The #Twitter Channel Coming To A Cable Box Near You

April 12, 2011

After seeing this piece about C-SPAN scrolling Tweets, it doesn’t seem to far fetched that one day we will be able to tune our set top cable boxes to an overlay of channel specific Twitter hashtags to keep up with our favorite topics  in real time.

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.
