What are the best twitter tools to increase your twitter presence?
I know there are a lot of social media tools out there. Which tools are the best for increasing your twitter presence, ideally ones that are easy to use?
For Twitter, I previously used HootSuite for quite a few years, but it was just lacking something. Over time, I started to look for new solutions, and ultimately I landed on two:
1. Tweet Deck
I love both of these tools. Tweet Deck, if you are unfamiliar, is Twitter's free scheduling tool. You can schedule your posts, check your notifications, engage with others' Tweets, monitor and reply to your messages and more. It's a really great tool.
Commun.it is paid, but there is a great deal going on if you visit their site right now. You add features like a to do list to keep you focused on channel growth, a list of trending topics where you can source posts and schedule retweets for later, the ability to monitor and follow / unfollow your followers and some great reporting features.
I highly recommend this combo. It's really helped me to enhance my social media following and engagement levels.
Make yourself ‘Followable’
There are a few simple things you can do which will increase the likelihood of people wanting to follow you.
Complete your profile
You don’t have a lot of characters to play with so it won’t take you long to fill in your profile. A lot of people don’t bother and it’s a sure fire way to restrict the number of people willing to follow you. If you’ve not filled in your profile then people know nothing about you and can’t make a sensible decision about whether you’d make a good addition to their network.
Be a real person
Another issue with not completing your profile is that potential followers also don’t know whether or not you’re a real person. There are an increasing number of spam-bots out there in twitterland. Prove you’re not one of them by filling out your profile and including a profile picture. You’re most likely to be followed if you come across as a regular Joe – so a picture of yourself rather than your logo (if you have one) is a great idea. And including your real name also goes a long way. It can seem quite strange exchanging ideas with someone whose name (and sometimes even gender) you’re unsure of!
Tweet, tweet, tweet
If you don’t say anything, you can be sure that no one will be interested in listening. At first, even when you do tweet there won’t be a whole heap of folk listening, but stick at it…
Share useful information and links
Make your tweets useful by sharing great links, retweet great tweets you see.. make your tweets indispensable and people will soon follow.
Talk to people!
Engage with people – don’t just follow and run… start a conversation or jump in on a conversation they’re already having. People are more likely to follow you if they can see that you’re a conversationalist that they’re likely to have some quality interaction with and you’ll enjoy Twitter a lot more that way too!
Tell people you’re on Twitter
Shout it from the rooftops… put it on your email footer, on your business cards, on your blog, tattoo it on your forehead.. whatever it takes, just let people know you’re tweeting and ask them to connect with you.
How to know who to follow
Of course, not everyone is worth following – here are some ideas for sorting the wheat from the chaff:
You don’t HAVE to follow back
A lot of people fall into the trap of thinking it’s ‘polite’ to follow back. Well that may be so but it’s also a sure fire way to get a bloated network full of people you’re not really talking to. A lot of businesses increase their number of followers simply by following hundreds of followers in the hope of a followback. This is pointless and following these people who have no intention of interacting with you will make your timeline bloated and diluted. So how do you know who you should follow?
Take a look at their profile
A profile can tell you a huge amount. As I mentioned before, an empty profile often tells you this is a person not worth following I’m afraid. If a profile is completed does it sound like you have interests in common? If you’re both MFL teachers looking to exchange ideas then bingo, you’re onto a winner… hit the follow button without delay.
Take a look at their tweets
What do they talk about? And are they interacting? If they’re regularly sharing links or ideas and there are plenty of @replies showing they’re engaged with their network then they’re likely to be a good person to follow.
See who you have in common
Twitter will tell you if you follow people in common – if you’re both interested in the same kinds of people then the chances are you’ll both be interested in each other too.
Find relevant people to follow
Here are a few simple ways of finding people you might be interested to follow:
Find lists – but be selective
Lists created by your network on twitter.com can be a great source of potential people to follow. There are also list services such as listorious and twellow which list tweeters in categories – but don’t just assume list membership means someone is a good follow. Do your usual checks or you risk bloating your follow list with people who aren’t relevant or engaging.
Follow people your followers follow
Another good way to find people to follow is to take a look at who the people you’re following follow. The people who share the best links are most engaging on Twitter tend to be following a lot of equally excellent tweeters that might make a valuable addition to your network.
Ask for recommendations
Tweet asking for recommendations of the best tweeters to follow. If you’re interested in a specific type of person, make it clear: ‘Can anyone recommend any great primary ed music tweeters to follow please? Please RT’ for example. People are always keen to recommend excellent members of their network and are likely to retweet your request if you’ve been a valuable connection for them.
Search for Hashtags
Search for twitter hashtags that are of interest to you and see who is posting with that hashtag – they may well be worth following.
Join in with Twitter Chats
A great way to engage with other twitter users and find some new relevant people to follow is to throw yourself in at the deep end and take part in a twitter chat. You’re also likely to gain some relevant followers this way too as long as you contribute to the conversation and exchange some good ideas.
And another thing…
Think QUALITY rather than QUANTITY
Remember – it’s not all about the numbers. It is better to have a small but highly relevant and engaged personal learning network than a PLN of thousands of people who you aren’t interested in and never exchange ideas with.

I like Sprout Social. You can see how your every tweet performed and compare your profile to your competitors. It also allows you to schedule your tweets. It's pretty expensive but it's worth it.
Use the relevant #tags to your post, it will help your post to reach the targeted audience!!

# Hashtags. When you tag enterprises all of their followers can see your tweet, it's the easiest way.
Make your Twitter presence visible. I can’t tell you how often I have read an interesting post and wanted to tweet the link, but couldn’t find the author’s Twitter username. So I gave up and moved on. Make it easy for people to follow you. Display links to your Twitter account in your email signature, your blog or website, business cards—everywhere. Or you can also buy quality followers from freelancers on sites like SEOclerks.
Try using the 10-4-1 Rule. It's a great way to make sure you're putting out the right balance of content and services.

Tweet deck and Hootsuite are great for organising social media feeds, focusing on hashtags and keywords, i also find Klout to be a great platform as well as it can help pinpoint key profiles you should follow in your chosen field but also it provides content you can share that is suitable to your chosen audience of which you can schedule to be tweeted at key times throughout the day. The more you are active and engage with your followers, the more presence you build on Twitter. At the end of the day its all about you and having something interesting to say or providing resources that people find interesting...it takes time. Track trends, join disscussions, answer questions...and hopefully your Twitter presence should start building.
Hootsuite, targeting, hashtags and time. There is no magical tool to increase your presence on twitter.
I am using hootsuite and twtrland which works me well so far. And for increasing your presence you try to post tweets with images and videos which makes you feel the difference from normal text post.
Did you use there term tools ??? I don't think that would be a good idea instead of targeting over tools. I would say better to try to make an impact over twitter because of your post not because of your tools as they are never going to give you any benefit.
Tools like hootsuite or socialbro are perfect for measurement or analytics. I would recomment stay alert with the trending topics hashtags and use them with your posts. Other action you can do is following to influential people and interact with their tweets, a lot of people will read the answers to their post, one of those answers will be yours. I hope i helped you a bit.
Greetings from Chile.
I really like TweetDeck. It keeps me organized, I can easily search keywords and save them in columns readily at my fingertips. For me, this helps me find relevant content, people I am interested in following and connecting with, and increase my engagement.
Now, I do use some Twitterfeed for some automated content, but it is "very" specific to my industry and helps continue to generate engagement when I am unable to be on everyday. More over, a lot of this content helps bring interesting companies and individuals to me because it mentions their company. You can also use Bufferapp which offers recommendations on autocontent for LI, FB and Twitter.
At the end of the day, it's about pulling content (using others content, responding and commenting) with a smaller ratio of pushing. It's important to lay out a plan of ideal targets for your business, those who can refer, and messaging to target them and deliver about your business.
Remember to have a little fun too by throwing in some "personal" content about what you're doing, what you enjoy, etc.
Photos and quotes provide the highest amount of interaction.
These all work very well for me and my clients.
Hope this helps!!
Tools like Hootsuite and Twibble are great for small businesses trying to establish a presence on social media sites like Twitter. They allow you to discover followers that you should be following, and filter your audience to include only real and engaged followers.
Another way to build your presence on Twitter is by adding popular or relevant hashtags to your tweets so your message can be seen by a broader audience.
If you happen to be a nonprofit organization there is a tool at Justcoz.org that allows followers to donate a tweet a day to your cause. This allows you to send a twitter to all of their followers. This can significantly increase your reach.
Just don't use any tools at all. The most effect way is to the Twitter as it was meant to be used. Manually. Be social and engage with people on a personal and individual level. Don't try to fake it or use tools. They won't get nearly the results and ROI as actually going on Twitter and using it to talk to people. Engage. Inform. Talk.
The best way to increase your twitter presence is to simply deliver a consistent message, on a continuous basis and interacting with other people you follow and with those that follow you. hoot suite can help you deliver the message over all social media outlets
