The Twitter universe is flooded with zillions of tools and applications. In this post I give you 13 tools that you can use to manage your Twitter followings and followers. All of the tools in the list below are web based tools. This means you do not have to install any software. Please note that I have taken some information straight from the tool website. I did this on purpose to accurately describe the functionality of that tool.
Friend Or Follow can be used to answer 2 simple questions.
(1)Who are you following that’s not following you back?
(2)Who’s following you that you’re not following back?
Twitter Karma displays a full list of your followings and followers and indicates whether the person is a following, follower or both. Using Twitter Karma you can bulk follow, bulk unfollow and bulk block.
Un Tweeps is a nifty tool to unfollow people who have not posted in a while. If a person is not active in Twitter any more, it is better to unfollow the person to maintain a healthy following:follower ratio. Un Tweeps allows you to do bulk unfollow as well.
Tweet Later allows you to send scheduled Twitter messages. It also includes the ability to auto follow people (i.e you automatically follow everyone who follows you).
Mr. Tweet helps you easily build meaningful relationships by looking through your network and tweets. It provides you the following information:
