I came across a new service last week called Tweepler, which is run out of Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada and is an easy way to organize your Twitter followers.
We know people love Twitter, they love to follow and be followed – but the process of actually sorting these new followers becomes a job in itself. Tweepler fixes this issue by providing a much more simplistic and enjoyable “befriending” experience.

“Tweepler is a HUGE time saver for me. I can quickly and intuitively go through who is following me, and decide if I want to follow them back or not. It keeps my Following list clean (I don’t follow everyone who follows me, with good reason) and I don’t miss people who I should be in a conversation with!”
I decided to give it a try for myself and see who was following me, and then decide whether I wanted to follow them back, or ignore them. I try to follow as many people as I can, but sometimes it gets overwhelming to keep up with updates because there are so many to sort through.
Watch the video below for a better look inside of Tweepler.
One concern I saw people had this week was the fact that the site asks for your Twitter username and password. There is no need to worry. The site does not store this information, but requires it to retrieve a list of your followers to assist you in sorting them.
Here’s a look at the recommendations Tweepler gave me once I logged in.
The list of people in the middle column are those that are following me that I haven’t followed back yet. I can either put them into the left column and follow them, or ignore them. Ignoring them doesn’t mean that they will be blocked, it just removes them from the column to allow other unprocessed followers to show up.
I think it’s a pretty neat service. But I’m having a hard time keeping track of all the third party Twitter apps, websites, add-ons etc. that are coming out. I almost need to hire a Twitter secretary or something.
