Third-party Twitter tools can enhance your Twitter experience.

Last week, I started a new series of blog posts about Twitter tools. To help you organize them, I’ve arranged them according to my list of basic Twitter activities, which includes:

  • Communication tools, broken into talking, listening, and content
  • Community management tools, broken into follower and following management
  • Reputation management tools
  • Ego building
  • Outside of the box uses for Twitter
  • Timeline filters

Twitter Timeline Filters

#Hashtags compiles information about individual hashtags (keywords preceded by a #) throughout the Twitter timeline and provides use analysis.

Filttr keeps track of tweets you like and don’t like and learns how to filter out tweets you don’t want to read.
