I don't know about you but Twitter is my favourite social media channel and I love it. There are a lot of Twitter tools out there and I use a lot of them.

The last few years I tried as many Twitter tools and apps I could find. Some of them were just OK, others were great. Many of them I still use today and others have faded.
