If you’ve been following my blogs over the years, you’ll likely know how much I love Twitter tools – and that every year, I like to make a list of the top Twitter tools.
Why make this list every year? It’s simple, really; new, useful tools pop up all the time and it’s also interesting to see which tools are still around, how they’re evolving, which aren’t as popular this year and so on.
In this blog post, I’m going to share the 101 top Twitter tools of the year:
101 Top Twitter Tools of 2019:
If you use social media marketing a lot, social media dashboards are a must. They help you save a lot of time by unifying all of your different profiles under one dashboard, so that you can post directly to your social accounts, schedule updates, get your mentions, set up monitoring searches and much more.
Here are my favourite social media management tools for Twitter, in no particular order:
Agorapulse is a social media management tool for Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, Google+ and LinkedIn – but, obviously, we are going to focus on Twitter features here.
You can use Agorapulse to monitor and respond to your mentions in the Social Inbox, to publish and schedule updates (they also provide a good editorial calendar for planning your schedule) and there are also monitoring features with multiple keywords, keywords to avoid and location/language settings, Twitter reports and a very handy CRM tool which tells you whether you have any influencers or brand ambassadors following you.101 Top #Twitter #Tools of the year @agorapulse via @lilachbullockClick To Tweet
