Finding Twitter Trending Topics
When you log into Twitter's website, you will find a Trending Topics area in your right-hand sidebar. This allows you to see what the most popular topics of discussion are in your area, allowing you to quickly jump into conversation with others.
Hashtags.org is a searchable directory that allows you to track the most popular hashtag chats on Twitter, and search to see if your desired topic is being discussed by anyone else.
Third-party applications such as HootSuite allow you to perform a search of specific hashtags and save the searches so you can receive notification anytime anyone discusses the topic in question.
Scheduling your tweets
Keeping a consistent tweeting schedule can take up a lot of time. Luckily, there are many websites and tools you can use to pre-schedule your tweets.
SocialOomph: offers an entire suite of social networking tools, but it also allows you to add multiple Twitter accounts and preschedule tweets to appear within a few hours, days or even months in advance. With SocialOomph Professional, you can schedule recurring updates, direct messages and replies, or create recurring tweets with alternate text so your updates are each new, fresh and inviting while still focusing on the topic you choose
Hootsuite Publisher also allows Pro and Enterprise users to preschedule tweets on specific days and hours and through your various Twitter accounts. Their easy drag-and-drop calendar view makes it easy to change the dates your pre-scheduled tweets will appear to your followers.
