Cool Twitter Tools

Do you use Twitter? The short conversation (or some say “micro blogging” ) tool is a great way to keep in touch with your friends, family, business partners and clients.

There are many tools out there that interact with Twitter, and an internet search will bring up lots of top 10 Twitter tools lists, but a couple of tools have come to my attention as I’ve been using them for clients recently. The first is Twitterbacks created by Jim Kukral.

Essentially a selection of free Photoshop files that you can download and use as templates for your Twitter profile page. Very easy to use, and free. Yaro Starak reports that he has noticed “Twitter.com profile pages are starting to rank in Google really well. Might be an SEO strategy there!” and so isn’t it time you looked at your profile page? My Twitter profile page needs a bit of work I admit, but I’m waiting for my new blog design to create a consistent image – oh yes, a new blog design is coming soon but more on that sometime soon!

The second is a plugin called TweetSuite that can display TweetBacks on your site (like Trackbacks or Pingbacks, above your comments), automatic tweeting of new posts, and many other features that you can choose to use or not.

While you’re playing around with Twitter, why not follow me? Do you have any other Twitter tools, tips or tricks you would like to share?

  1. This is great info about Twitter. I had never really thought about Twitter ranking well in Google, I can definitely some potential there with the profile pages.

    Another great Twitter tool, that has nothing to do with plugins, that I use Tweetdeck. It refreshes automatically, allows you to group followers, and shows @ replies and DM’s all in one screen. Pretty slick and handy.
