Three Tip Thursday: How do I use Tweepi?

Tweepi is a fairly common Twitter management tool that people throw around the name of. Even with the free version of the tool, there are many different ways for you to use Tweepi to your advantage, while not engaging in any questionable Twitter practices.

When you first head over to use Tweepi, you’re greeted with the following question: “How would you like to manage your Twitter account, today?”

How do I use Tweepi?

Since it’s Three Tip Thursday, I’m going to focus on three ways you can use Tweepi today. After that, you can explore other features (or perhaps we’ll do a follow-up post with even more ways to use Tweepi).

1. Cleanup the Inactives

There will always be accounts that you follow and then they become inactive. You don’t need to have these accounts taking space in your “Following” list, so you can use Tweepi to go through and find those inactive accounts. You can also use this tool to take a look and see if there are any strange accounts that you are following. It is extremely easy to change a Twitter username, and an account may change to a focus that you are just not interested in. Tweepi’s search functions allow you to see all of this information and determine who to unfollow.

Head over to the “Cleanup the Inactives” portion of Tweepi and take a look. Your columns will look different than mine before you reconfigure based on your desired categories.

From here, you can sort by the “Last Tweet” function to find when each user’s last tweet was, and you can unfollow based on that number (if that is how you choose to base your following).

2. Follow List Members

While you can follow someone’s Lists through Twitter, you might be interested in following the individuals on that list as well. When you use Tweepi, you can connect with the list of users, and easily highlight and follow all of the members much more easily than through the native Twitter client. For example, if you would like to follow the members of an organization, it is likely that the organization has a list with their official members. You can then follow the members individually and learn even more! (The example in the photo is @collectivess, of which I am a member.)

3. Find New Accounts to Follow

Finally, you can use Tweepi to find suggestions of who to follow. Have a user on Twitter who you admire? You can easily see who they follow, and follow accordingly. If you are a more local business, you can follow based on location (as seen in the column options above). You can begin to learn from the accounts your mentors are learning from as well!

Tweepi can be a great tool to add to your arsenal of social media management strategies. Always be careful that you are complying with terms of service, and, if you aren’t sure, or have a question, feel free to ask!

What other Twitter management tools do you use?
