X/Twitter is still the best social media platform in 2023. This is because of several reasons, including the availability of blue checkmarks to everyone and the open algorithm, just to mention a few.
But using the X/Twitter client alone isn’t enough to tap into the full potential of X/Twitter. To get the most out of X/Twitter, you have to use third-party X/Twitter tools to make your efforts more effective.
X/Twitter tools have gained a lot of popularity over the years and there was a tool for almost everything. A tool for welcome DM messages, AutoDMs, and A/B testing your profile, you mention it.
But since Elon announced the new API pricing plan, most of these tools went out of business as they couldn’t pay the API price. Many of people’s favorite X/Twitter tools stopped their services.

X/Twitter tools for content creation

The BlackMagic editor is better than the native X/Twitter app. The UI is better and on top of that you get X/Twitter inspirations and you get to explore other people’s best tweets when you visit their profile.
