You know how you find that incredible Twitter app, use it a couple of times and then can’t remember where it was? Me too.

So I pulled this quick list together as much as a bookmark list for my own use as to share some apps you might not have seen yet.

It is not at all comprehensive and I left out all of the desktop, iPhone apps and mash-ups for another post coming soon.

Several people pointed that one out to me. Tweetlater is a good way to tweet your blog posts when you can't do it personally. Here's a link. http://www.tweetlater.com/


Excellent list of Twitter applications. You should add Twollo to the list too. A new friend finder. http://www.twollo.com

I second the "TweetDeck" suggestion. Sadly, Tweetag is no more. And while it's not an app, Twitterpacks is a great resource for Tweeters: http://twitterpacks.pbwiki.com


one more, very very new : http://www.twtask.com– very-simple-twitter-integrated-task-manager


also http://tweetthistext.com/ is a brand new service that can be quite useful.
