I don’t agree with using all the tools on the list. For example, I’m not a fan of the automatic post to Twitter plugins that create tweets from other sources like your blog or Facebook status updates, etc. because they tend to make your followers pay less attention to what you are saying (I think), but overall these are good tips to experiment with.
