Monday Morning Cool Tool: Twchat

I love learning about new tools to make social media marketing more creative and effective, so I’ve decided to share some of my favourite tools with you at the start of each week. This week I’m recommending  Twitter chat manager – Twchat.

For those who may be unfamiliar with Twitter chats, they are a public chat, moderated by a host that happens live on Twitter. To filter all the conversations a specific hashtag is used. This hashtag allows you to follow the discussion and participate in it.  Most Twitter chats are recurring and focus on specific topics introduced by a moderator.  The chats usually last one hour and a transcript of tweets is often made available after the chat has ended.

Twitter chats move fast, which is why using a third-party tool is useful. Twchat allows you to create realtime chat rooms based on twitter hashtag.  TwChat monitors the hashtag and creates a simple, clean interface similar to a chatroom. You can see new messages, send your own, and have total control over the content you see.

Monday Morning Cool Tool: Giphy

I love learning about new tools to make social media marketing more creative and effective, so I’ve decided to share some of my favourite tools with you at the start of each week. This week I’m recommending Giphy  – a source of free animated gifs.

Why use Gifs?

Hootsuite recommends the use of Gifs “to spice up, excite and wake up your social audience.”

A little motion makes your content marketing more memorable. Though use sparingly, otherwise it distracts rather than enhances.
