Each one of these pages have been thought so that you, as a user, have all the information that you need.

Actually, by sorting the tweets by likes, for instance, you will get all the tweets ordered by number of likes. Therefore, you will be able to see the tweets with the highest performance.
Twitter users in the Excel sheet
We have just mentioned that a Tweet Binder Excel for Twitter contains a complete list of users that have participated.

Here you have all the information about the people who have joined the conversation with the hashtag, term or keyword that you are analyzing. The online report gives information about users, that’s right. Though these online rankings only give up to 10 users per ranking. If you just need a general overview, this information is enough. But if what you need is to have a deeper look into the users, the Excel sheet is your place. A Twitter marketing task to boost your numbers.
In fact, users are listed in the page named contributors and the information there displayed is huge. Let’s see the stats about each user and later we will see how to work with them:

- Economic value of the tweets sent by that user
So, as you can see, the info about users inside the Excel sheet is countless. With a correct use of Microsoft Excel, you can get really interesting and useful insights about the Twitter users in your analysis. And there are no limits, you can get an Excel report for large reports. For example, you could get an Excel for the Twitter activity of the MTV EMA awards. Or you can even create a report based on the most retweeted tweets of a hashtag.
