10 Favorite Twitter Tools for Bloggers

This is a list of my favorite Twitter tools that help me the most. I’m sharing them with you as a marketing tip to help you improve your online business. They just make it easier to market online and stay organized as well.

1. Hootsuite – I know there are lots of Twitter desktop clients out there, but Hootsuite is my favorite because of how easy it is to setup and use. It allows you to keep control of multiple Twitter profiles and keep regular track of your Tweets, profile mentions, replies, pending and direct messages – all on one screen. For me, it is the best way to keep using Twitter like a pro. A couple other good popular alternatives are Tweetdeck and Twhirl.

2. Twitterfeed – This amazing tool will let you publish updates from any RSS feed to your Twitter account. You can decide how frequently you want Twitterfeed to check your feed updates and how many updated articles to post to Twitter so that you dont overwhelm your twitter followers with Tweets. You can direct blog feed, photoblog feed, delicious feed, etc. all via Twitterfeed and keep updating your Twitter account automatically.

3. Twitpic – Simply put, TwitPic lets you share photos on Twitter. It lets people get to know you even better, as you share your world in pictures. People like looking a photos, so this a valuable addition to make your Tweets interesting. If you want to share videos, its worth taking a look at Twiddeo or Vidly too.

4. Wickett Twitter Widget – As seen on many blogs on WordPress.com, this widget displays tweets from a Twitter’s account in the sidebar of your blog. It is by far the easiest, lightest and best way to add Tweets to a WordPress blog.

5. Twitter Counter – This is a statistics tools which allows you to show off your Twitter followers count on your blog. It will also show you how rapidly your followers are increasing (or decreasing!) over the week or months. You can also add their Twitter Remote widget to your blog sidebar for more interaction. If you really want to look for the most popular twitter users, catch them on Twitterholic.

6. Twitterberry – is a popular Twitter client for Blackberry mobile phones. It helps you stay connected with your Twitter account anywhere in the world and on the move. You can access your Twitter followers, get replies and post Tweets without your computer. People with Iphone and ipod Touch will like Tweetie, Twitterific or Twitterfon. Other mobile phone users can check the official mobile version of Twitter.

7. Twitter Search Widget – This is the official Twitter widget which provides a cool custom interface to display your own profile search results in your sidebar. It’s an excellent way to show how popular you are on Twitter as hundreds of your profile mentions and replies scroll across your blog every second. There is an official profile widget also if that suits your need better. There is also an official Twitter badge for Blogger.

8. Tweetmeme Button – This nifty button has emerged as the most popular way to get your articles retweeted. Supporting various blogging platforms and websites, a Tweetmeme button is the best way to get retweeted and make your article go viral across Twitter for extra site traffic.

9. Twitbin – This is a Firefox extension that allows you to keep up with all of your Twitter conversations right from your browser sidebar. This really helps you stay connected with your followers while you are busy blogging. Or you can open Twitter 100 in a tab and keep following latest tweets from 100 followers on one screen.

10. Twibbon – This tool lets you add a logo of your website or a cause you support to your Twitter profile avatar. This also enables your supporters to add the same logo to their profiles and show support for your blog or cause and is great to develop a community of supporters and get lots of publicity.
