Ultimate Twitter Tools and resources

Twitter, the micro-blogging platform that has taken the Internet by storm, has so much to offer the online entrepreneur or personal user, yet is misunderstood by many people. Twitter not only allows you to tell the world “what I am doing right now” via its web interface, but can also be integrated and enhanced by hundreds of tools and add ons. These additions allow you to not only make your Twitter page more appealing to your visitors, but can also give you the opportunity to update and add content to your account automatically, without ever actually having to visit Twitter at all.

Did you know that 50% of all Twitter users never return to Twitter after 30 days? Some people simply never find a use for Twitter in their individual or business model, but several actually never return for one reason only, they never have to. Many people continue to use the services offered by the Twitter API (application program interface) through add on devices and programming structures that can be found elsewhere.

With 50% of visitors still using your original Twitter account interface to view your Twitter content, it is still a good idea to spruce up the look and feel of your profile and account page. So, Before I go into the many ways that you can use Twitter without actually visiting Twitter itself, I will tell you of the many ways to make your original Twitter profile much more appealing for yourself and your visitors.

Twitter Backgrounds

One of the easiest ways to add a little pizzazz to your Twitter page is to add your own customized background. Backgrounds can be downloaded from the URLs below, and if you need more customization. Twitter backgrounds can easily be edited using the open source graphical tool, GIMP (graphical image manipulation program) or even search images.google.com (please check copyright) and modify for your own use.
