10 Free Twitter Tools for Tweeting Teachers

By Jessica Sanders

If you love Twitter, you’ve come to the place. This list of free tools will help you connect with more educators, organize Twitter chats and much more—and don’t forget to tweet this list to your tweeps!


Twitter chats are the best way to get expert advice and tips from fellow teachers specific to a certain topic. Use this tool to follow your favorite chats and save Tweets that you want to return to later.


Uncover trending accounts, hashtags, and topics in any location in the United States. Use this tool to see what’s going on in your area and connect with other educators.

Chat Salad

Not sure which chats are happening when you’re free to participate? You’ll find a long list of current chats for the next 3 to 4 days on this website. Click on the name of the chat to see what it’s about and who’s hosting it.


If you frequently host Twitter chat, this tool will help you keep everything organized. Get insights on your chat community, replay your chats in real-time, and create a community with audio and visual components.

The Latest

If you want to read through a collection of the day’s biggest tweets, this is the place to look. A short list of 10 wraps up the day, with a variety of topics covered from politics to social media news.

Twitter Email Notifications

This awesome tool is built into the Twitter platform. After adding your preferences, specifying what you want to know every day, you’ll receive a daily email of the top tweets that fall within your preferences. Get there: Log in > settings > Email Notifications.


If you’re new to Twitter, use this tool to find the best people to follow based on keyword. Linkreaser returns with a selection of tweets and influencers for that particular subject.


Instead of searching hashtags in Twitter, just to get a hard-to-scan list, use #tagboard instead. This tool aggregates top tweets for that hashtag into a “mood board-style” layout.


If your school Tweets, suggest using GroupTweet, which allows multiple people to manage one account without having to share passwords.


Live tweet video of student presentations, a lesson you’re giving and more with this simple app. Be sure to get parent permission if you’re tweeting video of students.
