ID-10088195I know that I have been remiss in giving you part 2 of Twitter Tools to Make Your Life Easier. Side note: if you’re not on Twitter by now, you should be. I have made more targeted connections on Twitter than any other social media platform. But there are so many tools out there, that I have to make sure I bring you only the best. There won’t be a lot on today’s list because I don’t want you to be overwhelmed. So here are some awesome tools to help enhance your social media experience in the Twitterverse.

Tweet Button – Have you ever been on a really cool website that you just had to share with your followers. Well, Tweet Button is the tool for you. It’s an Chrome browser extension that gives you the ability to tweet a website to your followers. It also shortens the link for you automatically. You will have download the extension though.

TweetDeck – Owned by Twitter, it is similar to Hootsuite. But it is meant to only manage your Twitter accounts. Like Tweet Button, you can download the Chrome extension for use. You can also download to your desktop for Mac or PC. The downside is it’s not supported on mobile devices. But it’s still very useful

TweetChat – Love engaging in Tweet Chats? Then check out Tweet Chat. You don’t have to download anything, but you do have to give it permission to have access to your Twitter account. The site is very user friendly. Just type in the hashtag you want to follow and get going. When you send tweets, it adds the hashtag for you and you follow the chat in real time.

Now those are all the tools for now, but now here are a few tips. It’s perfectly ok to repeat your tweets. Twitter moves quickly, and if some of your followers miss your tweet the first time around, sending again increases visibility. But don’t be spammy. And try not to have your tweets sound like ads. People who are noticed on Twitter a usually sending 10-50 tweets a day. Don’t feel bad for using tools like Hootsuite or TweetDeck. You aren’t the only one using them. And here’s one last tip. Many small businesses decrease their tweeting over the weekend. But people tend to spend more time on Twitter on the weekends than during the week. So be sure to have tweets ready to go on the weekends as well.

Well, that’s all for now. But be on the look out for part 3 coming soon.
