The Most Complete Twitter Application List Available - 2011 Edition

I believe this is the best, most complete and accurate list of valuable Twitter applications available on the internet right now.

To be fair, I absolutely have merged and plagiarized other older and outdated lists that I found (the larger ones are credited below).  However, I spent a good deal of time to clean out the dead applications, delete the apps that were overly quirky or being developed, focus more on the apps that increase productivity, and add in many of the new great apps that have come out over the past six months - particularly in the productivity / business apps section where my primary interest lies.  I have also tagged the tools that cost money / have a premium option ($) as well as if they have a valuable free option (F/$).

Finally, while application selection can be a personal thing, I tagged my favorite app (*) in each category.

I will try and update this list over time, but you can be assured that as of May, 2011, every site on this list has been tested and is up and running (or tagged as being in beta/alpha).  I don't guarantee that the apps all work, but the sites were definitely up and running.  Please e-mail me or add a comment with any new apps or corrections you find that you'd like me to add.

    Great post!
    top videos:

    Our top video of 2010 is an easy choice. 'Baby' by Justin Bieber and featuring Ludacris is the most watched video in YouTube history. Closing in on 300 million views, this Justin Bieber video is another tale of him trying to woo a fair maiden. We don't want to spoil the ending, but you already know he gets the girl, because, like our top videos of 2010 list, Justin Bieber never loses.

    If you want a tool to send messages for you, evaluate your statistics, or do anything outside of analyze Twitter traffic at a generic level, you'll need to allow access to the system. 

    Realize that these systems are not storing or have access to the password itself.   It's the same thing that happens in Facebook, Yahoo, Open ID, etc..    You shouldn't do it without thinking, but this is not the same thing as providing someone your password.

    I use DESTROY TWITTER on my desktop and find it is the top TWITTER client available. I would like to be able to position the updates where I want on the screen rather than the top or bottom positions currently available choose from, which are not very convenient as the updates appear on the left side of desktop. (difficult to read). Is there any way to integrate the updates in to a BLOGGER BLOG like ?

    Hi, just found your list which is awesome. I am just looking for a simple tool to filter and sort my followers and friends. So I checked out on your list. It is now Contaxio so you might want to update the link to:

    Thanks for doing all the leg work!

  • Jul 6 Posted 5 years ago rustlem (not verified)

    Hi. Really great list, thanks. One service you missed was Not sure how you would categorize it, but it enables you to identify who follows any twitter user but that you dont follow, and much more besides.

    Wow that is some list. I have it bookmarked. Great to have others adding their favourites too!

    Good catch Arne.   I corrected it.  Thanks.

    Hi Eric, what a great list! I've found one tiny little mistake though: the link to Peerindex should be  in stead of .com. Thanks

    Got my invite for Social Bro and I really like it!   Added that in..

    I added all suggestions except for SocialBro since that's still in Beta and I couldn't confirm that it is working.

    I'll add Tweetbot later today when I add some of the other new ones in here, but it is very similar to TweetAdder.

    I erred on the side of a "quick description" in the interest of space so I could maximize the number of working applications I could list.   Many of the apps are similar and preference falls to cost, unique features, and what user interface you like.   

    Thanks for your comment!

    Good add-ons.   I haven't looked at the comments in a week or so, but I'll get these added in later today.

  • Jun 4 Posted 6 years ago John Keogh (not verified)

    I recommend TeeWee (iPhone app). I tried this when the official Twitter app introduced its trend bar and never went back.

  • Jun 4 Posted 6 years ago DerekLand

    You left out Tweetbot. No list of Twitter-related services or apps is complete without Tweetbot.


    Some items didn't have a good description, which I thought seemed a bit hasty. Just a thought, but I think if you have a reason to include them in an article, at least give a tidbit about that app specifically.



  • Jun 3 Posted 6 years ago Daniele Mazzini (not verified)

    Addendum - I just noticed that the article was from May (I just got the link from Twitter though!). If you'd like to add hashtagify it would be even more complete though :)


  • Jun 3 Posted 6 years ago Daniele Mazzini (not verified)

    Hi Eric

    I only published the app this week, so it's understandable that you didn't know about it, but maybe could make the list with the other tags apps...

    By the way, good work!

    Hi Eric, nice list!

    I know that it is impossible to know and list every Twitter app in the ecosystem. Any way here you have some of my apps: <- analytics, crm, follower & lists management <- directory and recommendations tools <- find your facebook friends on Twitter <- advanced tweeps search engine <- influential tweeps directory <- tweeps search engine



  • Jun 1 Posted 6 years ago Emer Kirrane (not verified)

    You've got to have Twitalyzer in the list of analytics tools -

    I added DestroyTwitter to the list - although I found it to be relatively similar to many of the other clients.

  • May 25 Posted 6 years ago Bart (not verified)

    Great and useful list!

    Think you missed DestroyTwitter. It's an Adobe Air app and I found it most useful for use on the Mac.

    Cheers. Bart

  • May 20 Posted 6 years ago Wayne Mansfield (not verified)


    Have I been looking for this list for my continuing Twitter adventure... my current favourite app is by a small Australian outfit - it is and it is so good I oay for the pro version. [I am NOT associated with the co - just love it!!] 

    Pet hate: Word verification that is unreadible to the naked eye - 3 gos so far!!

    I actually had TweetEffect on the list initially, but I had a few people tell me that they found it rather useless.   I tested it myself with my Twitter Account (ericsgoldstein) and found the info to be very confusing.   First, it says that over the past 170 posts, I've only gained 2 followers - impossible.   I'm gaining 50-100/day.

    Second, the measurements seem to show +9, then -9, then +9, then -9,  then +15, then -15.   

    Even the total followers seems off.

    I posted a tweet with some feedback as well and will see if they respond.

    Thanks - I'll get the other suggestions up in the next day or so.

  • May 19 Posted 6 years ago Sarah Skelly (not verified)

    Wowzer!,  Eric.  That is an amazing list of resources.  Scanned through the list looking to see if TweetEffect was there....did I miss it!  Found it to be a very useful tool to see what posts followers like or don't like. Will be sure to RT this list to my tweeps. As a Twitter newbie, I certainly appreciate having all these Twitter tools listed in one place. Thanks for the great information.

    Added ChiliTweets.   Not sure why, but I can't seem to get any information out of it yet.  I'll see if any information comes later.

  • May 17 Posted 6 years ago Mario1 (not verified)

    Thanks a lot for this list!

    You missed a brand new service called Chilitweets. This application find the most important links in the personal Twitter timeline.

  • May 16 Posted 6 years ago John Gray (not verified)

    Great list Eric! Thanks for putting out an excellent source of research. We don't make every list, but here's a look at your Mentionmapp Stay tuned we working on a new HTML5 version.

    A couple for the follow / unfollow list: &

  • May 16 Posted 6 years ago Michael Kvakin (not verified)

    Good job, appreciate it.

    'd suggest adding (Who's not following you back on Twitter?) and (Easily browse through your old tweets.)


  • May 16 Posted 6 years ago Jean-Philippe (not verified)

    This is amazing Eric, amazing to see all of those links, websites, application, and so question will remain for everybody....WHERE TO START ????

    Interesting site Krack..  Will add it to the list.   While volume does not equal quality, it is part of the game..

    May 15 Posted 6 years ago Eric Goldstein


    Eric Kim provided me a beta account -- good stuff.   So, I added Twylah into the list.   I'll be curious to see what other things are added.

    Eric - Thanks so much for putting together such a comprehensive list. A lot of work went into this post. And thanks to the other comments that keep adding to the list. 

  • May 14 Posted 6 years ago Michelle Sullivan (not verified)

    Great resource - thanks very much for pulling all of this together. What a lot of work!

  • May 14 Posted 6 years ago Quy Le (not verified)

    How about Fan Page List? - we have a pretty good list of top Twitter brands and celebrities.

  • Eric Goldstein's picture
    May 13 Posted 6 years ago Eric Goldstein


    Twylah seems interesting - kind of an on-line flipboard, but it's in request for invite mode.  I tried signing up, but haven't received anything yet.   I'll wait until it's more readily avaialble so people don't try it and get frustrated.



  • May 13 Posted 6 years ago Jocelyn Wilhelm (not verified)

    How about twylah? --->

    Triberr is interesting - any chance you could get me an invite code for it?   DM it to me at @ericsgoldstein if you have one. 

  • Eric Goldstein's picture
    May 13 Posted 6 years ago Eric Goldstein

    It is obviously almost impossible to get EVERY twitter app out there.

    My goal was to merge many of the lists that I had come across - many that had old and outdate links.   I also wanted to add in the newer ones that I had come across and had been using.

    I did like the four that were mentioned and I added them all in.  Can't guarantee I'll have time to do this with every app!  But, I'll try and get the new ones in there.

  • May 13 Posted 6 years ago Craig Kelley (not verified)

    Nice list!  Could you add please?  Scheduled and Branded Twitter tweets for free.

    May 13 Posted 6 years ago CliffFigallo

    Hey, Eric. Thanks. Good service. I'm sure it's a challenge to find, list and categorize every single Twitter app. There's probably a few that just got released this morning. ;^)

  • May 13 Posted 6 years ago Jeff Fisher (not verified)

    I like your attempt at categorization but you are missing many!

    Topsy, Sulia.... the list of "missing" is very long!!!

  • May 13 Posted 6 years ago twiends (not verified)

    Excellent post Eric,

    You missed out a couple:

    twiends - which is an excellent social site to meet fellow twitter friends, see their videos and facebook fan pages.

    triberr - interesting site that allows you to multiply your audience in the twitter universe by joining a tribe of fellow twitter users that retweet everything that you post.
