The Top 7 Twitter Analytics Tools
We’ve compiled a list of our top seven favourite tools for analyzing and measuring progress on Twitter. We use these on a regular basis here at Miss Mediosa to learn which of our tweets are most popular, engaging and interesting to our followers.
1. Tweet Reach – This is a great tool to measure how far your tweet has traveled. Best if you’re interested in one or two particular tweets. Copy and paste a tweet that you’re most interested in, and Tweet Reach will let you know how many users the tweet was exposed to – including the people that it reached through re-tweets.
2. Tweet Effect – Use this resource to learn which of your tweets caused you to gain or lose followers. Tweet Effect shows you the history of your tweets and indicates where and when followers were lost. It’s a great way to learn which tweets are not that interesting, and which are so interesting that new users have decided to follow you!
3. Twitter Analyzer – A great analytics tools that basically gives you everything you need to know about your Twitter activities. We’re talking the top occupation groups of your followers, the number of followers in US vs. Canada vs. UK all shown in a follower density map, the number of unique users re-tweeting, the top subjects that you tweet about, your most frequently used hashtags, your followers growth rate. Lots of valuable information here! A good overall analytics tool.
4. Klout – Another great overall analytics tool for Twitter. Klout lets you know whether you’re a Connector, Persona, Climber or Casual twitter user, based on a ranking of your influence and audience size. It also lets you know who you influence and which twitter users may influence you. Key statistics include follower mention %, unique @ senders, @ mention count, follower/follow ratio, followed back %, unique retweeters and follower retweet %. It’s also a great place to monitor your postings, such as the number of links you’ve shared in the past 30 days, the % of tweets containing links, % of tweets containing @, and % of tweets that were questions. You can also see the average reply count per question. A really great resource!
5. Twitter Grader – Grader.com is a great resource for lots of online tools, including Website Grader, Facebook Grader and Press Release Grader. We use this site the most for their fantastic Website Grader, but their Twitter Grader is not bad either. Here you can find tips and suggestions for your Twitter account, see your Follower History, and even check a specific username to see if someone is following you. You receive a Twitter Grade out of 100 based on the power, reach and authority of your account. Not as many details and statistics as some of our other resources, but a good resource to check on once in a while to monitor your progress!
6. Twitalyzer – Twitalyzer gives you feedback on your Impact, Engagement, Influence, Generosity and Clout. Each score can be further broken down into more details. Although we don’t use it religiously, it’s a great tool to check out from time to time to see how your scores have changed.
7. Twinfluence – Twinfluence allows you to see your 2nd-order followers, velocity, social capital and centralization measures. A great tool if these measurements are something that’s important to you.
