563,456 Top Twitter Tools Reviewed

Have you noticed there is a fashion to blog about twitter tools these days, but instead of including 3 or 4, you have to wade through 50 or 60. Most in a list fashion with no real indicator of the usefulness of the tool.

You would have more chance getting links to the post if you demonstrated your use and knowledge of these tools, perhaps giving a score out of ten.

I realise when a new tool hits town ( although some of us have been using it for over a year ) it’s common for a bunch of duplicate posts to come to the fore. But it’s getting a little ridiculous.

And don’t get me started about all these Twitter “experts” who seem to have cropped up like mildew on a cold wet wall.

All I say to that is, “don’t ask a fat man for dieting tips”.

And if you have just joined Twitter, don’t call yourself a Social Media Expert”. You are more likely to be seen as a twat, than a twit.

  1. I’m not an expert, I just do what I do.

    But I know what you mean. Of course there are ways to tell if someone knows their stuff other than taking their word for it.

  2. What’s funny is that it’s blindingly obvious that some of these self-proclaimed “experts” have not used twitter at all. It’s out there in plain sight (vs. SEO where they could at least shroud themselves in some mystery).

    It’s easy to tell a twitter newbie. Just look at their profile.

  3. My line to “Social Media Experts” is if you really were, you would know what a joke that is.

  4. Here here. I’m a fairly new user of Twitter and see a lot of this already. As something that develops so quickly, is it possible to be an ‘expert’?
