As many of you know for the last six months or so I have been really busy working in online public relations both freelancing for my own clients and working as a Tweasier Feature Setdigital consultant for the lovely people at Lucre Communications in Leeds. To be honest that’s not all I have been doing, I have also been working late at night, burning the old midnight oil to produce Tweasier which is my Twitter management application.

Why have I done this? Well over the last three years or so I have used almost every twitter tool available, apart from some of the more spammy nasty ones that we all try to avoid. There are some truly great tools out there but I felt there was a real gap in the market for a tool that would help people get more from Twitter.

It all came from an idea after I started blogging specifically just about useful Twitter tools. The Tweasier blog started to grow in stature and popularity and I started to think that maybe a tool should be developed which has some really great features.

The application is packed with helpful services, allowing Twitter users to do any of the following:

  • Run, save and clone Twitter searches based on location, keywords and personal biographies so conversations can be monitored.
  • Receive personalised email notifications informing the user about their activity within the Twittersphere
  • Visit Tweasier’s fully equipped analytics suite – providing more than 30 different up-to-date statistics on any Twitter account. Some of the graphs and data can also be exported for use in future presentations or reports.
  • Sort an account’s friends or followers by more than 20 different criteria such as: people that haven’t tweeted in the last 30 days, people that didn’t follow the user back and also prune your friends to clear an account up if necessary.
  • Users can take a quick peek at Twitter conversations between two people to get both sides of the story.
  • Users can read messages, tweet, direct message and even shorten long URLs using Tweasier’s dedicated Twitter client.
  • Scheduled tweeting – users can write and save several tweets until later in the day
  • Users can use Tweasier’s own in-house ranking system which easily shows whether a user is worth following or not

Now if you read my blog regularly you will know I have been involved in various internet projects, some of which I have shared on the blog before. However, this was much more of a substantial undertaking but thankfully we have finally managed to get it ready for beta testing. I have messaged my online buddies asking them for their feedback as I am genuinely looking to create something which helps people out. So rather than writing a post that goes on for ever, I thought I would share Tweasier’s walkthrough video with you here.

The product is only in beta testing (so please be gentle) but we are hoping its users will help us find the bugs so we can eradicate as many as possible.

For those of you more social, you can like Tweasier on Facebook, follow us on Twitter or simply subscribe to the blog.

I hope you like Tweasier but if you have any questions or you fancy an invite, feel free to drop me a line.
