The 4 Best Twitter Tools to Grow & Automate Your Account

  When I first launched my blog and started creating social profiles for it, I scrambled to remember the password I set for the several Twitter accounts I’ve created over the years.   Seeing as I rarely frequented Twitter as a teen in high school or even in college, I failed at that attempt and quickly found myself creating another brand spanking new Twitter profile – yippee!
