One thing I’m asked quite often is how do I keep track of my Tweets, comments, retweets and conversations on Twitter. I do like to use the native Twitter app on my phone and log in from my computer every few days to manage Twitter, but for overall management Hootsuite is my favorite way to keep track of my Twitter activity. It’s perfect for scheduling multiple tweets ahead of time.
What I love about Hootsuite is the ability to watch several streams at one time. Scheduled Tweets, retweet, see current active tweets, and see the timeline of all the incoming Tweets from the people I follow. You can also watch what’s going on on Facebook and Google pages. Hootsuite has made it easy to manage multiple platforms and for managing multiple accounts. I’ll share with you another tip for managing Twitter. Check out Commun.it. On Commun.it you can manage multiple Twitter profiles, say thanks for following, tag your most active followers and retweet with a click of your mouse.

I love hootsuite and other programs like Sprout Social for monitoring all of my interactions and keywords. However posting from them can backfire. I recently read an article on the difference in engagement with branded/schedule posts via hootsuite and the like. Huge decrease when users see that you are scheduling out posts.
The trick is to do both. You want a lot of activity and sometimes it’s impossible to be on all the time. I schedule posts and intermittently jump on for live interaction. Especially during the time I know my audience is actively online.
