Twitter, in case you haven’t already discovered, is somewhat similar to instant messaging. It lets users send free text messages known as "tweets" explaining what they are doing, seeing or thinking. These tweets are delivered instantly to their followers.
Twitip.com has highlighted its top Twitter tools:
TweetDeck aims to evolve the existing functionality of Twitter by taking an abundance of information i.e. Twitter feeds, and breaking it down into more manageable bite sized pieces.
Twhirl is similar to TweetDeck, except it lets you access multiple Twitter accounts directly through the software.
Ping.fm lets you broadcast your tweets to social networking sites such as Windows Live, Facebook and MySpace.
Tweetburner allows you to shorten, send out and track links sent via Twitter.
GroupTweet is ideal for when you want to a tweet a certain group of your followers, friends or family.
Twitter Timer simply sends you reminders through Twitter.
Tweetbeep alerts you whenever someone mentions any keyword you want to follow.
Qwitter lets you know who has ceased following you and which tweet prompted them to do so.
TweetLater allows you to schedule your tweets for a later date/time.
