Of all the social networks that exist, my fave by far is Twitter. Why? Well because i don't have to spend my precious time adding dozens of glitter buttons (not that there is anything wrong with that) or filling out numerous quizzes or downloading a million gazillion photos. With that fine introduction to what Twitter is, below are my top picks for twitter tools you should be using if you're a blogger. 1. Twitter Feed - This is where the RSS feed function of Twitter comes into play. I cant' tell you how many times i've come across a feed tweet from a blogger that led to some interesting or useful information. Feed tweets get me all the time from a variety of bloggers. Don't miss out on sharing a great post, use TF. 2. Twirl - This is a neat widget download that allows for the use of Twitter like an instant messenger, as opposed to having a web window open. You can send tweets, receive tweets, fave tweets, share pics, share links, (and my fave feature) you can re-tweet with Twirl. It's free, easy, and fun. A must if you're a blogger. 3. Tweet Later - You can do several things with this one. First you can schedule an upcoming Tweet and have it delivered at a predetermined date and time. 3 very cool features. (hat tip to Sly from Slyvisions on this one) UPDATE: I no longer auto follow or send out automatic DM's. I still think Tweet Later is good for its initial purpose though. 4. Twitter Search - The name says it all. This site allows you to search in real time for whatever topics you want more information on. You type in a search query and it searches all of Twitter for a result. Very addictive. 5. Monitter - I just found this one, but its worthy of mention. It's like Twitter Search, in that it allows you to search. But it displays three columns worth of tweets, as opposed to one. Great for multi-taskers.
