Due to my twitter obsession…

From twitterberry to twhirl, I am addicted to leaving posts, checking other tweets and reading interesting sites tweeted by my twitter associates. I check my replies, direct messages and look for people to follow who can add value to my feed and provide me with resources I might not have found otherwise…it is the amazing world of twitter!

Because my obsession is well-known, I was recently asked by a few newcomers and a social media enthusiast to compile a list of twitter applications I use to optimize my ability to stay connected.

So here goes a quick overview:

Twitterberry – Twitterberry is a Blackberry application that allows you to update, read your feed, get replies, send replies and direct messages, and view the public timeline.

Twhirl – Twhirl is for Mac users. It is a desktop application that allows you to be logged in and read your updated twitter feed, reply, send direct messages, mark tweets as favorites, follow new people and a few other capabilities. It shows a pop-up when you receive replies or direct messages and every so often when updates are posted by your followers.

Search function – The twitter search function is useful when searching for terms or finding people by name or location.

Twitter groups – Twitter groups are great for finding people with similar interests and adding them as followers. You can also join a group and your twitter name will be featured for others to see and follow you.

Tweetbeep – Tweetbeep is just like Google alerts. You set up Tweetbeep to track when determined keywords are tweeted. Tweetbeep will search hourly, daily or weekly and you can sign-in to your tweetbeep account to check for tweets

Twitterfeed – Twitterfeed automatically posts blog feeds as you add entries.

These are just some of the many tools you can use to get the most from twitter…so give them a try and happy tweeting!
