Part 3 of 3- Twitterrific! The Most Useful Web 2.0 Apps/Tools For Twitter

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:

41. Twitter Toolbar: Downloading this free toolbar gives you instant access to Twitter. You can use the toolbar to access online Twitter tools, check your Twitter stats, post your updates and more. Versions are available for both Firefox and Internet Explorer.

42. Monitter: Get a live streaming view at what Twitter users in your location are saying about you or your small business. Simply insert keywords you would like to search for and the surrounding area you would liked monitored.

43. Bubble Tweet: This unique application lets you post a short video message that pops up on your Twitter profile in a bubble shaped player. You can personally introduce yourself and/or your business to anyone who visits your profile.

44. Tweepler: Simplify the way you manage your Twitter followers. Tweepler enables you to easily sort through new followers and accept them or ignore them on one simple screen. They have made accepting followers easier by giving the Tweepler user the followers stats and last 3 tweets in one screen view. This will save you time by eliminating the need to visit each individual follower’s profiles.

45. HelloTxt: Update your status to several social networking sites in one simple step. You can choose from over 35 social sites to post to including Twitter.

46. TwitterFox: This Firefox extension can post Twitter updates without visiting the Twitter site each time. A small icon is added to the bottom of your Firefox status bar. The icon opens to reveal your friend’s most current updates. You can add your updates from that dialog box, even for multiple Twitter accounts.

47. TwitPic: Share your favorite pictures on Twitter. This would be a good way to introduce your new product to your network of followers.

48. twtQpon: Create exclusive coupons for products or services and share them with your Twitter followers.

49. Tweetburner: This site is designed to help you track your tweets. You can shorten URLs and track the clicks your tweets accumulate.

50. Tweetbeep: Just like Google Alerts, Tweetbeep tracks
Twitter conversations that mention you, your business or your products and services. Alerts are sent to you via email.

51. Group Tweet: This app enables all employees within your company to post updates which can be privately viewed only by your group of approved members.

52. Twitter Safe: This free service protects your years of hard work building your community of followers. This one click backup will restore your network of followers in the event that your list is compromised.

53. Twitxr: Post pictures and updates from your mobile phone directly to Twitter.

54. Track This: This app enables tracking of any UPS, USPS, FedEx or DHL shipment. Updates are sent to your Twitter account direct messages whenever your package changes location.

55. CoTweet: lets your company manage one Twitter account while allowing several employees to contribute. Each person maintains their own identity and their activity can be monitored.

56. Tweet Later: This one application contains several Twitter productivity tools. You can track keywords, track replies, schedule tweets, send welcome direct messages, and much more.

57. Twimailer: Sign up to receive more extensive email notifications when your account obtains new followers. Instead of the generic Twitter email notification; the email contains the followers location, followers stats and their most recent tweets. At the bottom of the email, you can choose to follow the individual without even visiting Twitter.

58. Digsby: Keep track of everything your followers are doing at all times. The Digsby box display gives you a real time view into your Twitter account right from your browser.

59. HootSuite: Easily manage multiple Twitter profiles, pre-schedule tweets and measure your progress. You can even add multiple editors to your business profile.

60. TwitterHawk: This marketing app helps you connect with consumers in your area and related to the keywords you choose. TwitterHawk will send Twitter users your custom response when they tweet your keyword in locations that you specify. It’s like an auto responder for Twitter. Let’s say you’re holding a conference and you want your response to reach anyone within a 50 mile radius of your location- when someone 7 miles away tweets about “looking for a Gov2.0 conference,” your pre-written response will automatically be sent to that person.

61. Twitalyzer: is a unique tool to evaluate the activity of any Twitter user and report on relative influence, signal-to-noise ratio, generosity, velocity, clout, and other useful measures of success in social media.

62. TweetBrain: is a crowdsourcing service powered by the Twitter community, in the form of an open call. {crowdsourcing is the act of taking a task and outsourcing it to an undefined, large group of people}, It enables you to get a best answer to your question rapidly, and show your value to others well beyond your followers. You may view it as Twitter Answers, but it is capable of much more. This is a very powerful app.

63. Twellow: is an advanced “yellow pages” for the Twitter
community. It categorizes and organizes Twitter into hundreds of niches to make searching for followers much easier. *BONUS*: Twellow also includes an additional app called TwellowHood. This app allows you to locate people by geographical maps to connect with. Simply click on any state to zoom in for a list of people that TwellowHood finds close to you. You’ll then be able to see a list of cities identified as having users located in them and view the users in each.

64. Nambu: is a network of services for social messaging, (Mac Users Only- OS X 10.5+), deeply integrated into a client software to maximize the user experience. Only just starting with Twitter and FriendFeed, Nambu plans to integrate more services into this great looking app. *BONUS*: Nambu now offers Nambu Touch for the iPhone- an integrated Twitter, Friendfeed, Ping.fm, tr.im and pic.im, client all rolled into one. You can review timelines, send updates, retweet, access Twitter Search, and a lot more. VERY COOL.

65. cuzo: is a powerful Twitter-enabled micro blogging tool mashed with some very useful applications. Post your important entries in real time with the help of max 140 characters! Share images, movies, music and files. Other features include: Lifestreaming (RSS) of posts; Threaded comments; Groups; Gravatar.com support; Updating and receiving of threaded comments from Twitter; and I believe the most useful: Jabber/GTtalk notifications. The Jabber notification feature alone is amazing, (Jabber is one of the most powerful SaaS applications a government agency can use. It has recently been approved for use by a nifty GSA contract).

66. twitrans: Translate Your Tweets to Any Language by Human Translators. Nice.
