Twitter Tool Tuesday – Tweet Spinner

Print Friendly

Tweet Spinner is designed to help automate the flow of Twitter followers. The tool offers a host of filters/options for following and unfollowing other Twitter users. These include:

“Purge” – this help users find spam accounts as well the people not following you back.

“Prune” – trawls through the people you’re following and suggests the ones you should unfollow. Unfollow suggestions usually consist of people who haven’t tweeted in a while, people who tweet too many URLs or people who tweet too much.

“Followback” – identifies people who are following you (but you don’t follow back).

“Mimic Following” – helps you find people who other Twitter users follow (but you don’t yet follow).

Tweet Spinner also has tools for Direct Messages including a one-click inbox spam cleanse and auto DMs for welcoming new followers. Additionally the tool lets users schedule rotation of Twitter profiles and designs – useful for people who have more than one thing to promote.

All-in-all Tweet Spinner is a useful tool for growing Twitter followers whilst keeping them all relevant. The auto DM features are a nice touch; however I would air on the side of caution when/if using them as they may come across as spam to other Twitter users, which could lead to them unfollowing you.
