  1. This is my twitter profile http://twitter.com/umitnamli

    Although I’m not a Twitter fan (yet) .

    The list you’ve compiled is pretty good and I hope you get some good SM traffic from it.

  2. 102 resources…

    The Ultimate Men with Pens Guide to Twitter.

    And I’ll get smacked and held in mod for two links, but here you go. Follow James from Men with Pens on Twitter

    Cheers, Steven. Good list.

  3. James,
    Thanks for the addition. Sorry I missed that one. Guess what, your comment didn’t get held in moderation. I guess it’s set to hold comments with 3 links.

  4. Hey Steven

    That’s a great list and to be honest it crossed my mind a few days ago too but I just don’t have the energy to get back to blogging yet – so this should be added to my master 101 list :)

  5. Pearl,
    I haven’t seen many big collections of Twitter resources, but I knew I couldn’t be the only one thinking of it. I didn’t sit on this post very long because I could picture someone else beating me to it.

  6. I too don’t quite understand how the twitter work. But with this list i think i can manage to get more info for it. Thanks for the links mate!

  7. There’s a bunch of other voice apps for Twitter too chap..

    SpinVox is my tool of choice.

  8. I’ve never really been that interested in Twitter, and all its hype seems to come mostly from America, as here in the UK no one I know personally or at university uses it. At a glance it looks useless, but in a way it’s so useless that it’s useful. I might give a few of these tools a try and see how I get on with Twitter. Great post!

  9. I have to admit, the appeal of twitter eludes me as well. Don’t you just wind up annoying your friends with micro posts about how you’re washing your clothes or watching something on TV? I could also see it being such a distraction that you’d lose a lot of valuable time. Of course, I haven’t tried it, so maybe I shouldn’t knock it …

    - Dave

  10. I’ve just signed up, and I’m reluctant to bore people with my thoughts. Maybe I’m not cut out for this twitter thing? :) Maybe in time I’ll get it.

  11. In your usual style, you kick-butt!
    Super, duper list and sending out to everyone now :-)

    Maria Reyes-McDavis

  12. Wow, I didn’t realise that there are som many twitters application for all purposes and I am going to take some time to check one or two.

  13. good article you have there. kind of informative and very useful. hope to see more in the future.

  14. Haha.. I didn’t bother trying even with Twitter. Lots of people use Twitter for traffic sake which I think it’s wrong =/ It should be more of a social site than a link exchanging site.

  15. Great articles on twitter… Full of information about twitter…appreciate the effort that u made to complete the list.. thanks…

  16. Why haven’t i seen you before…Excellent research and good insight…it depends on what you have the most experience with and there’s so many options, its crazy..

  17. Thanks for taking the time to create this terrific list of Twitter resources (and for including the Business and Blogging post).

    I’m definitely going to bookmark this so that I can refer to it again.

  18. That’s gotta be the most comprehensive Twitter Resource list i’ve seen to date! Many thanks for your effort! This page will definately be on my bookmark!

  19. thats some nice work. bookmarked! could i add you to my site?

  20. This is a wonderful list, I just love that there are so many ways to tweet and so many applications, one might never find time to blog:)

    my twitter is suziecheel

  21. I haven’t seen many big collections of Twitter resources. Thx for link…

  22. Thanks for providing the list of Twitter resources. I’m a big Twitter user myself.

    I’m also working as an intern at Webbed Marketing, a social media marketing agency. As Twitter fans, and fans of 80s rock, we recently recorded a Twibute to Twitter: Pour Some Twitter on Me. I hope you’ll give it a listen, and if you like it, add it to your list of links.

    http://www.webbedmarketing.com/twitter.html

    Thanks, please let me know if I can provide any additional information.

  23. Nice list. Also check out http://www.twitorfit.com launched today.

  24. Ok I’m late to the party….I just came across this list via @LaFemCreative. She posted in response to a comment from a Twitter newbie. What I love the most about this resource list is how you’ve organized the tools and information by category. The first five category descriptions are extremely useful. I wish I had this list when I first started tweeting in Sept.

    Also I noticed that you don’t have a mobile client listed for the Palm OS. There are a ton of Palm Treo users and now the Palm Centro. I just found a mobile client 2 days ago called MoTwit for use with the Palm OS (in case anyone is interested). Perhaps you could include? No affiliation to me. It’s not the best but why should iphone users have all the fun?

    You can find me on Twitter at http://twitter.com/marianhodges

    P.S. WP Twitip plugin just realized in the last month. You can add a twitter id field to the comments area.

    P.S.S. I didn’t include the 2 links (MoTwit and WP Twitip for fear of getting ‘blacklisted’). =)

    Thanks again for fabulous resource!

  25. OK Now I’m really set for greatness!

    GRRRRREAT Post!

  26. So many useful tools and lots of time wasters too. Not sure where to start.

  27. Hey thought I might suggest you can add http://www.hashdictionary.com/ as a resource too – it’s a dictionary for Hashtags, so you can understand what they mean!

  28. Yup thats very true social media is growing each day and we always need people to be on our blog twitter one of the most easiest and superb option to get away.

  29. thats some nice work. bookmarked! could i add you to my site?

  30. Good general list but some of the links are started to become outdated.

    I’ve been created my list of useful Twitter services and resources here:
    http://markettorrent.com/community/1575

  31. Hi Bradley,
    Yes, the post is over a year old, so it is definitely not up-to-date.

  32. Nice resources. Hope to get through some of them soon.

  33. Disappointed to not see our website on the list, nice work though, thanks (:

  34. Good list
    That should be nice if you can number the list

  35. You missed Twitdom! :-(

    We are The Twitter Applications Database with close to 1000 Twitter Apps listed currently

  36. Thank you for the links bro.

  37. Thank you for sharing the information and resources.

  38. Extremely needed resources for all twitter users.

    Social Media Network Guide will make the difference.
    http://twitter.com/socialnetguide

  39. Very comprehensive list…we will include you in our upcoming SocialMediaNetGuide Directory of Social Media and Marketing. And Retweet you @SocialNetGuide Thanks!

  40. Another great one is http://www.tweetmakr.com – I’m surprised this hasn’t existed before.

    It lets you create a custom tweet button that you can paste wherever you like. When a user clicks it, it posts that exact message you define. Great for contests, basic promo stuff!

  41. Once again you have helped solve one of the biggest problems an internet marketer can have, our number one enemy, the lack of time.
    You have created an elegant piece of software…Blog Comment Demon, your simple solution to gaining loads of links and
    in turn a lot of authority by twitter. Thank you for posting this article. It is very helpful and interesting.
