The Best 5 Twitter Services You Might Not Know

Posted by on Tuesday, December 15th, 2009


It took a while to find a balance of fun and utility versus timewasting, but I now love Twitter. There is just enough signal in the noise to keep me involved. I imagine most of you will have tried the service by now, but did you know third party services are being built around Twitter all the time?

Here are my five most favorite recent Twitter service finds:

  1. Tagged Tweets – If you want to follow what is being said about a conference, news event or category, tag tweets with #keyword then check out Hashtags
  2. Follow the herdWho has the most Twitter followers in the world? In your country?

  3. Conversation Stats – See if you are one of the top 10 Twitter conversationalists, who gets more replies, how many replies do you send?
  4. Be alertedTwitter Tracking allows you to be notified in SMS or IM any time a Twitter user mentions a keyword.
  5. Feed it Twitterfeed allows you to auto-post content from your RSS feeds as Tweets. Promote your blog articles or social bookmarking links. Now you won’t be lost for something to say.

+1 Bonus: Send gifts – Do you love somebody enough to send them a Tweetgift? Very silly and pointless in a Facebook/MySpace kind of way, but fun all the same.

Know of any others? Please let me know in the comments!
