Create your own tweet counter and hashtag counter

Counting the number of tweets is one of the first things we must do when we start doing Twitter analytics. The number of tweets of a hashtag is an important metric. Not the only one, but it is key. Twitter includes under the name “tweet” the “original tweets” and the “retweets”:

  • Original tweets: they are the tweets that add content. It can be a reply, a text tweet, a link, a picture or a mention. They add new content, they are original.
  • Retweets: they are just repetitions of a tweet. Twitter says they are re-postings of a tweet. Retweets do not add anything new, just amplify the impact of a hashtag or message.

Every hashtag has its own goals. Depending on those goals you will want original tweets or retweets. Retweets are always welcome, of course. However, if your campaign is about adding content (pictures, contest, etc.) you will want more original tweets than retweets. Of course, there are always exceptions, if a famous celebrity sends an original tweet or just retweets, the number of retweets generally increases. There is even the chance to access all the Twitter data using Tweet Binder’s API.

Other Twitter statistics from a Twitter hashtag

The numbers around Twitter hashtags are many. When setting a tweets counter we must know that there are many pieces of information within a tweet that can be analyzed. In this post we specified how to count the number of tweets of a hashtag, however there are many other metrics we can track and that are very important such us:

  • Potential impressions or impacts of the hashtag
  • Potential reach of the hashtag
  • Devices used to tweet with the hashtag
  • Users rankings
  • Sentiment
  • Gender
  • Etc

You can see how many tweets per day a hashtag got using Tweet Binder, that’s easy. However, if you want to deeply analyze a hashtag on Twitter you must know many other metrics because just the number of tweets is not enough. Imagine that we are only counting the number of tweets of the hashtag of a campaign and then we create a brand new Twitter user and send out thousands of tweets, that will make our report look “pretty” with many tweets, but that won’t be correct.
