10 Twitter Tools for Entrepreneurs

Posted by in Entrepreneurs, social media, Twitter

I want to share 10 Twitter tools for entrepreneurs that I have been using, some of the best tools for analytics, management, sharing and finding new followers.

It has been years since I shared tools, services that you should use with Twitter, so I decided it was time to do some sharing since there are more and more great tools out there that you may or may not of heard of.

Plus with all the changes happening with Twitter, it’s a good time to search out some new tools that can help you better manage your time on Twitter.

Now before we go to far let’s deal with the elephant in the middle of my blog post :)

If you remember last year I mention in a social media tools post that:

“you shouldn’t get bogged down with trying new tools all the time, find what works and use that”

The reality is, that IS TRUE…you shouldn’t be trying every new tool that comes your way.

BUT, that doesn’t mean you should ignore everything either.

I would recommend trying out new tools every 6 months or so, since Twitter and all SM platforms are changing fast, you will want to try out some new Twitter tools that may deal with those changes better then anything else you have been using.

So be open to testing once in awhile, but don’t get bogged down with trying every new shinny tool that gets released.


Now on to the 10 new tools I am sharing today, some are newer, and some not so new, but you may not have heard of them yet.

For me, the best tools so far are:


If you have limited time to test out new tools, then I would start with those 4, now if you have some extra time, I’d say definitely try them all.

SocialRank is a easy way to identify, organize, and manage your followers on Twitter. I like that they look “beyond” just the numbers of followers a particular ‘best follower’ might have, but instead takes into consideration much deeper analysis of a single account.

GroupTweet makes it easy to communicate with a  group of people on Twitter privately. GroupTweet keeps your account secure by allowing multiple users to Tweet from your Twitter account without sharing the Twitter password.

Long list right?

You really don’t need to use all these Twitter tools since some cover a lot of the same stuff, but I wanted to give you some choices, since we all like different things, different ways.

No matter which you end up using, they are all great tools, helpful tools and should help you boost your game on Twitter.

    HI John , I have recently read your view “top 17 pro blogger ” somewhere after that read I’m landing to your blog .I signed up twitter 4 year ago and facing same problem like people who are not following back i some time looks for tools so that i can know who unfollowed me but here i got same tool

    Don’t worry who unfollows you,, focus on finding targeted people to follow again and again.

    People look at 4 things before they follow.

    are you targeted?
    do you have an image and profile
    do you share targeted helpful content
    are you active

    if you say no to any of that.. FIX it before you follow people again.
