How To Monetize Your Tweets

Now that I am drinking the Twitter Kool-Aid, I am always down for new Twitter apps, clients, doo-dads, and whatzits. Most of them are kind of cool on the surface, and fun to play with for a minute or two, but only a small handful are truly worthwhile.

The one I found yesterday, on its own isn't too much to brag about as far as a general Twitter app goes. It does however have three noteworthy features that you Twitheads may find valuable.

The tool I found is a web-based tool called HootSuite. HootSuite does the following three things well:

  • Allows you to schedule future tweets
  • Allows you to manage multiple Twitter accounts in one convenient location
  • Allows you to monetize your tweets with Google Adsense
Yep! You read that last one correctly! HootSuite has their own URL shortening tool built in called When you post links through HootSuite on Twitter, they automatically shorten the URL with and at the top is a nice little Adsense ad that can potentially bring you in a little extra dough.

In the end, I think I will stick with Digsby for regular every day tweets, but if I need to share a URL, I think I will probably post the tweet from HootSuite. Why not right?

Know of a similar tool? I would really like to see something like this in a client. If you know of something like that I want to know! Hit me up in the comments!
