Been looking for a few Twitter tools and found a few that are pretty interesting.
First, in reference to Twitter Quitters, There’s a service that will alert you when someone quits following your Twitter account.Â Â It’s called Qwitter, and I’ve signed up but, fortunately, haven’t seen anyone stop following me.Â Without Qwitter, when you start getting a lot of followers, it gets hard to find out who stopped following you.Â But with Qwitter, when someone stops following you, you get an email like so:
John Gruber (gruber) stopped following you on Twitter after you posted this tweet:
What’s the difference between Arial and Helvetica?
In addition, you can track your followers, where they come from, your links, RTing, growth rate, friends, mentions, growth, etc.
I started playing with it and couldn’t stop.Â Then I had to tell a friend and we went over it more together.Â I don’t have a ton of followers yet, but if you look at Ashton Kutcher’s account, aplusk, you’ll see much more cool data.Â Â I imagine this gets better when you have more users.
Splitweet, is a cool little application that let’s you manage multiple Twitter accounts.Â I signed in and quickly added 4 accounts and then it lets you tweet to any or all of them at once.Â It was really easy to tweet once to 4 accounts.Â Of course, you don’t always want to do that, especially if your accounts are all very specific, but for ease of use and twittering to multiple accounts, it was very easy.Â They also offer desktop apps, but I haven’t tried that, but why would I need to now?
WordPress Plug in, Twitter Tools.Â Â This is a great plugin to connect your Twitter account with your blog and vice versa.Â Â I use it and as soon as I publish this, it will get sent to my Twitter account.Â Also, if I Tweet via Twitter, it’ll show up over there to the right in my Twitter update list.
That’s all for today, more another day.
Enjoy the weekend!
