Therefore, and in efforts to help you obtain the most value out of your social media experience via Twitter, I prepared for you a list of the 5 top free Twitter time-saving applications and sites available online:
- TwitIQ: A service which is very similar to Twitter yet offers you added value through options such as simple “retweet” and “reply” buttons which save time and hassle, in addition to the ability to add and remove followers without leaving the site, both easily and quickly.

- TwitterFeed: A tool that effectively utilizes time through allowing users to update their Twitter account with their most recent blog posts therefore there is no need for manually entering updates into Twitter. (Must see video: Guy Kawasaki on TwitterFeed)
- Last but not least, our newly launched Tweepi: We built this tool with the soul objective of saving time and effort through a unique and fast way to follow and unfollow tweeps with style and quality! Tweepi works with numbers calculating the number of tweets and retweets a tweep has made in the last week and the follower to following ratio in order to ensure that you follow quality tweeps within a few seconds! Tweepi also enables you to flush deadbeat followers, reciprocate follows and cleanup inactive users.
