Tweetfull is more than just a tweet scheduling platform. Tweetfull uses an AI driven bot to engage with your potential audience on twitter. You can put in your areas of interests/hashtags and Tweetfull will try engage with the people talking on similar topics. It will then RT, Like, follow, unfollow or mention such users.

dlvr.it is an up and coming social media marketing automation tool. It integrates well with RSS feeds and delivers them on the social media platforms like Google Plus, Twitter, Facebook, Instagram etc. It has a good free version where you can try out 5 feeds and 3 platforms. The paid versions depend mainly on your team size.
dlvr.it is more or less a combination of tweet scheduling and feed posting platform. The platform can fit well into the freelancer and small companies requirements. We found the enterprise plan a bit too big for medium size company requirements and hope that the tool will work on making the proposition healthy for medium enterprises as well. All in a great tool for social media marketer’s kitty.
