    Found this post ironically through one of the services that you are talking about – Tweetmeme.

    I found a couple new things that I will have to try out. Like Trendistic. My question would be if I could Rss the trending topics into a interface that also puts Google trends into it. Great post all together.

    It is a nice list, but a couple of great services are missing: like http://twittercounter.com: they have a widget that shows your twitter visitors on your site. Or http://hootsuite.com a world class business client.

    One of the most comprehensive Twitter search engines out there is (displays both popular and real time results) but arguably the best part about chirrps is their profiles section. It eats the other directory’s lunch.

    I use twitpic and hootsuite both are very good, but I must admit I need to work on being more consistent with how many times I tweet.

    Thanks for the list

    I am curious to find out what blog system you have been utilizing? I’m experiencing some minor security problems with my latest blog and I’d like to find something more risk-free. Do you have any solutions?

    I haven’t heard much about TwitterDMer, but found a few people saying it was a scam and not to do it. Has anyone used it that can testify that it works?

    Thanks. Great article!

      All mass DM’s are pretty much scams imho, so I wouldn’t doubt a “service” that provides it like TwitterDMer is too. The LAST thing I want in my twitter mssgs is a bunch of spam. Knowing my name when I don’t know you does NOT impress me, no matter how “personalized” the mssg may be.

    I found friend or follow just let me know who I am following but not follow back and so on. It’s actually not very useful. Try Twitter Karma. The site allows me to see who I am following but not follow back and unfollow them. That helps a lot.

    Another one which could be useful to quickly scan the hundreds of links shared by your followed people : paper.li (turns Twitter into a “daily newspaper”). Good post Daniels ! Ed
