Twitter Tools

Your Twitter homepage is a great place to manage your Twitter account, however it isn't very convenient for reading and posting with any regularity. Thankfully there is a solution.

Twitter  tools, Twitter apps, Twitter clients; what ever you want to call them, are light-weight, unobtrusive applications that stay open on your desktop conveniently allowing you follow incoming Tweets as well as post them. These applications can simplify Replying and ReTweeting, as well as aid in organizing and tracking messages.

Many of these Twitter applications are free and available for a variety of platforms including Windows, Macintosh, as well as Windows Mobile, BlackBerry, Android, Palm and iPhone. I have listed some of the more popular ones below. Since many are free you can play around and see which works best for you.

Tweet Like The Elite - #Hashtags

Hash Tags
With millions of new Tweets everyday so it can be difficult to search for Tweets related to a topic you want to follow. For example if you were to search Winter Warriors any Tweet that contained instances of those two words would be pulled up,  not matter theer context.

Hashtags are an organizational tool that can be included in Tweets to help assist in indexing them so they are easier to searched and found.

A Hashtag begins the pound sign (#) followed by a word/s with no spaces.
For Instance:

If people used this Hashtag, #winterwarrior, whenever they Tweeted about the Winter Warriors you could easily search for Tweets referencing the CES training program by entering Hashtag into the Twitter search.

Note: Your Hashtag is part of your 140 characters of your Tweet,  so it is best to come up with those that are concise and clear.
