How to create binders: The way to classify Twitter information
As you may already know, Tweet Binder allows you to classify Twitter information obtained after tracking a hashtag. Although some keywords’ reports aren’t very big, other give us tons of information. This information needs to be organized in order to have a tidy and clean report. This will allow us to work easily and to find the information in a quick way. How do we classify all our tweets? Very simple! We just have to create binders. Our social media analytics tool is here to help!
What is a binder?
We can describe a binder as a folder. Imagine you’re working in an office and each day you are given thousands of papers. The best way to organize them is to get different folders where you can gather all the similar documents. All the invoices will be placed together, for example. So, in conclusion, this is how a binder works.
To create binders is really easy. You just have to enter the Classify panel inside your report. There you can create binders. You will find some suggested binders, they correspond to the accounts or hashtags that have been used the most at our search. They may be useful or not, that is why you can create your own binders instead.
Create your own binders
Once you are at the Classify panel you are going to find a button named “Create binder“. Once you click on it a new panel opens up. There you can choose how you name your binder and the terms or hashtags you want your binder to include. Don’t worry if after creating a binder you want to make changes. You can edit a binder anytime and the binder will actualize automatically.
Choosing what information appears on each binder is really helpful while working with your report’s data. It is a way to classify Twitter information. You can classify it by user, by term, by keyword or however you want. This is one of the best parts of the Classify panel, because it’s the perfect way to avoid disorganized information.
What we find inside a binder

If a binder called @NationalGeographic appears to have 1,415 tweets we’ll find out their type by entering the binder. 425 of them are original tweets whereas 990 are retweets. We can also check how many of them are replies, how many contain links/images, how many contributors used the term or how many tweets just contain text. It is really useful, isn’t it?
