FollowFriday Helper, a Great Twitter Tool

Friday seems to come round quicker everyweek and I, like so many others, like to give my support to those that have been kind enough to me over the week by ReTweeting my posts etc, and it can be quite daunting sorting out a list of those that have. and then working out which of the Twitters have retweeted the most or mentioned you the most times over that week and if you are very popular on twitter it can be even more of a task .

So while searching the net I came across a handy [intlink id="retweet-rt-twitter" type="post"]Twitter Tool[/intlink] called FollowFriday Helper…

Twitter FollowFriday HelperOnce you have logged in with your Twitter account via Twitter Oauth, you can start recommending those Twitters that have been kind enough to have ReTweeted your tweets, mentioned you, ReTweets you’ve made to other Tweeters and even those that have already recommended you in the past, it’s simply to do and when you make your choice a list is loaded up with the Twitters avatar, bio, URL, location and other information about how many tweets they have mentioned you with etc. You can even see the tweets they have made about you, very handy when you want to know what they have tweeted or retweeted.

But the really nice thing that I like about Twitter FollowFriday Helper, is that it’s not just for FollowFriday, you can use it for a selection of other preset hashtags – #FollowFriday #ff #ThankYou #TY #Gratitude #Top #FollowSaturday #FollowSunday #FollowMonday #FollowTuesday #FollowWednesday #FollowThursday #FollowNow #FollowEveryDay #MustFollow #FollowerOfTheDay – plus, you can add your own in the tweetbox, so really you can use it for anything you want, I select my recommendation and then add a line of text at the end saying why I recommend them and then you get a tweet like this:

    What a good Omen this must be; just commented on Hesham’s post about it, lol.

    A little confused – it instantly pops up the names of all the twits that have used certain things so you can tweet back?

    Very nice, I haven’t spent time with #FF because of needing put together a good list of followers. This will help a lot.
    The one thing I’ve noticed is because of twitter list people don’t have to add you to follow you now, so my follow count has gone down, but my retweet and responses has gone up!

    • Karen says:

      Yeah, I noticed since the lists came to twitter my following has slowed down a bit, but everything else has increased ;)

  10. Karen says:

    Thanks Chuck ;) Don’t forget next time you comment to add your Twitter name ;)

  11. Gera says:

    I stopped doing FF because I didn’t have the time for it. I think this tool may come in handy. Not about to automatically recommend anyone though, regardless of the filter.

  15. Peter says:

    I am quite new to twitter and subsequently did not even know what the #FollowFriday actually meant (duh). But thanks to you, now I do – and this tool appears to make it even easier to do with limited time.

  16. Mitchell Allen says:

    Karen, this is a cool tool. I try to find things that will enhance my Twitter experience without dehumanizing myself. The FF helper seems like one such tool.

    Thanks for mentioning it on BloggerLuv! I wouldn’t seen it, otherwise :)



  17. I use FFHelper quite often even though I do try to remember people who aren’t just my most recent or most often communicated with as well.
