Ever wonder how many tweets per day some people on Twitter are producing? There is an app for that! (sorry, couldn’t help myself) TweetStats shows you the statistics on anyone on Twitter. You can see how many tweets per hour, per day, per month, as well as when they are tweeting and what applications they are using to tweet with. The graphs also show who they are retweeting as well.
All you have to do is put in their Twitter name to get the information. The app also lets you see the stats in a Word Cloud, and what hashtags are being used.
In addition, you can see what is trending on Twitter in real time, and what the day’s trends were. All in all, this is a very useful app.

If you are following more than 100 people on Twitter, you know how hard it is to keep track of who said what. The best application I have found for this is TweetDeck. TweetDeck is an Adobe AIR application (which means you have to download the AIR software onto your computer) that lets you see in table form at least 3 columns. The default columns are “Friends”, “Replies”, and “Direct Messages.” You can build your own column as a Group (the tab is at the top of the application). Fo example, my Group are the followers I am most interested in. I named the Group, and then selected the Twitter names that I wanted in the group. The program does the rest.
You can also change the colors of the application.
I highly recommend this desktop app for keeping up on what is happening day to day on Twitter.
