WordPress: When Will My WordPress Blogs Have Tweetmeme Built In?

October 24, 2009

Recently WordPress added a “Publicize” button to their blogs so publishers could Tweet their posts directly to their Twitter accounts.

Isn’t it now time for WordPress to add a “Socialize” button to their bloggers dashboards?

Self hosted WordPress publishers can add plugins like those from Tweetmeme to let their visitors Tweet blog links to the Twitter audience.

However, WordPress hosted blogs lack any type of plugin tools for bloggers who want to enable their visitors to share their discoveries via Tweets beyond the WordPress walls.

Adding a Tweetmeme feature to WordPress bloggers dashboards and in turn their blogs would surely have a network doubling effect on the WordPress.com audience.

Twitter Audience: Reaching 1,000 Twitter Followers

September 12, 2009

Today, my Twitter account briefly reached 1,000 Twitter Followers.

Having reached 1,000 Twitter “audience members” presents an obvious question: which is more valuable – a 1,000 person social media audience or 1,000 person search audience?

Twitter Analyzer: Twitter Audience Segmentation

August 3, 2009

According to its site, TwitterAnalyzer.com is the most advanced Twitter account analytics system in the world.

I am not sure how their claim can be confirmed, however their site does parse Twitter account data into segments I hadn’t yet seen.

Twitter Analyzer users can view an account by Tweets, Chats, Popularity, Reach, Subjects, HashTags, Links and Apps.

Twitter Analyzer Tweets

Twitter Analyzer Tweets

Tweets graph a Twitter account’s Tweet activity over a thirty day period.

Twitter Analyzer Reach

Twitter Analyzer reach charts the reach of a Twitter account daily over a thirty day period.

Twitter Analyzer Subjects

My favorite charts at Twitter Analyzer are the ones for Subjects and Hashtags.

Subjects produces a graph of the top ten subjects tweeted from an account in both descending order and via pie chart.

Twitter Analyzer Hashtags

Hashtags presents Twitter account hashtag data also in both a descending frequency order and by pie chart.

If you have someone you are following who has Tweeted a lot, Twitter Analyzer tools can provide data centric insight into which segment of the Twitter audience their messaging most likely resonates.

Twitter Research Via #Hashtags

August 1, 2009

Hashtags.org is a great tool for researching trends, tags and people Tweet data on Twitter.

Under Trends, searchers can investigate Twitter updates in four different time categories: Right Now, Today, This Week and This Month.

From a marketers perspective, longer term #Hashtag tweet activity revealed in This Week and This Month data shows which Tweets have sustained the most consistent share of voice on Twitter.

Sorting Trends by shorter time frames Right now and Today reveal the transitory nature of human attention.

Searching by Tags provides another rich source of Twitter data.

A hashtags search for Top tags produces a list of the most popular tags used on Twitter.

Although the data set collected by Twitter is nowhere near the size Google collects and then make available through it Adwords Keyword Suggestion Tool, Hashtags.org appears to provide a statistically relevant sample of Tweeted keywords occurring @Twitter.

I am looking forward to applying this new found data toward reaching more of the Twitter Audience.

The guide explains what Twitter is, how to get started using Twitter, common Twitter terms, Twitter best practices and some Twitter case studies.

With Twitter growing so rapidly while having problems engaging and retaining its audience, this guide should help explain and clarify Twitter’s unique value proposition to both new and old users alike.

Twitter Real Time Warp Search?

April 14, 2009

Although real time search is one of the many heralded utilities of Twitter, it seems the average consumer’s attention isn’t quite as focused in the present as Twitter’s search results are – at least at this particular moment in time.

According to Twitter’s trending topics: Easter is the most popular topic of conversation in the Twitterverse – this Tuesday two days after Easter Sunday.

If this trending topic result doesn’t illustrate the value of reaching Twitter’s audience, I don’t know what will.

Twitter Audience Segmentation and Real Time Inline Search

April 2, 2009

Twitter has begun testing real time inline search within some Twitter accounts.

From the Twitter blog:

Currently, a small subset of Twitter users are trying this new search feature in the sidebar of their Twitter home page. When you do a search, you don’t go to another page, the relevant tweets instantly show up where you’d expect them to—right on your home page where tweets love to be.

I have the new Twitter search box in my account and find its inline search results much more convenient and practical.

As Twitter accummulates user search data,  they will be able to parse the Twitter audience into segments which is a requisite for monetizing their ever increasing traffic.
