The Ultimate List of Twitter Tools

Share:

Welcome to the Ultimate List of Twitter Tools.

This list of Twitter tools was initially 5x – 10x the length it is today, however changes to the Twitter API and lack of continued development have caused the majority of tools on this list to fall off.

This is a living list, so if you are aware of any new Twitter Tools that are not yet on the list, or if you notice that some of the tools on this list are no longer live please leave a comment below and let me know.

As far as I can tell all Twitter tools on this list are free, although some have premium options that are only available to paying members.

Nonetheless all tools in this list add value in one way or another and I hope you get a ton of value out of them.

Enjoy the Twitter Tools! 🙂

    How can I hide “Following” and :Followers” ?

  3. Niamh April 21, 2013 at 7:46 pm #

    Hi there! Quick question that’s completely off topic. Do you know how to make your site mobile friendly? My website looks weird when viewing from my iphone4. I’m trying to find a theme or plugin that might be able to correct this issue.
    If you have any recommendations, please share.

    Thank you!

    Thank you for the list!
    I really appreciate it.

  5. Jeff Mellin March 30, 2013 at 1:33 am #

    Wow – you single handedly have restored my hope for claims of “The Definitive…”, “The Complete…”, “The Ultimate…”. Very impressive collection.

    I’d recommend adding Embedle

    http://www.embedle.com

    as a quiet company doing big things such as creating a “Twitter-CRM” capability that bridges Twitter and the client web site.

  6. Klaus February 22, 2013 at 12:54 pm #

    Wow that was strange. I just wrote an really long comment but after I
    clicked submit my comment didn’t appear. Grrrr… well I’m not writing all that over again.
    Regardless, just wanted to say great blog!

  7. Suzanne July 26, 2012 at 11:05 pm #

    Is there a website where I can "bank" tweets? I would like to type out 50 or so information- related tweets and cut/paste, or post them as I wish, maybe 1/day. Any suggestions. Thank you!

    PS even if Hootsuite does this, it does not count characters, so it is not helpful.

  8. JackPoint July 12, 2012 at 11:57 pm #

    http://useqwitter.com/ is also missing in the list.

    This is really amazing Garin. A wealth of Twitter info. I'm curious if you have a section on t.co link tracking or not and third party shorteners working with new Twitter embedding. Some work and some don't as far as I have seen. Great stuff here! Thanks.
