It automatically shortens the tweets to fit into the 140 character limit, which is pretty awesome considering the time it saves us to re-read and do it ourselves. Thumbs up to a free app like EveryPost!

Well, we do not endorse or suggest any one tool since every user has different requirements and should decide on the tool which is right for them.

The above mentioned tools will help you to decide which one you need based on the kind of content you share and platform you use. Budget is also a very important factor to decide upon, here.

Eliminate the ones which are least likely to be useful and bingo!
