5 Tools To Build and Maintain Your Twitter Network

TwitterTwitter was initially meant to be a tool to answer the two commonly asked questions – “What you are doing?” and “Where are you?”. But soon after its launch twitter exploded. It became a social networking phenomenon that very few people initially expected it to be. Twitter is now a golden tool for Marketing and Networking, and maintaining a twitter network is more important than you probably think. Here are five tools to get you started.

Arrow Build Your Network

Arrow Twubble : Twubble can help expand your Twitter bubble—it searches your friend graph and picks out people who you may like to follow. Twubble’s suggestions are ordered based on the number of your friends that are following the tweeter. Every suggestion is accompanied by a list of your friends who are following the particular user, his twitter profile picture, link to Google Search page for the person and the Follow button.

Arrow Twits Like Me : This service analyzes your tweets and suggests other Twitter users with similar tweets.

Arrow TwitterLocal : TwitterLocal allows you to find tweeters in your neighborhood. All you have to do is enter your location and TwitterLocal would generate an RSS or XML Feed to filter out tweets around your area. TwitterLocal is also available as an Adobe AIR app so that you can follow folks from your neightbourhood right from your desktop.

Arrow Maintain Your Network

Arrow Twitter Karma : This tool allows you to quickly check out which of your friends are not following you, or which of your followers you are yet to follow. Best of all it allows you to bulk follow/unfollow users. However, there are some issues with this tool and sometimes it displays outdated data.
Still, its an awesome tool and can really come in handy when you are looking to clean up your network.

Arrow My Tweeple : Like Twitter Karma, My Tweeple displays who you are following and who is following you. While Twitter Karma displays a quick overview about your Twitter contacts, My Tweeple provides a more detailed representation of your twitter contacts. It gives you the option to Follow/Unfollow/Block any user. Additionally you get the option to Ding a user. When you Ding a user the user id gets reported to My Tweeple as a spammer and it uses this data to warn others about the rotten apple in the Twitter community.

I hope you find this article useful. And don’t forget to follow me on Twitter.

    If you are using no-script may be you can add this site to the whitelist. I am really reluctant to turn of the spam blocker I have installed as it eliminates spam almost 100%.

    i’m blocking script with noscript on FF and global perf on opera.. but i think i’ll edit your site pref. to allow js.

    when i said visitors i didn’t mean myself .. some other folks might be like me and wanna comment but trusting some site they don’t know might hold their comments.

    Everyone loves consumers who who post often, it’s really challenging to get all type of perception just about every other means. Very good job.
