These days we are all looking for anything that can make our hectic lives a little easier. Wouldn’t it be nice if we could add a few minutes to our day sometimes? Well, with so many time saving ideas out there, we can make those minutes really add up. One way to do this is to use plugins with your WordPress blog or site. There are a ton of plugins that do pretty much everything from adding videos or photos to your blog, linking your blog to your social media accounts, membership sites and so much more.

Most of us have been here many times before, you log into your social media accounts to make a post or two and before you know it you have spent a couple of hours on what should have only taken a couple of minutes. You need some plugins to help save you time. Today I will talk about some of the great plugins that will post directly to your Twitter account, allowing you more time to grow your business.

  • Tweet This– A plugin that adds a Twitter icon to every post and page, so your readers can share your blog entries on their Twitter accounts with ease This is a simple plugin that will help drive traffic to your blog,
  • TweetSuite-a Twitter-WordPress integration plugin that includes server-side TweetBacks, ReTweet-This buttons, digg-like Tweet-This Button, automatic tweeting of new posts and some widgets.
  • The Twitter Updater- a WordPress plugin that automatically sends a Twitter status update to your Twitter account when you create, publish, or edit your WordPress post. You can specify the text for the updates, and also have the option to turn the auto update on/off for the different post actions in the admin panel. This plugin just took care of some of your tweeting for you without you having to do a thing.
  • Twitter Tools – This WordPress plugin creates integration between your WordPress blog and your Twitter account. Pull your tweets into your blog and create new tweets on blog posts and from within WordPress.
  • Twitter Feed – Posts your blog updates to your twitter account. Login to TwitterFeed using your OpenID, provide the URL for your blog RSS feed, and how often to post to Twitter.
  • TwitterDash – TwitterDash is a WordPress plugin that adds your friends timeline from Twitter into your dashboard.
  • Twitt Twoo – Twitt-Twoo is a simple little plugin that will allow you to update your Twitter status right from your blog’s sidebar. AJAX takes cares of the hard work, and means that your page doesn’t even have to reload, allowing for quick and easy status updates.
  • Tweet Tweet – Tweet Tweet is a plugin for WordPress that polls Twitter and archives your tweets and the tweets of those you follow so those insightful conversations you have at 1:00 am are never lost.
  • Tweet Roll – This widget shows your friends avatars on your blog/website and encourages more people to follow you. Color customization and localization options available.
  • Bird Feeder – Bird Feeder is a WordPress plug-in that simply tweets when you publish a post. It doesn’t do anything else.

These are just some of the ways that plugins can save you time and energy. Don’t know the first thing about plugins? Not to worry our VAs will be happy to help you! Happy Posting.
