    Quite an exhaustive list!

    Have you tried Tweetree for viewing tweets with links embedded and replies in context?

  2. 2

    Great roundup. Looks like I have some playing to do because I haven’t heard of several of these.

    Why does every article about Twitter have to start with something like “If you haven’t heard of Twitter by now, you must be living under a rock!”? So cliche. :-P @mccambridge

  4. 4

    isn’t too much twitter?

  5. 5

    OMG! This is one loooooooooooong list, great man, I can’t imagine if there’s any future post for Developer’s Toolbox for Twitter XD Time to bookmark this post again… hehe

  6. 6

    @Sean McCambridge I agree, not the better way to start the article. Though, I’d like to show that phrase to my French friends that ignore the exitence of twitter and worst, find it useless comparing with facebook! Hope twitter will know the success it deserves here and one day one would say “si vous n’avez jamais entendu parlé de twitter, c’est vraiment que vous ne sortez jamais de chez vous”!

  11. 11

    Wow, great thanks!

  12. 12

    99, 50, 75, … so many long lists. Yes, it’s useful to get in one place all those links. But, isn’t it too much ? There’s a point where a list is relevant and a point where it is just another list among a bunch of long lists. At least, put a table of contents at the top of the article. Great effort in all cases.

  13. 13

    Great List. Thx.

    Thanks for the list which covers most applications I appreciate. I strongly suggest you also check out http://MicroPlaza.com and its Tribal Search which has just been released under private beta and which provides a mix of Digg, Delicious and RSS that allows you to browse, search and monitor relevant news tweeted by the people or groups of people you follow… and lot’s more.

    An example is this search for the most popular and freshest articles from the Smashing Magazine website: http://microplaza.com/search?q=url%3Awww.smashingmagazine.com

    Well maybe we live under a rock here in Denmark, but I reckon that I’m the only one I know who’s using Twitter – and I’m studying computer science at the university.

  16. 16

    Yeah for twitter. Now I can read nonsense from people I don’t know. Myspace and Facebook commments took just too long to read. Anyone else hear of grunter?

  17. 17

    I just dont get twitter, or maybe I’m just not so self-absorbed to think that anyone would want to hear my every annoying thought on anything… or that I’m that too important that I must share all my thoughts with everyone.

    I have facebook, last.fm, blip.fm… ect, and I like to keep up with my friends… but my god do I need to know you just took a dump at 4:24am last night, and now your trying to get back to sleep??

    Maybe I’m to introverted for social networking. or too extroverted to waste my time behind a computer?

  18. 18

    I just don’t get what in the world is so great about twitter that every third article here on smashingmag has to feature the great 1000 brand new twitter uber-cool-extensions that makes telling everyone at what time you take a shit even faster and easier…

  19. 19

    How can SEO and a search engine marketing campaign improve Leadsmarketer website (www.leadsmarketer.com) position in the search engines? Our marketing and sales department invested a lot of resources in writing all the content for our web site but we just can’t seem to be ranking high enough in the engines, while our competition is on top. Do we have to re-write it all over again?

  20. 20

    If there are 99 ESSENTIAL Twitter tools then tweeting just got way too complicated for me.

  21. 21

    Twitter is completely useless, I really dont understand the enthousiasm around this thing… But I also dont understand the frequency of articles about it.

  22. 22

    Not even a mention of Twictur.es?

  23. 23

    Twitter Tools?
    You’re missing the main one, YOU.
    You can use every single one of these tools, but without YOU tweeting interesting things, what’s the point?

    And to the person/people who think twitter is useless.
    I’ve got work through twitter, and all i had to do was be myself.
    It’s a fantastic community full of interesting people.
    I understand why people may not want to use it, but to call it useless is going a bit far.
    It has a use, just maybe not for you.

    twitter is not about having 200 pseudo-friends and telling them every little detail about your life! It permits keeping the link with close people without all the “blablabla they-write-so-much and the I’m-buying-you stuff ” of facebook. I find a good website on the net? I send the adress on twitter, I planning a travel to Paris? Telling my friends when i’m coming! FAST, SIMPLE. And it seems to be a very usefull marketing tool also.

  25. 25

    hootsuite is pretty awesome! It allows to connect and update to one or more twitter accounts at the same time.

  26. 26

    You forgot twitter grouping made possible by Tweetizen (http://www.tweetizen.com)

    What about Tweetmeme and the Tweetmeme button/wordpress plugin?

  29. 29

    Enough already!

    I Love article like this!

    an other post for twitter people:

    Precious Twitter Checklist – How Twitter works for you!

    Usefuls tips and tools to help you improve the performance of your Twitter profile, for business but also for personal use.

  31. 31

    Great list. There is actually a new useful tool just released last week called twendz. It helps get through the clutter.


    twendz is a Twitter mining Web application that utilizes the power of Twitter Search, highlighting conversation themes and sentiment of the tweets that talk about topics you are interested in. As the conversation changes, so does twendz by evaluating up to 70 tweets at a time. When new tweets are posted, they are dynamically updated, minute by minute.

  32. 32

    Did I miss seeing twibble here. Good for mobile phone.

  33. 33

    You forgot lasttweet.com – Last.fm and Twitter’s offspring :-)

  34. 34

    Also check out http://urlcatch.com – URL shortener that gives you the ability to post to Twitter from IM (a basic Twitter IM account). Pretty neat!

    Sorry about my rather spammy previous comment. Seems this site’s HTML parser mangles things a lot. Those links were supposed to be named “Tweetmeme”, “Tweetmeme button” and “Tweetmeme WordPress widget” respectively.

  36. 36

    Sounds like great post for Twitter junkies.

  37. 37

    i found it’s too much twitter stuff, you’re posting. Twitter is booooring

  38. 38

    I hate twitter… I guess I missed the boat. I’ll stick with facebook and linked-in.

  39. 39

    I’d mention Tweetizen in here too. More robust and useful app than a lot of those mentioned here.

    Wow, this is quite the list! I admit to using Twellow, TwitterGrader, Twitpic, and Qwitter – but Remember the Milk sounds fabulous – I’m definitely going to check it out. I’ve made amazing contacts on Twitter and find myself checking several times a day from my webtop – so an tool helps.

  41. 41

    What about CMYKTweet?
    It’s a nice mashup to tweet in CMYK! :)

    Geek and Hype

  42. 42

    I’d just like to mention a couple, firstly WeFollow.com http://wefollow.com (a simple directory by Kevin Rose/Digg founder) and *shameless plug* TwitStamp.com http://twitstamp.com which generates an auto-updating image from your tweets, to use as a widget on your site, email signature, etc.

  43. 43

    Stop this right now. 99 *essential* tools? This bullshit must stop.

  44. 44

    Another nice WordPress Twitter plugin is TweetSuite. Auto adds tweets that reference your post.

  45. 45

    Don’t forget about BubbleTweet as well.

    Let’s you place a video message ON your Twitter page…no link off’s.

    Awesome list and thank you so much for including justtweetit.com! :)

  49. 49

    I suggest this site, http://www.twtmap.com, for ppl create a map url and tweet it.

  50. 50

    This is one of the most appalling headlines I’ve ever seen for one of these fluffy link-baiting articles. I pray that the author simply doesn’t know what the word “essential” means. How could any reasonable person ever need ninety-nine Twitter “tools”? What would life be like using ninety-nine of these “tools” in various combinations?

    It is admirable of Smashing Magazine to try to document the best of the recent glut of Twitter peripherals, but it is undignified, misleading, and inane to bill this list with the claim of being “essential.”

  51. 51

    Hello everyone, it’s Bigdoggpinc. If it is useful you know I am close by trying to get the word out about it! I learned about most of these from M…. and I was glad they are Twitter users as well. Even found my Pastor of my church is on Twitter. These tools helps you stay really connected, with power networking at its best. My network is stronger thanks to these tools. – TRY IT!

  52. 52

    If you’re havin’ twitter needs i feel bad for you son
    i got 99 applications but a twitch ain’t one
    hit me

    Thanx for the list. Just added the TwitterBar for Firefox.

  56. 56

    Twitter is not more then electronic dysentery. A hype with no content. Hate me for that but thats my opinion.

  57. 57

    I would suggest http://www.mobypicture.com, because it’s a fast, versatile and reliable way to post pictures to twitter, and work better and more reliable than twitpic. it supports video too!

  58. 58

    Pwitter is a pretty cool twitter app for macs, much more light weight than tweetdeck.

  59. 59

    Thanks for this article! I used loads of you’re links to fil up Twlinks.org . Twlinks is a Twitter link page where you can share interesting Twitter links and share them with others! Check it out:

    Don’t forget the Ultimate Twitter (humor) Service!



  62. 62

    You may not have known about http://www.HashDictionary.com it’s the dictionary for hashtags (helps you connect with conversations you don’t get!). It’s totally editable by all users – for instance AdTech conferences have used it to determine their official hashtags.

  63. 63

    There are also http://hellotxt.com that allow you to manage one or more twitter account and other microblogging tools.

  64. 64

    Thought I’d mention TrackDailyGoals.com which tracks the #dailygoal hashtag and analyses your goals set for certain days.

  65. 65

    some sites like you still trying to pump twitter. just give up twitter is NOT the next big thing. and please do not abuse words like “essential”. 99 essential tool just for twitter. L O L

  66. 66

    I would like to add my new Twitter search service to the mix:


    It is a real-time Twitter search tool that has been designed to help users surface useful information from the ‘Twittershere’. It features a couple of features such as allowing users to ‘play’ and ‘pause’ search result streams – making it ideal for following breaking news, live blogging / tweeting and keynotes etc.

    I hope some of you find it of use…

  67. 67

    Also, you should take a look at http://www.tweetpoint.me, pretty cool web app developed to let the users rate other users on the things they are tweeting about. Check it out!

  68. 68

    Thanks for sharing that wealth I’ll let the readers at http://www.isteconnects.org/ no about your article. Thanks Again!

  69. 69

    The article is extensive and good. But I also agree with many that it is way too long and the title is misleading. No way there can be 99 essential applications. Essential means you cannot do without it, and none in the list are essential in that way, they’re all optional enrichments of Twitter.

    I don’t know about the rest, but I visit sites like Smashing too save time, they do the excellent work in compiling these great lists. Lately, however, the lists are becoming so long that they do the opposite: they only costs me MORE time. I’m know at a point where if I see a list like this, I usually skip it all together. Who has the time to read about 99 Twitter applications? Just give me a top 5 or 10.

    This has nothing to do with the quality of the content or the extensive effort that went into that. It’s just that the purpose of finding only the best content is defeated this way.

  70. 70

    dont forget twitterhawk.com, great for generating leads on twitter.

    There’s a great brand new AIR app called Twitt’m, check it out! Twitt’m

  87. 87

    Twitter is just “exciting” I guess because its so damn easy. In fact its so easy thats why its a little difficult to “get it”.

    The list above is just a fine example of the mad amount of tools out there but not one of them is ever “essential”. They are only essential if you need them and if you need them they they are worth it!

    I hope the momentum keeps going, I love to see these new apps appearing and the crazy ideas people have and the things they can produce. Just look at twitter as the new form of text on phones that’s free and soon to replace mobile texting…and maybe even google search…but that’s a different story isnt it.

  88. 88

    Thank a super-List!

  89. 89

    It’s understandable if one doesn’t want to use Twitter, but it’s a little sad that anyone in the design industry wouldn’t understand the value. Create an account and follow a few industry leaders like Cameron Moll, Daniel Benjamin, or Eric Meyer and you’ll see why: the stream of information you receive is clean, useful, and personal. That’s what separates it from your buddy’s MySpace page: intent and execution.

    Also, I think it’s good to highlight one of the most useful and sought after uses of Twitter Karma — bulk follow/unfollow. You can view everyone who follows you and whom you follow, check any number of them, and with one click, follow or unfollow all of the people you’ve checked.

    On the subject of this being too long of a list: IMO, maybe it is for one sitting. However, keep in mind that many of these apps are extremely useful, and there is some overlap. One person may prefer Twutter to TweetLater, and so giving one the options available to them is beneficial.

    You might want to check out Twitdom also. It is a Twitter Applications Database with nearly 600 Twitter Applications listed.

  92. 92

    Its really big list

  93. 93

    Thank you so much!!! Very helpful. I never realized Twitter had such a vast amount of apps o.O Twitter is taking over the internet.

    #100 – HootSuite

  95. 95

    You forgot another good one for knowing who’s following you, StillFollowingMe.com. You enter a specific username and see if they are still following your account. Really easy to use. Doesn’t require you to give up your passwords. Otherwise! Great list!

  96. 96
  97. 97

    Well i for one got slightly unerved and interested all at the same time with this list.. Tweetdomion….

  98. 98

    You forgot my favorite Twitter ap. twAitter. as in wait to twitter.

    I use it for all my scheduling of tweets, but its also a full twitter client.

    Definately should be in your top 100. Lets call it #100.

    Great List Though!

  99. 99

    If you think all this is good then wait till you see the NextWave 3 of Showcaze (www.showcaze.co.uk).

    Showcaze is currently achieving a higher revenue per subscriber than Twitter, Facebook and many of the Freebie sites.

    What matters most in the real world is that you have CUSTOMERS willing to PAY for your services, because they find the service useful, not just novel. Anyone can flog a Freebie.

  100. 100

    Thanks a lot. didn’t realize there was soo many I didn’t use!


  101. 101

    I can’t believe Tweetie was missed. It totally made me doubt the entire list. Tweetie for iPhone and now for Mac is by far the best Twitter app…

  102. 102

    Wow, this is an amazing list! I’ve seen and used a bunch of these but it’s going to take time to get through all of them… a bit overwhelming. Thanks!

    Here’s another Twitter tool not mentioned: Peekr.

    If you’re like me and you like to see interesting background images when someone has a custom Twitter profile, you can easily see the full Twitter background image using the peekr “twidget” to take a quick peek at their full background image.

    It’s a free bookmarklet (a.k.a. favelet) available at http://www.peekr.net.

  103. 103

    Great list. I wanted to make sure everyone was aware of the ongoing poll going on in the Twitterverse to vote on the current Best Twitter client. Check it out here:


    and vote for your favorite. If you pass it on to others, please use the #topclient hashtag.

    TweetLister is a free service that allows real estate brokers and owners to take full advantage of the vast, wide-reaching social network on Twitter. With TweetLister, you can easily create, post, manage and schedule all of your Twitter listings. A must have for anyone renting or selling a property.

    It’s also a great search tool for those looking to buy or rent a home or office. The TweetLister search engine can be found here.

    If you dont want to hand over your twitter usernames and passwords to a third party website but want to implement a “keyword” autofollow
    if you are running multiple accounts and need more than 100 api hits an hour (if you get your ip address whitelisted you can get 20,000 api calls an hour).

    Then check out http://www.MyTwitterButler.com for $10 it’s a windows .net application that run directly on your pc instead of in the cloud.

    It does two things;

    1/ Auto Follows Users with up to 4 search terms per twitter account (allows multiple accoutns – I run mine with 11 accounts simultaneously but it slows it down).

    2/ Direct Message Broadcast – you can send a direct message to all you users with just one click.

    I noticed a few friend management tools in the list, my most frequently used one is probably tweeptracker.com simple and straightforward but saves me a lot of time. Allows me to see who i follow but doesnt follow back, then unfriend or block as I like. As well as adding those that follow me but I don’t follow.


  112. 112

    All I can say is THANK YOU! I have been on a hunt looking for all these applications and I am glad you have them all listed here. You left out one more that I thought was really really great because its showing people how they can get paid on Twitter.

    Stephen Pierce just posted his Definitive Twitter Resource Guide on his blog. It has 201 Twitter Tools and Twitter Apps. It’s a free pdf download on his blog. I think its a very good tool. http://www.dtalpha.com/talkback/?p=355

    I’m starting a new Twitter app that will work like Tweetdeck but also allow you to do a whole lot more. Lots more columns will be allowed and up to five accounts on at the same time. I haven’t gotten it completely done yet and need some testers to try it out and tell me whether they like it. Just email me and I’ll give you an invitation to check it out.

  116. 116

    it is very informative. it will definitely help in my twitter..

    Translate your tweet into your choice of over 40 languages and post automatically and intermediately.

    You can also view previous translated tweets to help you learn new words and keep track of your conversations.

    We just released a reverse phone search application for Twitter. It leverages the power of Twitter and WhitePages.com to allow users to look up an unknown phone number inside of Twitter! In addition, it cross-references 2Gator.com to see if a phone number has had a complaint filed against it previously.


  119. 119


    Just launched a very original and funny application called TwitterLoo, hope its good enough to make your list :)

    We would like to notify you about Twittospheric, a website we just opened.

    Twittospheric let you see in real-time all tweets about any topic like if you were in the twittosphere!
    It’s a fun & cool way also to explain to your friends what is Twitter ;) with an original visualisation of the new tweets, there, up in the higher skies!


  123. 123

    A great new twitter friend adder (and cheap) at http://twitterontherun.com
    Great for adding friends on twitter. Runs in the background slowly finding people and getting rid of people that don’t follow you back. You can target who you want to follow. Great twitter tool.

  124. 124

    Just found which allows you to track and interact with celebrities on twitter, its seems pretty cool and kinda addicting

  125. 125

    A great list. I’m not sure our app is “essential”, but it’s a lot of fun – it’s free Twitter printer that makes printer friendly output from your Twitter tweets. You can include Twitpic.com images and user avatars. Try it and see, it’s http://twitprint.com

  126. 126

    I think it is also worth mentioning Twitroduce which has been described as a formalizing #FollowFriday.

    Also, for branded URL shortening, 9MP.

  128. 128

    I didn’t see AUTOPILOT TWEET ( http://www.autopilottweet.com ) listed which is a great program. It is helpful for getting followers on Twitter and has a cool feature which can follow by keywords. Very useful Twitter app!

  129. 129

    I think that link was bad in the previous comment. Here is the correct website for Autopilot Tweet:

    Hi Paul,

    Will you please add utwitbook to the Search Twitter Apps, it’s new twitter-er search engine, and it supports many advanced search features, e.g. seach in fields, search by design colors, search in friends of some twitter-er, search by follower count range…, and it’s pretty fast.


  133. 133

    Try this tool if you want kick ass Twitter backgrounds that will make your links clickable. http://bit.ly/RhSZ7

  134. 134

    Still a very timely post. Hope it’s not too late to add our contribution: http://www.twitcharts.com/ which let’s you share Google graph charts on your Twitter stream.

  135. 135

    URLMINIFIER.COM .. other tool…

  136. 136

    You should mention http://twittme.mobi – very cool mobile twitter site

  137. 137

    Another app worth mentioning is – http://TweetMiner.net – brings together an RSS reader and Twitter into one nice simple, clean interface. It allows the user to instantly post from the feeds to Twitter. It also allows the user to schedule the Tweet for a later time.

  138. 138

    You should also check out AUTOPILOT TWEET – http://www.autopilottweet.com – great app for getting followers at Twitter and scheduling tweets, automating boring Twitter tasks :)

  139. 139

    Great list !!!! A lot of valuables applications.

    Hey Guys,

    Thanks for the great list – some useful apps here I hadn’t heard of. I also use one you don’t have on your list called Timed Tweeter, it’s for scheduling tweets in the future. Works pretty good with my lists of quotes that I like to send out to my followers


  144. 144

    Awesome list here, just having a browse through great stuff.

    Must have taken an absolute age to come up with this!

    I have one more to add it’s relatively new and we are looking for entries to http://www.twitterskins.co.uk a Twitter Directory find someone new today!

  145. 145

    Looks like you guys have overlooked at the new bird on the wire. http://www.twittsplorer.com

    I have it, love it and will keep it as long as it is free.
    Cheers to all


  146. 146

    This is a great list but I thought it would be better if you offered more of a description for each. Maybe a follow up article is needed, i.e. “Twitter Tools and Where They Are Today” for example. Also TweetLater http://www.tweetlaterpro.com is now known as Social Oomph.

    We’ve created http://www.TwitBallot.com , a new twitter polling app.

    Twitballot is a Twitter based web app that allows you to instantaneously create ballots from within a tweet, without leaving Twitter or signing up to any service. To launch a ballot, tweeters simply add #twitballot somewhere in their question and define the possible answer options using a #tag before each option. Respondents then reply to the question by tweeting back one of the #options from the question. Our ballot engine automatically aggregates all this information and sends the ballot creator a link to real-time responses to the ballot, displayed using graphs, basic stats and each respondent’s tweet.

    dumtwit.com is kind of the anti-twitter; twitter for the tongue-tied. No typing necessary, just click on an image and see what it comes up with for a tweet. All image based, using feeds from flickr.

    Try http://www.dumtwit.com. It uses flickr tags to load images that are clickable tweets.
