TwitterSheep

TwitterSheep | Social media kitbag | Scoop.it
More than a bit of fun, this nifty tool 'herds' your followers, checks out what they tweet about and then creates a word cloud of the key words.

Click on a word and then click on 'see your flock' to get to know more about your Twitter network. Great potential for contacts building and news gathering.

Pearltrees

Pearltrees | Social media kitbag | Scoop.it
Great curation tools for teaming up with people to organise, discover and share the stuff you like. (Different purpose than Scoop.it or Curated.by).

I like this because others can share material with me and, together, we can create peals of information for all to benefit from.

TweetDeck

TweetDeck | Social media kitbag | Scoop.it
Unlike Hootsuite, which is browser-based, you have to download TweetDeck. It's a great personal browser for staying in touch with what’s happening now, connecting you with your contacts across Twitter, Facebook, MySpace, LinkedIn and more. You can post to multiple sources.

Twitter Network Browser

Twitter Network Browser | Social media kitbag | Scoop.it
I find this tool a great help for finding new Twitter contacts. If I see an interesting tweet and want to find out more about the person who tweeted it I can put their name in the search box and see those in his/her network who recently tweeted or retweeted.

Click on that persons box and their network expands. And on it goes. Great for newsgathering.

HARO

HARO | Social media kitbag | Scoop.it
Not tried this myself, although I have just registered. This was suggested by someone on Quora.

From the site's blurb: For reporters "Tap into the largest source repository in the world with over 80,000 mainstreet and expert sources who will respond directly to your query on your terms. No more flipping through your rolodex; searching out-of-date databases, or being bothered by unsolicited sources with off-topic pitches. Submit your query and let HARO deliver the perfect sources right to your inbox. "

And for sources: "From The New York Times, to ABC News, to HuffingtonPost.com and everyone in between, nearly 30,000 members of the media have quoted HARO sources in their stories. Everyone’s an expert at something. Sharing your expertise may land you that big media opportunity you’ve been looking for."

Capture stuff as you find it, remember where it is so you can find it later and access it from anywhere. Great for collaboration on a story.

Quora

Quora | Social media kitbag | Scoop.it
This was meant to be the Q & A version of Wikipedia, but I have yet to figure out who will make sense of all the random answers. Still, you do get answers and it's great for collaborating. I have signed up and you can check my presence here - although I have only just started. http://www.quora.com/David-Brewer-1

It looks like Quora is in a phase of crossing the chasm between early adopters and mainstream. If they pass this phase successfully it will be great value for all of us.

A world of tweets

Great for seeing where the real-time Twitter hot spots are. You can see unexpected hot points generate as the tweets happend. From the site's blurb "Real-time tracking of twitter hotspots, or as the blurb says "visualization of geolocated tweets around the world"

HootSuite

HootSuite | Social media kitbag | Scoop.it
My preferred Twitter aggregator when on the move. From the site's blurb: "HootSuite - Online Social Media Dashboard. With HootSuite, you can monitor keywords, manage multiple Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn, Foursquare, Ping.fm and WordPress profiles, schedule messages, and measure your success."
