I’ve tried out lots of tools to manage Twitter since I joined over five years ago, but most have left me frustrated.
For the longest time, I used the Twitter website, and later graduated to TweetDeck. And then I finally tried HootSuite.
My main reason for trying it out was to manage all of my Twitter accounts in one place, but I quickly realized it was a dashboard to manage my other social media accounts, too.
HootSuite has a free version, as well as a paid HootSuite Pro option.
The free version works for users checking on their personal accounts, as it’s limited to adding five accounts and it is ad supported.
But I’d suggest going Pro for any business users that are managing a variety of accounts across Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn, foursquare, and more.
HootSuite Pro also provides a free, enhanced analytics report, archiving, as well as integration with Google Analytics and Facebook Insights.
I’ve found HootSuite pro so valuable that I have a second monitor on my desk that is dedicated to it, so I can quickly and easily monitor followers, lists, and hashtags.
