Twitter Relationship Management
There are a lot of people who simply do not have the time to figure out who to engage with on Twitter. These people include:
- Solopreneurs or small-business owners who need to spend most of their time managing their business, not their social media accounts.
- Social media consultants who find it difficult to remember who they have engaged with among all of their various client accounts.
- Social media community managers and teams who have to backtrack to see engagement made by other team members.
Even as an individual with a blog, I find it difficult to keep up with my mentions and direct messages on Twitter. No matter how much you want to talk to people, you simply can’t figure out where to start or you just don’t have the time.

Social media is about engagement, so there’s often quite a large debate about adding any automated elements to a social media campaign. Because let’s face it—no one wants to follow an account that’s essentially a bot. Or do they?
While some automation tools do nothing but make your social media profile look like an announcement board, other tools can be used to sync right into your normal engagement to give it a helpful boost.
Here are some Twitter automation tools, services and tips, which when used the right way, can be a valuable addition to your social media strategy. And when I say the right way, I mean that you should be using these to supplement your regular social engagement and not only using these tools to give your account the look of activity.
If you have a medium- to large-sized online network, you might have noticed some of your contacts have been developing their own communities in the form of private groups, forums or social networks that are a mixture of free or paid memberships.
