Twitter is going to celebrate its 11th birthday soon in next month. The micro blogging site has more than 300 active users now which increases rapidly. It has become the part of our daily life by influencing our connections, marketing strategies and even protests around the world. In short, Twitter proved that 140 characters are more than enough to do almost anything in this digital world.
We need to use a couple of tools to get the full functionality of Twitter. I briefly bring some of them in this post. Feel free to share your opinions through the comment section.
TweetDeck is my favorite tool to manage the account. It will show our live home feed, activity, notifications and messages in an elegant single screen. More over than that, it lets you add multiple accounts at once and schedule your tweets in a future date or time.
Unfollowed is an awesome tool to keep track of your followers and unfollowers. It will tell you when a person started unfollowing you at the very next moment.
Manageflitter is another tool used by power users of Twitter. Here you can manage followers in several ways. It will show fake followers in your account, users without profile images, users who are using non-English language in tweets, inactive accounts etc. Inactive users won’t help you in any way. You can unfollow them right from Manageflitter.
