If you are trying to implement twitter in your business or government social networking efforts, these apps and tools may “expand your horizons” for better use. Second twenty for review:

21. Mr. Tweet: is a personal networking agent who helps expand a network easily by recommending you to relevant followers, helping you discover people relevant to your needs, and improving your Twitter usage via useful statistics. http://mrtweet.net/

22. TwitterBerry: a mobile client for BlackBerry that gives you the power to post updates to Twitter. It works over the data network, so you don’t need to use SMS. http://www.orangatame.com/products/twitterberry/

23. ExecTweets: a cooperative product of Twitter, Federated Media and Microsoft, it features Twitter feeds from “top business execs.” There are a few other cool features here that Twitter should adopt. http://www.exectweets.com/

Check out: Birdhouse – new tool on I-Tunes for i-phone that allows you store draft Twitter messages for editing before sending them out. Just came out Monday and is #4 application.

Think how different life would be if the symbol of Twitter had been a pig or a hippo or something just as intimate! Would you be as keen on all of this if we were “snorting” at each other, rather than “Tweeting?”

David K. Shepherd

Birdhouse is Really Good, worth the $4. Tweetie ($3) is by far may favorite iPhone twitter App, but TwitterFon (free) is a good start if you are trying out twitter. Qwitter is good in theory, but has been working in fits and starts. I get nothing for a week, then a huge blast…

Gordon Barnes

These look great – thanks !!

I’ve found Tweetgrid – http://tweetgrid.com/ – to be a pretty easy search and respond utility, as well. I don’t think you mentioned that in this or your earlier post.

A lot of people posting and passing jobs around twitter, I’ve noticed.


Thanks for the expansive list of “tewific” twitter tools and apps. These tools and apps should prove very useful to many!

Shepherd- all really good comments; @Kathleen Smith- thanks.; @Daniel Hudson- very funny!!! Good tip; @Gordon Barnes- thanks. It’s in “part 3”!; @Joe Lewis- good one.
