5 free apps to help manage Twitter

Manually sifting through your followers to identify these users could take hours. That's why several sites have sprung up to help you take back control of your Twitter account. These sites scan your followers and generate a list identifying which ones haven't tweeted in a while so that you to remove them accordingly. Check out the top five picks for free sites that help you efficiently restore order to your account.

TweetSpinner

TweetSpinner offers a wealth of functionality. Its Direct Message inbox tool finds and archives messages older than seven days and searches your inbox for spam (something I wish Twitter would implement on its site). TweetSpinner's follower manager targets particular audiences you might be interested in following as well as followers you might wish to ditch. The service also offers a profile rotator and a tweet scheduler. Some of TweetSpinner's features can be customized, though customization may require a paid membership. To use TweetSpinner, you need to register with the site and allow it to access your Twitter account.

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

STYLISTIC Q572

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

STYLISTIC Q702

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
