101 Top Twitter Tools of 2016

 If you know one thing about me is that I love Twitter, and I love social media tools – and Twitter, thankfully, has a lot of them! Over the years, I’ve tried out as many Twitter tools and apps as I could get my hands on. Some were great, some not so great, a few made it in the long run and others died out pretty quickly.

Which is why I’ve put together this list of top 101 Twitter tools of 2016. There’s something for everyone in here, from the complete dashboard to niche tools such as for analytics, or for building better relationships on Twitter.

    Hi Lilach,

    I wish I had known you were doing this huge roundup. While you did include two of my favorites that I use all the time (Inkybee, Twitterfeed and MavSocial). You missed one important tool I have running that gets a lot of views and connections: Staged.

    Two others worth mentioning are Oktopost and Socedo. I have comprehensive posts that explain these two if you’d like to see them. You could add them as a bonus at the bottom. Just ask me on Skype if you’d like the links.

    Hey I know this is off topic but I was wondering if you knew of any widgets I could
    add to my blog that automatically tweet my newest twitter updates.

    I’ve been looking for a plug-in like this for quite some time and was hoping
    maybe you would have some experience with something like this.
    Please let me know if you run into anything.
    I truly enjoy reading your blog and I look forward
    to your new updates.

  11. Pascal on 2016-11-02 at 8:36 pm

    Great List. This is the largest list of best twitter tools I’ve seen. Also, you might like to add: Find70. Find70 allows you to search for twitter accounts using filters such as what the target follows, twitter bio, follower/friend count, location and whether or not they have contact info listed (email/ phone number), how active they are. It also let’s you define your own weighting formula for the filters too.

    • Lilach Bullock on 2016-11-03 at 9:03 am

      Thanks Pascal, I’m not familiar with Find70 – always useful to learn of other tools!

    Hello would you mind sharing which blog platform you’re working with?

    I’m going to start my own blog soon but I’m having
    a difficult time selecting between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal.

    The reason I ask is because your layout seems different then most blogs and I’m looking for something completely unique.
    P.S Sorry for being off-topic but I had
    to ask!
