You may love Twitter, you may hate it. Yoy may be a social media fanatic or a reclusive privacy protector. But no matter what we think about social media, we have to admit that it has become a powerful tool – not only in entertainment, but also in advertising, marketing and branding. Whether you are using Facebook, Twitter or Instagram for your personal sharing needs or are working on the next big thing – being able to work with, organize and manage your media on your mobile device is essential.
With the unfortunate walking out of TweetDeck, we are one good option short. However, there are still plenty of alternatives for managing your Twitter and other posts.
One of the most popular ones, and the one some users actually preferred to TweetDeck, is HootSuite. It is not an application per say, but a web-based service that helps you manage various social media accounts and actually lets you have up to 5 different profiles (and that’s in the free version).
Powered with analytics and tools allowing for internal communication, Hootsuite is a powerful and well-organized platform. With a free mobile version available across Android and IOS platforms, it’s a great and comprehensive solution for keepin on track with various acounts, whether from your mobile or laptop.
UberSocial is a true application in form and also allows you to manage various accounts at one go. This application focuses on Twitter and is best known for being a reliable Twitter client. So when it comes to Twitter management, UberSocial can boast some cool features, like selecting a list of favourite contacts and setting their tweets as “priority” in your timeline. However, in addition to tweeting, you will be able to cross post your status updates across Facebook and Gchat.
TweetCaster is another app that is Twitter-oriented, as the name suggests, without including other social media, like Facebook. TweetCaster has been praised for its creative approach to interface, which is prettier and more intuitive than its competitors have put forward. When it comes to functionality, the app has a lot to say as well. TweetCaster offers to manage your multiple Twitter accounts and sync them with other media, send you notifications of tweets and mentions from the list of users you select and lots and lots of designer additions, allowing to pick a theme, install a widget and even add filter effects to the photos you post.
As we have mentioned a bit earlier in the post, social media, and specifically Twitter, are getting to be more and more business-oriented. So if business is the reason behind your social media activity and you are not in it to follow celebrity gossip and fish out pictures of balding classmates – Sprout Social is the right app for you. As the application is geared towards business you will find more options for analyzing your post’s performance and will be able to make changes to increase readability and reach. You will be able to schedule your tweets and collaborate with teams – if you are not the only one managing the account. Sprout Social is available on both platforms, Android and IOS, but does come with a hefty minimum plan price tag of $39 (and the maximum of $99 for the all-feature plan).
