100 Twitter Tools

March 12, 2009

I predict eventually, Twitter will overtake Facebook in popularity, but it will take a while… most people don’t really understand Twitter or how it can be used to your advantage. But as Jimmy Falon’s experiment shows, Tweets are ideas spreading like wild fire.

Granted, the first few days you really get immersed in Twitter you can easily lose yourself to time suckage. (Do I really need to know that Imogen Heap is craving pancakes? Or that Kevin Pollak is Tweeting during a big Hollywood meeting? Actually, that’s pretty cool…)
But the more you use it and see how others use it, the more productive you can become.

For instance, I used to visit about 50 different sites a day for news, entertainment, web stuff, etc., now I just follow the Twitter feeds all in one place. In theory this is what RSS readers are for, but that always felt very oppressive and overwhelming to me for some reason.

The trick is to find information worth following — search.twitter.com and the below tools can assist with this.

I’ve only checked out about 10% of these links, so I’ll be coming back to this post as well:
