2011 was really a “Tweetastic” year! And these awesome twitter tools were behind it all….

Yep, it’s that time of year when we all reflect on days gone
by, this is the 1st post in my end of the 2011 review. This
particular post is about the things that made 2011 a “Tweetastic” year! 
This year I was introduced to some awesome twitter apps and
engagement strategies that I would like to share with you. Yep that’s right I
said strategies!! Because there really is more to twitter than just a newsfeed
of the next Middle Eastern revolution or the outrageous family announcements by
the Kardashian’s! So let’s have a look shall we…
First up lets discuss some of the twitter apps that I found
and how best to use them!

Pay with a tweet

I like Pay with a Tweet, it allows
you to give free content to people in exchange for them tweeting that they are
reading/using your content! 

I would use Pay with a Tweet if I was new to the industry and wanted to share my new e-book. Because even though I know it has value my potential customer might not want to part with cash to read it but for just a tweet??? Now we’re talking!   

Let’s you collect tweets, yours and others on various topics, that most often than not have links to some great articles  Another great way to build your brand using content created by others and stay abreast of
all the industry topics that are important to you. 

A great way to tell your story using content provided by
others…take a look at how we used it to tell how the U.S. is falling in love
with the “The
Mis-Adventures of Awkward Black Girl”
!
Recently I have had some issues with Tweetdeck, that have left me red-faced and looking for a back-up
solution and then I found Tweetvisor!
I love this web-based tweet scheduler!! At a glance I can see my DM’s,
@SocialMMMDiva’s and networks posts. I can also pop things in and walk away
with the peace of mind that it really is going to post!! Now if only they did
Facebook and Google+ too….. 
 I like Twilert it’s much like setting a
google alert for things you want to be in the loop on only on twitter! So say
you can set one for your twitter handle so you can see if anyone is tweeting
about you or your brand. Or for keywords that you might want to respond to,
like the word #Klout you will get a feed of all the tweets about #Klout. Now
this will come in handy if you are writing a blog about #Klout and need
inspiration.  
Now this tool is a great way to index your tweets. A one
stop shop (mini-webpage) for people to see what you tweet about and determine
if they want to follow you on twitter! Click the link and head on over to my
branded index of tweets.
 So tell me which of these Twitter tools do you use and why?
If you didn’t use any of them which will you play around with in 2012? And
lastly what Twitter tools made 2011 Tweetastic for you?
