Some cool Twitter tools

Searching around,I wanted to find some cool tools to make my twittering much easier and more fun. In my search, I found these interesting apps. Some you might have heard of or used before and others,you might’ve not. First off, a little background for those not familiar with Twitter ,is a free social networking and micro-blogging service that allows its users to send and read other users’ updates (otherwise known as tweets), which are text-based posts of up to 140 characters in length.

Twhirl

Some of twhirl’s features:
runs on both Windows (2000/XP/Vista) and Mac OSX
connects to multiple Twitter, laconi.ca, Friendfeed and seesmic accounts
notifications on new messages
shorten long URLs (using snurl, twurl or is.gd)
cross-post twitter updates to Pownce and Jaiku
post images to TwitPic
search tweets using Twitter Search and TweetScan
timeline filtering
color schemes
automatically checks for new versions

Twitpic

Twitpic is just a good and simple way to post pictures with captions to your personal twitter account. You can post through the website or some third party app like twhirl or Twitterific, for the Apple users. The point is to use this and not have to go somewhere else, post there, then post to twitter or link to twitter.

TwitterMaps

Basically,Google maps and twitter joined forces so you can update your location and send a tweet about it.

Twiddeo

This a powerful but simple service that let’s you do one thing very well: Twitter updates with Video.
Upload from the web, your cameraphone and record from your webcam. That simple, that straightforward, that great! It is still in beta format and has a few bugs but, I’m sure for those that like making videos this, is for you!

Twitslikeme

You enter your twitter screenname and it searches for other twitterers “supposedly” that are like you based on your updates! I’m on the fence with this one…

    I’d just like to add another twitter app to the mix. Check out feedalizr (http://www.feedalizr.com), it’s also an Adobe Air app. Has full Twitter client support and great filtering when your Twitter stream gets too noisy.
