Twitter is a free social networking and micro-blogging service that allows its users to send and read other users updates which are text-based posts of up to 140 characters in length.

Updates are displayed on the user's profile page and delivered to other users who have signed up to receive them. Actually, there is more tools of this but i decided to make this post short and clean. Instead of listing down the Top 100 Twitter Tools i have decided to list down only the Top 10 Twitter Tools accordance to my own favorite one

1) TwitterFox is a Firefox extension that notifies you of your friends' status on Twitter and lets you make posts from your browser status bar.

2) Retweet This is an application designed for use with the Greasemonkey Firefox plug-in. It allows you to append a retweet button to the end of each Twitter entry to encourage your followers to retweet your posts.

3) Classify Twitter Users is a script that allows you to classify Twitter users and decide whether they are worth following based on their friends, followers and post ratios.

You can set the script to use your Twitter user scales (e.g. spammer, social climber, social rock star) or just gather more information about people you are following.

4) TwittAd allows Twitter users to monetize their account by accepting advertising on the background image of their Twitter user profile.

5) TwitterCounter
lets you add a daily updating TwitterCounter to your blog so everybody can see how popular you are by the number of persons following you.

6) TweetBeep is just like having Google Alerts for Twitter. It enables you to keep track of conversations that mention you, your products or your company via email. You can even keep track of who's tweeting your website or blog. It's a great tool for online reputation management and you don't even have to be a Twitter user to benefit from it.

7) Twitter Grader measures the reach and authority of a Twitter user, calculated by the pace of their updates, the completeness of their profile, their number of followers and the network power of those followers.

Twitter Grader displays as a score out of 100 and is consistently updating and adapting as your Twitter account grows. Based on those grades, Twitter Grader lists the Twitter Elite globally and in each country, just like Technorati does for bloggers.

8) TwitPic, as the name suggests, is a photo sharing tool for Twitter. When logged in, it allows you to upload photos and post them with comments as a Tweet. It works with a range of Twitter clients such as Twitterific, Twhirl and MobileTwitter and stores all your photos in a single location with updated viewing stats.

9) Twuffer is a Twitter buffer. It allows Twitter users to compose a líst of future tweets, and schedule their release. Twuffer is ideal for making hourly, daily or monthly announcements or send post-dated birthday greetings or reminders to people about upcoming events.

10) Twistori I have a real soft spot for this one. One of the developers is Amy Hoy, one of my favorite speakers from Webstock 2008 and a goth geek to boot. Twistori is a social experiment that taps into the Twitter conversations revolving around life's central activities: Love, Hate, Think, Believe, Feel, Wish.

I love Twitter for the interaction. It naturally leads to knowledge gained and it becomes an investment into future insight. There is a tremendous small biz community, video bloggers, and huge number of journalists.

Really interesting read. I too have just signed up to Twitter, mainly after my other half talking about it constantly, and to be honest I was wondering why on earth I'd bothered. Although I still only have a few followers, the more I use it and read about it, the more I think this could become an invaluable resource!

Twitter is surely and essential tool for marketing and no doubt it can be very effectively used for business marketing. I have been using twitter for having a great assistance for marketing and capturing a huge internet viral market. The reason for using twitter is only that it has a big viral market but it also has big impact and influence. Additionally, the tweets come up in the search engines so fast and that worth a lot. I love using twitter and the tools available for twitter. These tools make it more esier to market.
