Useful Twitter Tools

In this post I am going to round up some useful twitter tools for either the twitter noob or the twitter elite (twitterati) to use. These twitter tools are just informational, analytical and in some cases slightly funny. Instead of giving you a massive list of all the sites that are about twitter, I am giving you a useful list that you can use to help you with Twitter SMO.

Twitter Grader – This one gives a stab at giving you the secret twitter ranking (not 100% accurate but pretty close). It lacks any charts or graphs, but gives you; a tweet cloud, a top ten list of likeminded users and lets you search by city.

Example tweet: @TheDudeDean got a Twitter Grade of 99.7/100 The first time I ranked myself I was a 93
TweetStats – This twitter tool is just raw stats with the best charts and graphs and a tweet cloud.

Follow Cost – This twitter tool is very useful, it tells you how often your new twitter follower tweets broken down in milliscobles This is a very handy for spotting those extra chatty tweople. They also break down follow cost by putting “follow cost, @aholic follow cost (my current level), nuclear follow cost” on top of the user profile page so you clearly know what you are getting into. Follow Cost also breaks down Political Tweets and Replies. Example tweet @TheDudeDean has a follow cost of 349.95 milliscobles.
Retweetist – This twitter tool gives you a bar graph of the last 30 days worth of your retweets. Using this tool can reveal how much social influence a user has or doesn’t have.
Friend or Follow – This twitter tool lets you know who you are following, but they’re not following back and it has a list of your “fans” that you chose not to follow.

Twinfluence – Twitter Influence Analyzer – This twitter tool measures your twitter rank (like grader, its a best guess), your Twitter Reach, Velocity, Social Capital and Centralization

Example: TheDudeDean’s Rank: #1,157 (96%), Velocity: 4,610 second-order followers/day, Social Capital: 2,337.1 +1.3 High, Centralization: 9.98% / +0.2 Average – Resilient

Twitturly – This Twitter tool lets you see what links your prospective twitter follower is tweeting.

Twitter Counter – This twitter tool is analytics for your follower count. Twitter Counter also lets you compare three users. Twitter Counter also has a top 100 list.

    it seems like the tools you mini-reviewed were mostly measurement tools — what is your rank? how much do other people tweet? or how much do they retweet you? i had expected to see other things like tweetdeck or twitterfeed listed here, but they’re not measurement tools. perhaps a better title for the post would be “Useful Twitter Optimization Tools”.

    I like Twitter Grader, they put alot of work in that to make the analytics useful. I hadn’t seen ReTweetist before.. this looks cool and has the right idea. Kind of like TweetMeme to track popularity based on re-tweets.

    You may be interested in an article I wrote featuring useful Twitter apps / tools…
