Welcome to a new roundup of social media tools and services! This month, let me introduce you to:

Twitter is a fantastic platform. Unfortunately, the character limit can be a challenge. Tweets also have a short shelf life.
So, how do you optimize them to increase RTs and engagement? You include pictures with TwitShot. But that’s not all. You also focus on your headlines.
Retweeted More was created just for that. The service compares two Tweets on the same topic and tells you which one is likely to have the most impact.
Retweeted More is a research project, so you can submit feedback to improve the algorithm. And if you have a few minutes to spare, there is a quiz to test your own ability to distinguish better wording.
Blog Title Idea Generator
All you have to do is visit the website and click the “Generate Title Idea” button. For more ideas, take advantage of the custom Google Search box on the page.

I designed the graphic above in 20 seconds. Want my secret? Well, there is none. I used Pablo, Buffer’s latest tool.
Pablo comes with 130 inspirational quotes and background photos from Unsplash.com, as well as the ability to style your image to your heart’s content.
Not only can you add secondary text, a logo, or your own image. You can also blur or make your background black and white, and change your font type, size, or color.
When you are done, share the image on Twitter and Facebook, or save it to your computer for use anywhere you see fit.
Right now, it’s my favorite graphic design tool after Canva!
