Twitter is growing at a phenomenal rate and so is the eco-system around it. 10-15 new apps are being launched every single day. While most of them are MEME applications, few are really interesting and worth a shot.

I’ve put together a list of Twitter related applications which are fairly new and do serve the purpose..[Follow @tnerd on Twitter]

Here you go….

Tweet CCTweetCC is one of the latest Twitter related services which lets Twitter users publish and license tweets with Creative Commons.

So how do you really license your tweets, it’s simple, tweet this msg.. “@tweetcc: I license my tweets under a Creative Commons Public Domain Dedication license”

Visit tweetcc.com to know about licensing options..

TwitterDMer TwitterDMer: This service lets its users send customized DM’s to a follower. All you have to do is loging with your Twitter login details choose one of the customized DM’s or come up with your own and that’s it, now all your new followers will get a personal DM-greeting from you automatically.

Twisten.fmTwisten.FM is a service which “crawls Twitter for tweets about music. Then you listen to them.” For example a message like the one in the following image gets the attention of Twisten.FM and is grabbed for a song.

TwittAdTwittad lets Twitter users monetize their Twitter profiles by selling their backgrounds to the advertisers. The ads can be sold for 7 days, 15 days, 1 Month, 3 Months, etc..
All the transactions are made using PayPal.

TwickieTwickie offers a meaningful service where all the replies to a particular tweet can be viewed as a regular chat-like conversation and can also be posted on blogs with proper formatting.

Example of conversations are displayed..



twtTRIPtwtTRIP is a wonderful service helping travelers make the most out of their travel plans. Once you post your travel plans on twtTRIP it alerts you of events at the location you are travelling at the specified time.

Not only events but it does the same for other twitterers. Once a Trip is posted you get a custom URL which can be used to add new travel plans, here is mine.

SecretTweetSecrettweet can come to rescue when you want to confess or tell something to someone but just cannot for whatever reasons.

Visit secrettweet.com and tweet your heart out, which is posted on @screttweet. All of it is completely anonymous.

Following image shows some sample Tweets on Secrettweet



RetweetistRetweetist scans through the twitter and tracks the most RT’d messages and people. This is probably the most popular twitter based service on this list. Definitely worth checking out!

TwitterMemeTwitterMeme crawl and collects links on Twitter then it categorizes these links and gauges their important based on who tweeted them first and how many tweets they’ve received.



CoTweetCoTweet is mainly for brand and corporate. It offers a solution where multiple people can manage one single account but still holding different identities by attaching their individual signatures to tweets.

It helps companies and brands tracking their brands and feedback on Twitter.



TweetLaterTweetLater is a collection of twitter tools put together. TweetLater lets you send you new followers a custom Thank You note, schedule your tweets, setup Tweet alerts, etc..

    Great fun list of twitter apps. I hadn't heard of a lot of them before now. Secret tweet was really jammed up!

    I've got more twitter apps listed too at http://www.autotweet.info/ so there are a lot of them out there! Mostly free too!

    Hey TNerds,

    Found your site using [auto tweets] in Google search. This post was pretty good, although somewhat dated BUT, I wanted to tell you the theme your using is quite nice and yuy guys have done a good job customizing it. Once I have my techie guy figure out if it can embed a Google Wave widget into its CSS and if it works w/out too many hiccups, I will convert a handful of site with it - so I'm glad I found you.

    BTW. I've seen the toolbar you're using at the bottom and would appreciate a tip or pointer on how to get this diddy?

    Clicked your RSS, added you to my must reada feeds.

    I recently came to know about two very good Twitter tools that you might want to include in your list.

    Tweepi is great for cleaning your follow and unfollow list.
    with PowerTwitter, you can see and view a YouTube video right within the Twitter panel and track your FB Friends/fans

    I use both of these new Twitter tools in my Social Media and my Link Bulding operations
