Ten Handy Twitter Bots to Help You
For beginners, a ‘Twitter Bot’ is an automated, programmable software that can be used to carry out a variety of actions. A bot account can function like a normal account and can like, share, retweet, and post tweets based on the way it is programmed.
A Bot’s ability to follow and efficiently find and interact with the most relevant content makes it a valuable feature. There are millions of bots in Twitter. Twitter itself classifies bots as ‘Good Bots’ and ‘Bad Bots’. A lot of such ‘Good Bots’ can help you in using Twitter more efficiently. In this blog, we will introduce you to such very useful bots on Twitter,
Read Thread’s Easily (@threaderapp)
Due to the character limit on Twitter, a lot of us often share lengthy content with thread posts. While reading a thread, we find it a bit confusing in following the correct sequence of tweets.
To make reading a thread easy, you can use this ‘Thread Reader’ application. You can just mention the thread reader ‘@threaderapp’ under the thread with a ‘unroll’ keyword. Soon, you will see a link taking you to a ‘blog’ type of page with all the content of the thread.
Download Videos (@this_vid)
Twitter still does not have a direct download option to download video content from a tweet. So, if you want to download a video directly, you can simply mention the handle @this_vid and you will have a download link for the video in a quick time.
Color Black And White Images (@colorize_bot)
It may be an image you saw in someone’s tweet or an image you posted on Twitter. You can use the @colorize_bot and bring color to the image. All you have to do is to mention @colorize_bot and you will receive a color image of your black and white image. This bot uses AI to color your images.
Take Better Screenshots (@pikaso_me)
We all have the habit of clicking screenshots and sharing them as a post. This bot is of great use in such cases. You can mention this bot in the comments section of the tweet and you will have the screenshot in a link. You can also automate this bot based on your needs with a paid plan.
Find ‘Bad Bots’ And Fake News (@BotSentinel)
It is easy when a bot is identifiable. But, for promotion and other agendas, a lot of bots are used to impersonate real people. We would interact with them without knowing if it’s a real account or a bot account. This @BotSentinel spots such accounts and helps you filter those ‘Bad Bots’.
This bot is also designed in a way to spot fake news and inform. However, this bot is not the best at spotting fake news.
Find Free Games (@freegamefinding)
If you are a gamer, then this bot is for you. This bot regularly brings you updates on the famous games, offers, best deals, etc from the gaming world. This bot is integrated with similar other social media platforms too.
Find Quoted Replies With Ease (@quotedreplies)
Twitter does not have an option to see all the quoted replies of a tweet in one show. In fact, you will not be able to see the number of times a tweet is quoted like how you see the like and retweet numbers. Using the bot @quotedreplies, you can look at all the quoted tweets on a tweet in one go.
Use A Virtual Assistant (@DearAssistant)
Now is the age of Virtual Assistants and we all know that. Siri, Alexa, Google Assistant, etc have become a part of our daily activities. @DearAssistant is a similar Twitter bot. @DearAssistant will answer your questions on Twitter.
Get A Tweet Reminder (@remindme_ofthis)
There are times when you see a tweet and would want to revisit the tweet later. When we save such tweets, we at times forget to revisit them. This bot @remindme_ofthis will send you a reminder at the time you wish to see the tweet again. You can simply ask this bot to send a reminder after 10 hours and you will receive a reminder at the exact time mentioned.
Enjoy Interesting Archives From the Past (@wayback_exe)
