CoTweet Standard, which is used by a lot of companies to manage Twitter for teams, is being withdrawn on February 15th
From then on CoTweet will only be offered as a paid service under a new name “SocialEngage”
There aren’t much details about SocialEngage on the CoTweet / Exact Target site unfortunately, nor is there any information on pricing. It looks like they’re adding support for tracking Facebook, but without knowing pricing etc., it’s really hard to see if this is going to end up costing companies a lot more than they’ll gain or not.
Their Enterprise product “Cotweet Enterprise” may have been very powerful, but it also came at a very high price.
So are there any viable alternatives?
If you want an easy and free way to allow multiple team members to Tweet from a single Twitter account, you should definitely give http://www.GroupTweet.com a spin. You can add an unlimited number of team members to your account for free. Plus team members can Tweet from any Twitter client each of them prefers, directly from their personal accounts.
Its also great because you can either highlight the different voices or your organization or keep them private so it appears their is just one person doing all the Tweeting.
The main premium feature we offer is Message Moderation and its only $4.99/month. If you don’t need moderation, its entirely free!
