How to: Auto Follow and DM, Track keywords on Twitter and more!

If you're new to Twitter, you may want to read this. And even if you're not new to Twitter, and want to automate your tasks on Twitter, read on.

I'm going to introduce Tweetlater - please don't assume about their name and think that all they do is allow to schedule your tweets to a later time. They offer way more than that. Here's what Tweetlater CAN do: 

Send automated thank you notes to new followers, and automatically follow new followers, if you choose to do so. Optionally, select to vet (approve, ignore, block) new followers before we perform your selected automation tasks.

You can set up alerts and track keywords in the public Twitter stream. Tweetlater will monitor the Twitter tweet stream and periodically email you a digest of the tweets that contain those keywords. You can also use this to track your @replies.
Schedule tweets and keep your Twitter stream ticking over with new tweets even when you're not in front of your computer. Publish tweets when your international followers are online and you're asleep.
Save draft tweets, frequently used text snippets and URLs and reuse them in your scheduled tweets. Save tons of time by avoiding repetitive typing.

Grab your own personal 140-character tweet scheduling engine and RSS feed. You can schedule and publish tweets that don't go to Twitter, they go to your personal tweet stream, which is available in RSS, XML and Javascript formats.

Josh's Verdict: All that, and for free too! You can add and manage as many Twitter accounts as you want. Sign up Today, like I did. Tweetlater helped me automate a number of tasks which would take me way too long if I did it manually - After all, I have 10k+ followers!
