    Hello Kumar sir,
    This was definitely a resource for those who want to have great conversions via twitter. I use twitter abd its really awesome and quick way to get noticed. Needless to say all our ace bloggers are active on twitter and even businesses too.
    I use some of the tools you mentioned here like hootsuite, buffer, and social bro (it is not mentioned though).
    I love the strategies you mentioned and they really do work. Hshtags help me get over 30 retweets for a mere 4200 followers and that is not bad.
    thanks for coming up with this resource. 🙂

    Hi Kumar

    Very comprehensive post on benefits of Twitter and tips and tools to use it more effectively.

    Things are going other way round in media world nowadays. Earlier a news was first broken into news channels and then people used to Tweet it at Twitter for wider coverage but now a news breaks at Twitter first and then news media lift it for its wider coverage. It is sufficient to tell the growing popularity of this wonderful social media.

    Top two tools which you mentioned in the list I have already been using and getting amazing results. Will try a few more to fully optimize my Twitter activities.

    Thanks a lot for sharing this useful post.

      That is a very accurate assessment Mi! News breaks on Twitter first and then goes to media outlets. That is why Twitter is so powerful and those who are capitalizing on its capabilities, are winning big time!

      Thank you for dropping by and adding value through your thoughts about the post and value of Twitter!

    Hi Kumar,

    Indeed, social media made human reduced to interact face to face, but if used properly, it can be a great tool that will be useful for us, our business and our lives.

    Thank you for contributing to my learning curve, Kumar.
    Great article, indeed!

    Hi Kumar,

    Well this post surely came at the right time for me. I was away form Twitter last year, building products. I couldn’t keep up with all the social media platforms. But I knew in my soul that I needed to get back and I did in January.

    I do have an assistant now who handles my Twitter account. She shares, retweets and has a good conversation in my own voice. But when someone asks me a specific question she notifies me immediately so I can answer myself.

    I’m doing that 90/10 rule of course, like I do everywhere. And those little quotes and cute pictures are being shared. In one month’s time, I’ve seen so much growth.

    We are using tweetdeck at the moment, because we are just starting. I’m sending this link to my assistant because she can learn so much more about it. She is a Twitter specialist and also a freelance email marketer. Not that we are using her for our emails yet…but soon she will help us with our analytics.

    OK I’m very excited you wrote this one because I’m looking at the marketing aspect on Twitter also. Lots to learn 🙂

      Hi Donna,

      Having somebody help you with the social media channels for you so you fan focus on your business is a great idea. In fact, that is why I started my social media marketing team and we have been assisting some of our clients in the US and in other international markets with their social media needs.

      What triggered me to share these tools and techniques here was that one of our web development clients wasn’t comfortable handing over their social media content creation aspects in our hands and instead, they wanted us to train their in-house staff so they could manage their stuff by themselves since they are into a very niche market that requires specialized way of creating even social media updates.

      Well, while doing that training for them, I realized that there are a lot of business owners who don’t want to spend money to get someone else to do it for them. Instead, they want to do it themselves and they fail miserably because they get confused for lack of strategy and sometimes, for not knowing right tools for right things.

      I hope this post all such people.

      I am glad to know you have hired someone to manage Twitter for you. I am sure she will do a great job. If you ever have any questions, please feel free to let me know .

  6. Twitter:
    Hi Kumar,

    Wow, I haven’t been here in a while, but it’s so nice to be back.

    Well, I’ve got much better and most of all, I like Twitter much more now than I used to in the past.

    The trick for me was very simple. Linking Twitter to an email that I check on a constant basis, so I don’t miss a thing and I’m on it as soon as I check my email. Before I had Twitter linked to some email address that I never or rarely checked and that wasn’t a good idea, because nothing reminded me of Twitter.

    That email change did it for me!

    Thank you for mentioning all these Twitter tools. Some I didn’t know about 🙂

    Have a wonderful day!

      Hi Sylviane,

      Glad to see you here and yes, glad to see you churning out some great content every single week, multiple times per week. Looks like 2015 has enthused you with new energy and new vision! I am so happy for you!

      Yes, out of focus is out of mind and it is muck likely to happen if your Twitter account is linked to an email address which you don’t often check. You did a good thing by linking it with your current email address. It helps!

      Glad to know you found some tools interesting. I hope these help you take better control and help you create better Twitter management 🙂

    Hi Kumar,

    Happy New Year!

    Twitter is one social network it almost took forever for me to understand. Yet, despite its understanding today, it still isn’t my preferred medium (maybe because my audience hangs out on Facebook more).

    I’ll take your suggestions here to memory and I’m positive (as usual), that I will see a change – and growth.

    I’ll be sharing via Twitter in a moment.

    Do make the day great!

      Hi Akaahan,

      Good to hear from you! And yes, Happy New Year my friend!

      Twitter can be a little confusing and it was a mystery for me as well for sometime. However, I was one of those early adapters who never gave up and finally got it 🙂

      So, yes, if you haven’t got a handle on it so far, don’t worry. Keep on keeping on and you will see the tremendous power of this awesome channel for business and influence!

  8. Hi Kumar,
    Your have very informative and visually refreshing blog, I just love to visit your blog and read your blog posts….

  9. Twitter is one of those tricky channels to acquire users from. It’s very dependent on the nature of the business you are promoting, at least from my experience.

    Anyway, I liked your list of tools. I’ve used most of those in one way or another. TweetAdder was like a blessing to me back then. Today, I cant live without buffer.

    Keep the great content coming!

  13. Twitter:
    Still a learning experience for me…
    Sometimes get overwhelmed at the quantity of posts by robots or
    some type of “I’m not here but this is Great! go buy it or go read it” or

    Rather like like watching very late night TV….one infomercial after another.
    Love it when i reply to someone and strike up a conversation, or else I post
    and someone comes back at me.
    No robots talking now.
    No I don’t have thousands of followers..probably because I don’t follow so
    many people. But I do have followers with tremendous numbers of hanger ons.

    Because I have opinions and express them…do get people who leave, but that
    is ok. Usually get more who agree to follow and replace them.
    If someone turns out to be a robot, I leave to.
    That is the fun.
    Connect and respond in real time or I’m not interested!
    And despite all the advice and guff…these last few weeks the
    weather topped the list.
    The only tool that I use is to connect an email address and my auto responder (accident…didn’t realize that it posts my emails to Twitter and Facebook).
    Probably should take the time to invest some of in taking a closer look at some
    of the things listed above.
    Like your comment that you spent a lot of time on Twitter before you figured it out.
    Hmm. Maybe should re read and save some precious time.

  14. Hello,

    Mindblowing tips and twitter tools, to be honest I wasn’t aware of these tools. The fact is I’m not at all active at twitter as I’m on facebook and pinterest. However I use twitter rarely. Recently got encouraged by one of my friend and I guess this might be the reason to land here.

    Thanks for sharing.

    Very good list here. I am using several of them. Although TweetAdder has been a lot less effective in the last couple of years. I also like Tweepi and Justunfollow.

  16. Thanks for another post with great resources all in one spot. Twitter is one channel I have a hard time figuring out how to use professionally – or at least balancing building an audience without being too “out-there” or unprofessional. Good suggestions on how to do so.
