    Hi Josh! Great list.  I'd love to include it in a piece I'm working on (with appropriate credit of course).  Would like to get your permission...

    Searching Social Networks like twitter is great, it reminds me of that helps search social Bookmarks... we can track social bookmarks by username

    I think is one of the best ways I've found to search the top tweets.

  • Apr 19 Posted 7 years ago JoshPeters So long as there is credit given there's never a problem with linking.
  • Apr 16 Posted 7 years ago JoshPeters Ari, thank you for that one, I will need to do a follow up list with the ones people have clued me into that I didn't have.

    Apr 16 Posted 7 years ago ariherzog You neglected to mention my favorite search tool to find people -- specifically to triangulate which people are followed by sets of two or three other people.

    Meaning, if I want to view a list of everyone that I and you and the White House collectively follow, I visit Twiangulate. Very useful.

    The rest of your list is equally useful. ;)

  • Apr 16 Posted 7 years ago JoshPeters Thanks Neil. Even after looking at all of these it was hard to determine what I am going to use regularly, i'm still playing with some of them.

    NP, thanks for letting me know, I'll be sure to add it to the new ones I've been clued into since doing this post.

    Gido, I haven't seen one that does it all because some of them are directories for specific types of people, events, tags, etc. But many of them are similar so I wouldn't use them all the time.

    Thanks Ted, and thanks for spreading it even further. Hope it's a resource that lots of people can use.

    Andy, I like Twellow, social mention, wefollow, tweepsearch, and some of the others just depending on what I'm doing.

    Apr 15 Posted 7 years ago NeilFerree Great list Josh! I like to look at the uberVU graphs on a variety of keywords and trending topics and the Twitter count / feed is always at the top. It will difficult to select which of your 50 I'll be using in the near term.



  • Apr 15 Posted 7 years ago JoshPeters You're both welcome, I'm glad you enjoyed it. I've been slowly collecting them for over a month and this morning saw how many I had compiled and decided it was time for a post. I really hope you get some good use out of this list.
  • Apr 15 Posted 7 years ago IngridA Thanks for taking the time to compile this fantastic list. Great to know :)! And I look forward to checking some of these out.
