Feeling overwhelmed by all the additional work social media requires?
Don’t worry; you’re not alone.
The good news is that a number of free tools allow you to automate some of your Twitter activities. I recommend Social Oomph to help ease your workload and boost your productivity on Twitter.
Perhaps some of you remember this service when it first launched as Tweet Later, allowing you to schedule Twitter posts. Now it does much more, acting as a hub for all your Twitter accounts. It enables you to automate following and messaging, and it sends you emails of mentions of your keywords on Twitter.
Like most social media productivity services, Social Oomph has free and paid versions. It’s a good idea to try the free version or trial of the professional version before paying for a monthly subscription.
I’ve found I can do most of what I want using the free service, which includes:
1. Add an unlimited number of Twitter accounts. I’m not aware of a similar service that allows you to add as many Twitter accounts as you want, automating both following and publishing, without charging you.
