  1. Hi Wayne! Thanks for posting this - the amount of tools for Twitter is truly dazzling and it helps to have a list once in a while.
    I hope you don't mind if I disagree with some of the recommendations - my comments are purely from my own experience and point of view:
    3. I just turned off Visibly because I felt that it got more attention than my own brand
    6. TrueTwit is on my pet-peeve list - I feel that it increases DM-Spam and has no effect to screen out bots... partly because shady accounts and bots often use it to hide behind. Fortunately I don't see many TrueTwit requests anymore. I used TrueTwit when I started with Twitter but I'm glad I got away from it.
    7. Twit Longer: IMHO the charm of Twitter is in the 140 character rules. It takes very little effort to learn how to keep it short.

    Thanks for the link to Twitter Split - I'll check it out.
    Sorry for the rant ;-) Tweet you later

  2. Thanks for sharing...I use tweepi and, but would love to check out the rest...

  3. Thanks for the list of Twitter tools, Wayne. I tried Visibli but the toobar kind of bugged commenters when I used it on my blog. Haven't gone back and put it on Twitter, although I've seen that top bloggers use it. Probably should.

  4. i also use those applications through we can increase our followers,
