5 New Twitter Apps to Play with Over the Weekend

By Alyssa Gregory

We’re winding down another week, and I’d like to add to your weekend distractions by sharing a list of new Twitter tools that recently launched. Give them a try and come back to share your thoughts.


Bccth.is is a free Twitter client that allows you to send private messages to selected followers as blind carbon copies to make sure they see your tweets, and then continue that discussion in private. The tool, which is a fully functional Twitter client, automatically shortens URLs, stores all of your sent and received messages, and clearly shows you the number of participants and comments in each of your conversations.


Tweet Hopper

Tweet Hopper is a new way to manage multiple Twitter accounts. It has functionality that allows multiple people to tweet to one account, and it auto-follows followers and tweets RSS feeds.

Tweety Jobs

TweetyJobs is a free tool that turns Twitter into a job search community and connects jobseekers with employers. By entering in a job title and location, you can search hundreds of thousands of jobs in the Twittersphere and beyond, send messages to employers and set up job alerts. More community-based features are planned for this year.

TweetYourMail.com lets you share email messages with your Twitter followers. All you do is send your email to tweet@tweetyourmail.com and your message is tweeted and posted on a web page hosted by tweetyourmail.com. All email addresses are converted to ***@***.*** to protect privacy.

Tweet Your Mail


Tweetz.tv shows YouTube videos mentioned on Twitter through three different channels — My TV, Public TV and Search TV. My TV shows the videos that are posted by the people you follow, Public TV shows all videos posted in the public timeline and with Search TV you can look for tweeted videos on a specific topic.

    This is an excellent post. I’d also add to this weekend list the relatively new search tool TipTop to try out for fun.

  • Site Reviver

    Excellent post, I like the Tweet hopper very much.

    Actually I was looking for some tool that can manage multiple twitter accounts.

    Thanks for sharing this.

    Just tried tweetyourmail.com
    How do they do that? Even the images which do not show up on my email client clearly showed up on the webpage… Now I don’t have to spam my friends with all those interesting forwards…
