In less than an hour, I’ll be on stage at the Twitter Conference (#140tc) on a panel to talk about tools. Here’s the list I gave Steve Broback in advance, with some examples:

iPhone :
Twittelator Pro
http://www.stone.com/Twittelator/Twittelator_Screens.html
* I just like the interface – it took a little getting used to (because it’s different from TweetDeck). I use TP if what I want to do is check @replies or DMs. If I need to look at a search or list set up on TD desktop, then I use that.

PhotoGene
http://www.i-photogene.com/
* Not Twitter per se but iPhone – quick and easy edits before tweeting – see http://www.i-photogene.com/photogene/Tutorial.html

stats/monitoring/research :
TweetStats
http://tweetstats.com/
* great overview of account activity by key metrics
* see @barackobama (TS1, TS2)

TwitterCounter
http://twittercounter.com/
* show follower trends for most recent 3 month period (@massgovernor)

Trendistic
http://trendistic.com/
* see time trend for keywords (iPad)

Twapper Keeper (Steve talked about this in the AM session)
http://twapperkeeper.com/
* archive hashtag search

Tweetmeme
http://tweetmeme.com/
* broader than trending list

content :
TwitterFeed
Yes, I know it’s an RSS feed. sometimes that’s OK.

finding people :
We need more good directories like govtwit.com
