those who follow you and more.
Twitterfeed allows you to add RSS feeds (yours and others) to be shared on auto-pilot through your Twitter, Facebook, and other social media accounts each time there is a new update to them. You can customize the tweets to show the title of the new post, the link (shortened by your preferred URL shortener), and even add a RT @username or via @username so you let the blogger know you’re always tweeting their posts.
