Understanding Twitter analytics

In a world full of hashtags it is important for brands and marketing agencies to keep track of what is being said on Social Networks. Finding a good social media monitoring tool is key for this aim. Nowadays it is very easy to run a quick report on any hashtag, term or keyword. By running these Twitter analytics reports, any company can get insights on the terms that need to be tracked. There are different types of Twitter tracking: historical Twitter reports, which analyze old tweets; and real time Twitter analytics which analyze tweets in streaming.

Therefore, Twitter analytics can be obtained from any time and for any Twitter trending hashtag, term, keyword or account. In this post we will be focusing on how to analyze Twitter data in real time. However, before diving into this, let’s see the type of reports that our Social Media hashtag tracking tool, Tweet Binder, offers.

Twitter real time analytics with Tweet Binder

Besides offering Twitter monitoring reports, Tweet Binder also has Instagram hashtag analytics; but we talk about that on a different post. For now, let’s see which Twitter analytics reports Tweet Binder has. Historical Twitter analytics are for those hashtags or data that need to be tracked backwards. This means that if we need to track a term, keyword or account from today until some days, months or years ago; we will need Twitter historical data. It is very useful to compare data. For example, if we have data from the Oscars 2019, with a 2018 Oscar Twitter historical report we can compare stats and data. There are different reports which analyze tweets from the past.

However, if we have just launched a campaign on Twitter, then what we need is to get Twitter real time data. This is the case when live Twitter analytics come in handy. But not only for campaigns but also for events. For example, to tweet and share stats as they go at an event.  In fact, by starting a real time Twitter analytics report we will be able to check stats as tweets are being published. This way, it is easier to react to all the Twitter buzz. Let’s have a deeper look at this type of Twitter analysis.

The live reports collects all the information and displays it in the report you have created. This is done at the exact moment that the content is published on Twitter. What this means is that the report is constantly being updated and the content is added in real time. It’s easy to understand, isn’t it? The best of it is being able to see the statistics anytime. We have already said that the report is updated every now and then. That is why, every time we open the stats tab, all the rankings, metrics and data from Twitter will be updated.

Learning to track hashtags in real time is a very important duty for community managers and social media managers. Nowadays, every campaign is associated with a hashtag on Twitter where users and clients comment about the product, the image or whatever aspect of the campaign they want. We need to have immediate access to a dashboard or report in order for it to throw some light on what’s going on with our campaign or event.

Tracking Twitter in real time is really useful for campaigns because it will let you execute smarter and quicker decisions according to its evolution. Also, as every Tweet Binder report, these stats can be exported to an Excel and PDF document. You can ask for this document at any moment of the campaign. This way, you can follow the evolution of what you are tracking. By being a Pro User, you can create the report by yourself following a few simple steps. However, if you want a single report, you can purchase it straight from Tweet Binder’s website.

If Twitter is about something it is about what’s happening now. Here at Tweet Binder we work hard to help you analyze and create reports for all the tweets shared regarding a hashtag, a topic or a trend. Real time tracking is really easy with our services for reporting and also for displaying content on screens or websites.

So, what about “now”? It’s important to know what was tweeted about a campaign or event that took place a while ago. Nowadays, the present is also determinant. That’s why we offer the option to collect the tweets and data in real time too. We offer complete solutions to display the tweets and data pretty amazingly.

How to create a real time Twitter analytics report

Creating a real time Twitter report is very easy. You only have to go to the search box in order to create your live reports. Actually, to get the Twitter real time analytics report you just need to select the option “Live Campaign”. At the Advanced search tab you can introduce the settings of your report such as the starting and ending dates, the words that must and must not appear… Narrowing down your search is important in order to get the exact data from Twitter that you need. Therefore once you’ve done this, you will be taken to the payment page and, after introducing you card details your report will start.

If you have purchased the real time report, welcome to Tweet Binder. Welcome to a world full of statistics and Twitter data. The live report will include all the information that you need to analyze and evaluate your Twitter chats or events. Later we will go deeper into the stats included but now we will give a quick overview. First of all, you will find all the main stats. Total number of tweets, users, Twitter impressions and tweetreach, followers per contributor and tweets per contributor. Besides, you will be able to play with the activity chart. You can adjust the period of time to figure out the highlights of the Twitter chat. If you adjust the timeline, the types of tweets will be updated as well.

Finally, you will receive extra information like the sources, the volume of followers per user, images, transcripts… And all of this will also appear in the Excel and PDF document. These Excel documents can be used as Twitter follower trackers. We say so because each Excel sheet comes with a list of users and the number of followers they have. This way, you can compare several Excel reports to see if the number of followers of an account has increased or decreased.

On the other hand, if you are a Tweet Binder PRO plan owner your plan already includes live Twitter reports. That’s great, isn’t it? That’s why, in your case, we can skip one step. You don’t have to pay for your new report. Having them included in your plan enables you to create them in a very easy and fast way. The process is the same as if you were a free user; you enter the details and create the report. After creating it, all the content will start entering and being analyzed. Your report will be finished as soon as there’s no more activity around the hashtag or the time limit is over. You can also stop the collection whenever you need to.

Another way of activating a real time when you are owner of a PRO plan is by setting the streaming for a report that already exists. So, for example, if you have created a 7-day report for a hashtag and you want that report to continue being active, you just need to click on the “Start Streaming” button that is in the upper right corner of the report.

Real time Twitter stats

The most important thing to track a campaign or event in real time is knowing what to track. If we want to know everything about our campaign or event on Twitter we will need to analyze more than just the hashtag. Let’s imagine that the hashtag we want to track is #MyEvent2019 but we also have a Twitter account for the event called @MyEventRocks and some users might mention the account but not the hashtag. Also, some users will user #MyEvent19 instead of the official hashtag #MyEvent2019, so we’d need to track in real time that hashtag as well.

The query we will need to create and track will be: #MyEvent2019 OR @MyEventRocks OR #MyEvent19. To do that we need to go to the dropdown menu and select the option “Live report”. Once there, we will type the hashtags that we need to track in the option “Tweets CAN contain ANY of these words”. After typing each term we can either hit enter or click in the “add term” button. So, after doing this, our Twitter advanced search tab will look like this:
