Best Twitter tools for scheduling Twitter updates

Tuesday, March 22, 2011

There are many web tools and applications work with Twitter, but all are not equal. I’ve tried few for scheduling Twitter updates and listed the best ones here. Lets   take a quick look at  some features they offer.

1. Twuffer: OMG, It’s a Twitter Buffer!

Twuffer is a web based application that allows the Twitter user to compose a list of future tweets, and schedule their releases. It helps you to sign in with twitter. You can use it to post immediately, but that is not the main intention and benefit of the application. It’s not used for reading tweets but for creating, and tracking your post dated ones.

I bet that you’ll invent creative uses for Twuffer. Here are a few of them :

  • Tweet pre-written announcements
  • Appointment  reminders 
  • Run a time-based scavenger hunt 
  • Appear to never sleep

2. Hootsuite: Social media dashboard 

Hootsuite is one of the most popular services and has been mentioned all over the web, including their web-based original, mobile apps. Fire-fox & crome add-ons, allow you to schedule to TwitterFacebook , LinkedIn,, WordPress, MySpace, and Foursquare,  all with the power to schedule updates. It has attractive themes. The most attractive thing of this app is its social media dashboard where you can handle your Twitter message, mentions, and timeline.

3. twAitter : Manage multiple account

twAitter (soon to be renamed as Gremln) allow you to sign in with Twitter. It is another service for tweeting your schedule tweet to Twitter & let you to post Facebook, It is just one step above a basic scheduling application since they also offer a feed manager, URL shortening (using and the ability to translate your tweets into another language with the simple click of a button.

twAitter Heads up the following characteristics:
  • Manage multiple Twitter accounts through one log in.
  • Grant access to your account to other TwAitter users.
  • See profiles, mentions & timeline all of your accounts.
  • Log in and out of different accounts with a single click.

I use Hootsuite and LOVE IT! It is very easy to use and has so many helpful tools like scheduling tweets, as you mentioned, follow many feeds with up to 10 streams for each feed and their costumer service is great. With the paid version you can bulk schedule tweets, bonus! There is more, just too much to list. These are what id important to me. :-)

Have an awesome day!

Twuffer rocks for a really lousy laptop like mine but if you're really into social networking, Hootsuite takes the loot! :) Haven't tried twAitter yet! Thanks for the share, Ryan! :)

well... so far i use tweetdeck, should try this Ryan... thx

Dave Keller said...

Thanks Ryan! I'm fairly new to being an active blogger, and I'm enjoying it greatly. I will try the Twuffer site. Does it allow a tweet to automatically go out to people who follow you? Does twitter allow that? It would be nice if it did, but then the personal one on one contact is good too. Thanks for helping newbies like myself.

wow this is really helpful since im starting to use twitter nowadays, im interested of that twuffer, thx btw :)

I was hugely disappointed by HootSuite but other two look promising.

Why not Hoot Suite?

Because interface is horridly slow for slower connections and adding my accounts lasts for ever.

Also, I believe that monthly fee is to big.

For the same money accumulated you can buy much better apps and enjoy upgrades and features "4ever".

Cool blog. Looking forward to your next post to wreck it apart. :)))
