Tweet Binder is much more than a hashtag analytics tool. It allows to analyze any hashtag, term or keyword you need on Twitter. You can track a hashtag going forward with our real time hashtag reports or you can go backwards with our historical reports with no date limit. That’s right, with Tweet Binder you can track any tweet no matter when it was sent. But sometimes you have tons of information that you need to classify. With our Twitter analytics tool that won’t be a problem anymore, you can create binders and start classifying your Twitter data.

Before starting… What is a binder?

A binder is very similar to a folder. They work the same way. At home (if we are organized enough 😉 ) we use folders to group the invoices, for example. We group them per year, per month or per week. And we all group things differently; using our own criteria in order to make it easier to access and use all the documents. It’s easy to understand, isn’t it?

In fact, a binder is like tiny boxes that you create inside a report (the big box) to sort all the report’s info.

So, that is how binders work. They are a way of classifying all the information inside our Twitter report and to make the most out of it. In this post you will learn how to create binders and how to make the most out of your Twitter report.

This binder feature allows us to create amazing hashtag battles for, for example, football matches. You can create almost anything you can imagine. If your client is a TV channel that wants to promote a TV serie, you can throw an online contest between the serie’s characters to see which one is the audience’s favorite. That also works for events and speakers. Analyzing a live event is easy with Tweet Binder. In addition, thanks to binders it is also possible to check real time Twitter data about the mentions the speakers receive as they participate at the event.

How to create binders: Suggested binders

In the Classify panel we will be given the option of using suggested binders. What are these? Very simple. They are terms (hashtags, keywords, accounts…) that have frequently appeared in our report. That is why the tool sees them as useful terms. And trust us, most of the times they are useful. In order to use this terms as binders we just have to put the cursor on the three dots which appear next to the term and click on the option “Create binder”. And, if the suggested binder wasn’t useful we can click the “Decline” option and a new one will appear (there will always be 10 different suggested binders).

How to create binders: Creating a new one

To create binders which are not suggested we will have to click the “New binder” button. Once we have done this, a panel automatically opens. There, we will have to define the criteria our binder will follow. These are the steps to follow in order to create a binder from scratch:

  1. While we are on the statistics page, we have to select on the “Classify” option
  2. Then, we have click the “New binder” yellow button
  3. After that, we have to give our new binder a name.
  4. Edit the binder. You can create or edit binders anytime you need. You have to complete the gaps with the name and the terms or hashtags you want to include on it. What does this mean? This means that we can create, for example, a binder called “Tweet Binder” and make it include those tweets sent by @TweetBinder.

  5. Show your binders in the final report. All the binders’ stats will be shown in your advanced report.

As we can see in the image above it is possible to add tweets which include a term or hashtag, which include Twitter accounts or which include both. In conclusion, you can do whatever you want by managing your report as needed.

What criteria should I use to create binders inside my Twitter report?

There is not a defined criteria. So, don’t worry. Each Twitter report, each user and each campaign have their own needs. You will be able to organize the content by users, by keywords or however you can imagine. This is one of the best parts of our reports, because they don’t just allow us to obtain information but they give us the chance to manage them as wanted. You can discover more about the Classify panel and how to use it in this post. But, today, we are going to be talking about how to create binders.
