This week was the most fabulous #Toolschat ever. Thanks everyone for joining us, you all contributed amazing content as you can see from the many resources I gathered from the transcript.
A special thanks goes to this weeks guest, Kelly Kim from @Twylah, hosting the chat with @MQTodd and me. Try out Twylah here.
I was absolutely thrilled to see 58 people participating in this weeks #ToolsChat and if you want, you can follow them here.
Below you will find all the tools and posts that were mentioned starting with question 1 to question 5.
What are the best tools to read your Tweets?
Flipboard – Ipad App that focuses on displaying your Tweets visually
TweetDeck – Especially the columns feature for lists, or search terms was mentioned.
HootSuite – Similarly the columns from HootSuite were seen as very helpful to read tweets.
StrawberryApp – An App that only shows you the most mentioned Tweets from your timeline
Summify – Gives you the top 5 stories from each day.
Apps to fight information overload
Twylah – Looking at someone’s Twylah page instead of Twitter stream can make life a lot easier.
Proxlet – Filters out hashtags, people or terms you don’t want to show up in your stream, i.e. paper.li or foursquare tweets.
Refynr – Provides you with a new stream based on keywords you have entered.
SlipStream – Filters your stream in a similar way to Proxlet above.
Hootsuite – You can also put filters in for HootSuite to fight information overload
A great answer was also that you shouldn’t try to catch everything but dip in and out to read tweets.
How can you filter your stream?
Formulists – A tool to make creating your lists easier was mentioned heavily
Klout – The Klout Chrome extension was mentioned as a way to unclutter your stream
