Twitterfeed recently announced that they would be closing their doors as of October 31, 2016.
If you’re not familiar with Twitterfeed, it is a utility (or tool) used to curate content via RSS feed to social media platforms (Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, and App.net).
When I heard the announcement, I was surprised but not too worried because I am already using three (3) other tools to help me do the same job that Twitterfeed was.
3 Awesome Tools to Autofeed Content to Social Media
You knew I couldn’t let you go with just “Twitterfeed closing”, right? I’m here to provide a few awesome alternatives to Twitterfeed!
I was introduced to Dlvr.it by one of my techy blogging friends and haven’t turned back since. I love this tool! They have a Free and a Premium service. Both of which I have used and highly recommend.
Dlvr.it is easy to configure! Check out the Tutorial to see just how simple it is! I think even a Caveman could do it. 😉
I’ve been using Dlvr.it for over a year now and really love how it works.
Did I mention there is a Chrome Extension for easy sharing of content to your Dlvr.it account? Let me not forget this awesome Stats or Analytical Results!
But please, don’t take it from me. Head on over to Dlvr.it, Sign Up for Free, and give it a test drive!
Buffer is another great tool that most of you are probably familiar with. Like Dlvr.it, there is a Free Plan, Premium Plan, and Business Plan. I have used both Free and Premium and do recommend Buffer.
The only issue I ever had with Buffer is that one certain social media networks and specific posts, it would post the image and not the link. I think my good friend, Adrian Jock, pointed that issue out to me over a year or so ago. I still don’t know what was causing the issue other than the fact I was scheduling via my smartphone.
However, like Dlvr.it, you can add RSS feeds and share posts to it directly via a Chrome Extension.
I believe Buffer may be a more loved tool than Hootsuite, but I could be wrong. I hear good things about both tools and use them myself.
Lastly, Hootsuite is another great tool for sharing, scheduling, and autosharing RSS feeds. A Free or Premium plan is available depending on your needs. I found the Premium Plan had awesome filler content that you could schedule. This is good if you want to increase your tweet count, as well as, share other relevant content.
Like Dlvr.it and Buffer, there is a Chrome Extension called Hootlet which makes it easy to share other content to your Hootsuite social media networks for immediate share or scheduling.
There are others
Don’t get me wrong, there are a few other awesome tools out there that do about the same or more. However, I only like to recommend products that I have used or am currently using. What good would it do to recommend a product that I’ve never tried?
Yeah, that could be a reputation breaker, right?
So, there you have it. Twitterfeed will disappear with the ghosts and goblins on October 31, 2016. Will you keep it’s doors closed for eternity? Or will it be reincarnated as some massive Twitterfeed on roids?
Whatever happens, at least you still have a few more days to test drive some new scheduling tools and get your accounts set up.
What do you think?
Are you a Twitterfeed user? If so, how did you take the news? Were you already using other tools or are you anxiously searching for new ones? I’d love to hear from you!
