4 twitter web apps to manage followers and following
With my Twitter followers and following lists into the 100s, I wanted to streamline them, so I don’t get too many tweets from verbose twitterers tweeting off subject, follow back with the follow-worthy, and opt-in or opt-out a handful of randoms to keep the twitter stream interesting. Here’s 4 web apps that are super for follow management:
- PeopleBrowsr – wowwie! this is the swiss-army knife of twitter apps.. dices & slices & everything.. even things I’ve never thought possible.. I think of it as the web-based Tweetdeck.. plus, it’s an ultimate dashboard for twitter and also other social networks too, e.g. facebook, plaxo..
- FriendOrFollow – enter your username, no login required, and sort your lists as following, fans, and friends.. avatar-based sorter
- MyTweeple – login with username and password, sync with twitter, then manage followers and friends with follow / unfollow / block
- TweetBuddy – “promoting the ethical acquisition & management of Twitter followers”.. login for TweetBuddy Prune Tool to manage following, followers, and two-way follows.. Prune Lite lets you see your lists without using your password.. I dont’ like how the developers identity is hidden.. a newer design would be more inviting..
There are a bunch of other web apps in the follow management category at the Twitter Fan Wiki. 2 other web apps that look really useful for house-cleaning: UnTweeps [unfollow tweeps who have not posted recently] and MyCleenr [rids inactive accounts that you’re following].
I've been using Friend or Follow. I've seen PeopleBrowser, but haven't looked at it yet. I've been using Ping.fm since I used Twitter and FB daily.
Great list. We launched Tweepi 2 weeks ago to fill the gap in some of these applications. Tweepi provides information about each user listed including number of tweets, rts made, how many times rt'ed, replies sent/received and so on.
