What is Twitter sentiment analysis?

Tweet sentiment analysis shows if the analyzed tweets have been positive, negative or neutral.

Imagine, you run a Twitter marketing campaign and you got 1,000 tweets. Twitter sentiment score will tell you whether the mood of tweets was positive, negative or neutral. In other words, you will understand whether users participating in a campaign liked it or not.

Alternatively, it is possible to analyse Twitter mentions of a brand to see whether they are positive or negative, or just neutral.

How is Twitter sentiment score calculated?

Tweet Binder hashtags analytics platform provides the Twitter sentiment amalysis.

You can type any mention, keyword, hashtag or cashtag in the search bar below. You will get a report with stats on all the tweets containing a term you put into the search box.

Thus, the aim of the Sentiment Score is to calculate how positive or negative an analysed report is in general. This is calculated by considering  a greater number of variables than just the number of positive and negative tweets. For Tweet Binder it is important to consider the number of Twitter impressions and users that have tweeted in a positive, negative or neutral way.

Therefore, the Sentiment Score takes into consideration, in general lines, the following variables:

  • Number of positive, negative or neutral tweets
  • Amount of users that have participated and the number of their followers
  • Number of positive, negative or neutral Twitter impressions

Tweet Binder Twitter sentiment analytics considers more users tweet in a positive way rather than just one as “more positive”. In other words, if 500 users have tweeted positively about our hashtag, it is better than if just 1 user sends 500 tweets. Same thing happens with negative tweets.

In addition, Tweet Binder considers the influence of an account, which is measured by the number of followers. Accounts with more followers have a greater impact on the Sentiment Score than accounts with a smaller number of followers. This way, if a user with tons of followers tweets in a positive way, it will have a greater impact on the Sentiment Score.

For example:

  • Positive tweet sent by a user with 10 followers = little impact
  • Positive tweet sent by a user with 30,000 followers = greater impact
