Like it or not. Twitter has quickly transformed into a marketing tool.

    Good roundup, I’m sure we’ll be seeing a lot more of these types of applications and programs popping up as Twitter grows in popularity. Anyone have any input on which ones might work the best (if you used them)?

  • http://www.dctheblog.com Alana, Author of Domestically Challenged

    Great list! Tweetlater has a new name now and I don’t know about others, but they lost all my old tweets and still haven’t heard back from customer service.

    Thanks for the info!

    Hey, TweetLater is now called Socialoomph (http://www.socialoomph.com/)

    Why? I have no idea. Liked the other name better. But hey, I’m just the messenger…

    I am using twaitter these days. It is one of the best site for scheduling your tweets.

  • BlogrPro

    I am not using any of these tools. Just tried TweetDeck and I am still using twitter from web only.

  • http://twaitter.com Cody

    I’ve tried all of these and prefer http://twaitter.com (#7 above).

    It has the most options and the best interface

    Raju,

    Great list thanks for sharing it. I will star using any one of them.

  • Pierre-Julien Grizel

    Hi,

    Great round-up !

    I think you should also have a look at @justinvincent’s TweetMiner (www.tweetminer.com), it has the most comprehensive set of delaying options (especially the ability to schedule tweets evenly in time).

    Hi Raju
    Thanks for this cool list. I use Socialoumph and Twuffer. Socialoumpph is a very good free tool with excellent reactivity and you can do many tasks within the free tool. Twuffer is also fine but just to schedule tweets. Anyway, will go and check some of your suggestions. Thanks for your work.

    A list but it needed more for me. What I needed extra was which operating system they all worked on. You did say one was on all platforms as it was Java based.

    As a Linux user I am assuming you are like most Windows users and think there is no other operating system outside of that. (Though you might have heard of a Mac??)

    I will have a look to see if I can use any of them.

    Really love http://laterbro.com for this. It’s simple and clean and does what it is supposed to do very well: scheduling tweets (from multiple twitter accounts) and facebook updates.

  • http://profileify.com Chris

    Android phone users can schedule tweets from their handsets using Tasker. It’s a very simple Tasker task.

    I have been looking around for a list of Twitter applications to automate my tweets. It takes alot of work sending tweets and each tweets seems to last about an hour and another tweet is needed. I have been checking out some of the applications and they seem useful. I basically want to save time and concentrate on making great content and not spending all day tweeting. Thanks for the info.
