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 a 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.

Types of Twitter analytics reports by 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.

1. Twitter historical analytics

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:

  1. 7-day Twitter reports: Analyze up to 10,000 tweets from the past 7 days.
  2. 30-day reports: Analyze up to 35,000 tweets from the past 30 days starting today.
  3. Twitter historical reports: Analyze up to 140,000 old tweets from more than 30 days ago.

The limit of tweets for all the aforementioned reports can always be increased by purchasing extra tweets. For example, in order to analyze bitcoin on Twitter we will need tons of extra tweets as it is a very busy term. Anyway, the tweets limit can be upgraded by purchasing extra tweets.

2. Twitter real time analytics

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 these type of Twitter analysis.

If you have read some or our posts you will have discovered that creating reports is now easier than ever. The search box is always on the upper part of your screen.

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 access need to go to the dropdown menu and select the option “Live report”. Once there, we will to 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:

What is a real-time hashtag tracker?

A real-time hashtag tracker is a system for collecting tweets or publications immediately after they are published. It is also a reliable source for fetching data. A real-time hashtag tracker should be part of your daily routine. It is a vital source of information in the age of the internet.

You do not have to use a real-time hashtag tracker to just track your own hashtags. You can use it for whatever hashtag you find relevant to your brand, or you can even track topics that are trending. If there’s a hashtag out there that you can capitalize on because it relates to what you do, why not give yourself the ability to take advantage of it? The best way to take advantage is to be able to track it. Without tracking tools, you may miss it—and so then miss your opportunity to use it for the betterment of your brand.

Using a real-time hashtag tracker will improve your marketing strategy in several ways. Through tracking hashtags as they happen, you will be able to:

  1. Check up on data as it evolves
  2. React on time and with proper data in case of a crisis
  3. Analyze your campaign or event as it happens
  4. Compare your current data with old information
  5. Easily detect the most relevant content and the top accounts sharing it

Real time hashtag tracker for The Next Web Conference

The Next Web (TNW) was looking to develop a website. They needed some help, so they came to us at Tweet Binder. After taking the time to get to know one another better, as well as share ideas and knowledge from both sides, we developed a custom website that included different modules. The TNW team is known for being very innovative and creative, so we took the time to design an intuitive and attractive site that is 100% responsive. On this site, we made sure to include all of the statistics TNW was interested in displaying, as well as the most important rankings to reach out to their audience and encourage their participation in real-time. We also created two different layouts in order to speed up the stats’ display via Twitter or Instagram.

The last module included the most popular speakers according to the number of mentions. This module also proved to be popular in itself. The audience at the event was keen on getting their favorite speaker to the top of the leaderboard, so they were constantly tweeting to make sure that would happen. Any time the audience participates and interacts with your social media in such a way is a success, so it was great to see it happen—in real-time as it were.
