This is the last of my three-post series about new Twitter apps and tools I recently found. We already covered a set of new-to-me Twitter clients and seven tools for using Twitter in unexpected ways. This post is all about fun!

Here are seven tools that focus solely on how to make Twitter fun â€¦ and much more addictive.

FunTweet

FunTweet will create pictures of your tweets, putting an image to your 140-character words of wisdom. Your followers can click on the FunTweet link to see your graphical tweet.

Ianswr

Ianswr collects questions asked on Twitter and allows anyone to answer them, with the goal of enabling near-instantaneous replies as well as amplifying the reach of your questions.

To ask a question, start a discussion or get recommendations simply tag your tweet with #ianswr or #answr. To respond to a question, go to the Ianswr web site and click the ANSWR button found below the question. You receive points every time you respond to a question, and the top list showcases the people with the most points.

Penolo

Are you a Twitter user who likes to draw? Penolo is for you. The site lets you create a sketch, and share it on Twitter. You can draw with a line with varying thickness, a circle, a rectangle and even use text. When your drawing is complete, you save it and out it goes as a tweet.

Tweekly.fm

Tweekly.fm lets Twitter users post their Last.fm statistics automatically each week with the hashtag of your choice. You also get a Tweekly.fm profile showing you how many other users share your taste in music. You can find new people to connect with and comment on their most listened-to artists.

Twitbrain

Use Twitter to test your brain power by figuring out the math problems posted. For example: Do you know the answer to 559 + (6 * 60) â€“ 69? No calculators, please! See the answer at the bottom of this post.

To play on Twitter, just follow @twitbrain and watch for the twitbrain â€śchallenge problemsâ€ť posted (there are two an hour). Be the first person to reply with the correct answer and you win a point. Point leaders are listed on the Twitbrain website.
