Tracking Twitter Keywords

There are hundreds of great tools within the Twitter ecosystem but one that I find particularly useful is TweetBeep, which sends you e-mail alerts each time someone mentions specific keywords. It’s a lot like what Google Alerts does for online keywords.

TweetBeep was developed by Michael Jensen, who also developed other Twitter applications such as LiveTwitting, which is used to live Twitter conferences, and TweetAnswers, which lets you use Twitter to get answers to questions.

Some other tools to monitor Twitter keywords include Monitorr, which lets you keep track of three keywords using an interface that looks a lot like TweetDeck; TweetScan, which is more like a search engine a la Summize, and TwitScoop, a search engine that also features hot trends what’s “buzzing right now”.
