    I really like Pluggio (http://plugg.io) – it’s got some really slick tools that help build and a manage a community, particularly the Friend Finder, a really cool “drip feed” way of setting up a bunch of tweets to get posted over a period of time, and an integrated RSS reader to track news / blog posts and tweet them with one click.

    It’s just a huge time-saver.
