Base (free) Features
- Schedule tweets— Plan, set & forget. SocialOomph will monitor the Twitter tweet stream and periodically email you a digest of the tweets that contain those keywords. You can also use this to track your @replies.
- Extended Twitter profiles — Promote yourself . Save and reuse drafts – Save hours of typing
- Save draft tweets, frequently used text snippets and URLs and reuse them in your scheduled tweets. Save a draft once and use it as a template for updates on Twitter and StatusNet accounts, plus other types of accounts for Professional users.
- Send DMs to new followers — Automate. Send a nice non-promotional DM to new followers that focus on them and your future interaction with them, or simply to thank them for choosing to follow you.
- Bit.ly URL shortening — Track those clicks. Add your bit.ly URL shortening account details to your SocialOomph profile, and SocialOomph will shorten your links with it so that you can track the clicks on all your links.
- Follow those who follow you — Automatically follow people who follow you and save a ton of time while your Friends list builds itself.
- Unfollow those who unfollow you — Automatically unfollow someone when they unfollow you if that is how you prefer to manage your Friends list.
- Vet new followers — Semi-automation. Even though you’ve selected to auto follow new followers, SocialOomph will interrupt the process for 72 hours and give you an opportunity to manually review new followers and decide if you want to follow, ignore, or block each new follower.
- View @Mentions & Retweets – Efficiency. With more than one Twitter or StatusNet account it can become a real chore to keep track of your @mentions and everyone who has retweeted your tweets.
- Purge your DM Inbox — Keep it tidy. You will probably agree that it’s a bit of a pain to manually delete DMs from your Inbox, especially since they accumulate so quickly. You can run a purge on your Inbox to delete everything, or DMs older than 7 days, or DMs older than 30 days (not available on StatusNet accounts because their API cannot delete DMs).
- Secure Twitter access — No password required. SocialOomph uses Twitter’s secure OAuth method to access your Twitter account. That means you never have to give SocialOomph your Twitter password.
- Respect StatusNet site limits — Some StatusNet site owners set update limits, such as a maximum of 20 updates every 10 minutes, per user account. Our system fully respects those limits and will not allow you to schedule tweets more frequently than what the site owner will allow.
