topifyManaging new Twitter notifications and direct messages is a hassle that aggravates with Twitter’s interface. To match this you would need a tool that could revamp the new follow notifications and adding support for following back and relying to direct messages via email. How about managing your twitter followers by using email as your Twitter control center? Well, there’s a  Twitter app that enables you to manage your Twitter contacts via email. Topify, the app in question, is a multi-pronged approach that makes email your new Twitter manager. It not only enhances your new follower emails with additional information, but also enables email direct message replies.

This twitter power email service allows you to replace your dull email messages you receive from twitter everytime someone follows you. The twitter app modifies the default twitter email and enhances it to receive more information about your new followers. The best part of it is that you don’t need to visit your followers twitter page anymore to follow them. Interestingly, if you send an empty reply to the enhanced mail sent by Topify, you would be automatically following your new follower.

Not just these, Topify offers a feature that allows you to reply to the direct messages’ you receive by replying to the email. It is one of the most commendable features on a twitter email app that makes it count over other similar services like twimailer!

To be precise, Topify allows the following

  • Automatically follow new followers by sending an empty reply to the enhanced Topify mail
  • Reply to Direct Messages
  • Enhanced email notification whenever a new twitter user follows you
  • Easy to Block and Unfollow

What irks me is that Topify lacks Twitter authentication mechanism that implies you have to provide your login name and password.
