OK, So I have blogged in the past about being less than impressed by Twitter, but I am slowly coming round to it as a marketing tool. I remain uninterested in sharing the ins and outs of my personal life on there – who care what I had for lunch or if my train was delayed? But, tweeting out about e107 or netbooks or anything relevant to my sites does seem to be of interest to people out there. Not only that but it is quite fun chatting and talking to random people :)!
The Best Twitter Client
Anyway, the pros and cons of twitter have been done to death, this post is about the best twitter client I have used to date, a piece of software that finally makes twitter a pleasure to use!
Check out: hootsuite.com/
This Client provides some really cool features:
- Manage multiple accounts at once: I have a different account for each site for example if you are interested in affiliate marketing and e107 then you will want to follow me here. If you like netbooks then check out this twitter account. This is an awesome feature and definitely something any new client needs to do.
- RSS to Twitter: Hootsuite can automatically tweet out your new posts straight to your twitter account, this is great for keeping your readers updated on your new posts. But remember twitter is there for social interaction so don’t just rely on these automated postings!
- Tabs and more tabs: You can organise the app in any way you like, you can have a tab for each profile, tabs for groups of searches or followers, it is up to you. This makes it easy to keep in touch with what’s going on all from one place
- Browser Based: I love this, once you have your view set up and your account registered you can login from anywhere. You have the power of twitter+hootsuite from any PC. It runs like a dream in Google Chrome.
And that’s just a couple of the things that made me swap over from my previous client. There is a lot more to explore and new features are being added.
This app has really changed how I use twitter for the better, definitely recommended!
