10 Awesome Twitter Analytics and Visualization Tools

Share:

twitter-analytics-and-visualization-tools

After researching over a thousand Twitter Tools for the Twitter Tools Book I came across many Twitter analytics and visualization tools.  These Twitter tools were designed to add value by presenting a different way to visualize or analyze your tweets, the people in your network, and the tweets from the people in your network.

Many tools tried to add value and failed.  At least they tried.

The following tools, however, stand out in my mind as exceptional or entertaining and I recommend you check them out if you want to analyze and visualize your activity on Twitter.

1. The Archivist

The Archivist was built by Mix Online, an opinionated group of designers and developers at Microsoft.

Some of the cool features of this tool include:

  • Top Users
  • Top Words
  • Top URLs
  • Tweet vs. Retweet Ratio
  • Sources (Tools) Tweets are sent with

2. SocialBro

SocialBro is a powerful platform that enables you to analyze and visualize your network in a variety of ways.

In addition to analysis SocialBro also enables you to grow your network and schedule tweets for Hootsuite or Buffer directly within their platform.

Here is a snapshot of their homepage:

Some of their other features include:

  • Explore Your Twitter Community
  • Determine the Best Time to Tweet
  • Identify Influencers
  • Target Your Audience with Precision
  • Discover and Easily Follow Targeted Twitter Users
  • …and more!

3. MentionMap

MentionMap is a cool network exploring tool.  The interactive nature of this tool is very neat, although sometimes awkward to navigate.  Test it out for yourself with the embed below.

4. Twitonomy

Twitonomy is a powerful Twitter anayltics platform that I discovered after it’s founder @MattFyot reached out to me on Twitter.

This free service is actually very robust, and I am impressed with all of the different methods of analysis it offers.

To give you a better idea here is a screen capture of my Twitonomy profile:

5. Twenty Feet

Twenty Feet is a powerful analytics platform that tracks and graphs stats like Twitter mentions, followers, retweets, and more.

Twenty feet also integrates with other services like Facebook, bitly, Google Analytics, YouTube, and more.

You can track your Twitter and Facebook with Twenty Feet for free, and if you want to track other services beyond these they have paid packages as well and offer a free 30 day trial.

6. Twitter Counter

Twitter Counter is  a way to visualize and track the growth of your own followers, and even compare your growth to the growth of other users.

Below is a graph they generated showing my follower growth during the last month.

7. Visible Tweets

Visible Tweets is a way to view tweets based on keyword or username.

This Twitter visualization Tool is basically a screen saver featuring your tweets.

Here is a video I recorded with a quick demo of this tool.

8. Tweetstats

Tweetstats is, you guessed it, statistics for Twitter. And robust statistics at that. Check this tool out for a glimpse into your tweeting style and tendancies.

9. Twistori

Twistori is an elegant way to view a scrolling stream of tweet containing the emotive words: I love, I hate, I think, I believe, I feel, and I wish.

This is a pretty interesting way to get a feel for the pulse of Twitter.

TweepsMap is a cool tool that shows you where your followers are in the world.

With this tool you can map the effectiveness and distribution of your following.

Below you can see a screen capture of the map TweepsMap generated of my following, which has the greatest concentration in the US and Canada, but is also widely distributed throughout the world.

Bonus Analysis Tools

Portwiture

Portwiture is definitely one of the more unique visual Twitter apps that you’ll find. Rather than tag clouds or graphs, Portwiture allows you to visualize your tweets in photographs.

Foller.me

Foller.me is a cool free Twitter analytics tool that enables you to quickly analyze important stats about any Twitter user.

My favorite features of this tool are the topics, hashtags, and mentions analysis.

Other cool features of foller.me include the times of day you usually tweet, the breakdown of your last 100 tweets and more!

Sounds like you should be deploying a Learning Management System on Salesforce and using its Chatter (perhaps with a Twitter integration app in the mix). I don't works for SF, just a satisfied customer.

I work on similar online service called FollowCheck.com. Except the base un/followers managing it provides features for tracking and visualization of the base metrics, such as F/F ratio, potential reach, unfollowers, etc.

Another interesting tool for twitter hashtags is Hashtagify.me. There is a free hashtag explorer, and the professional version (Hashtag Intelligence) is very interesting for those who want to follow a specific hashtag campaign. It is easy to check competitors, influencers and improve your results on twitter.

Thank you so much for taking the time to share ALL that information! Although my passion is being a physical therapist, I do "play" in the online world. LOVED, LOVED Twitonomy! I was looking for something that could capture what my followers liked - retweets in particular. Now I know and I can tweet better! Thanks!

Good post and good tools! .. A good service to monitor a Twitter hashtag is http://www.Tweet-Tag.com. You can monitor your hashtag and get data and statistics in real-time about participation, tweets and the audience. Also, you can see the words most used. And finally, keep and consult the monitoring when completed. Thanks.

Thanks for the comprehensive list. I am interested in an app that shows where in the world the people I am following come from. I want to use this to see how varied my own thinking might be and where I might want to explore further, especially you follow people 'not like me'. Any thoughts?

I'd vote for #4, Twitonomy, as Number ONE because it does much of what the others do in one tool that works beautifully!
