There’s a large number of Twitter related services out there. Some cater towards the “power user”, others are just a great way to keep track of statistics relating to your Twitter account. At CASE we’ve been using Twitter in order to be involved in various conferences and events as well as communicating interesting bits and pieces to our members. The links below are some Twitter related web service we find interesting and or useful:
Twitalyzer: This website examines your Twitter account and then gives you scores in the following categories: Influence, Signal, Generosity, Velocity and Clout. These are measured by how many people follow you, how many times you re tweet, how frequently people are choosing to follow you and so on. The site makes recommendations on how you should improve your scores and gives you a whole stack of nice graphs to visualise the whole thing. This site is a must if you think your Twitter campaign is important. Great for stats!
Qwitter: This site offers a service whereby you’re notified when someone stops following you on Twitter, and shows you what your last tweet was before they canceled. This would be a very valuable tool for someone dealing with controversial material – you can effectively see visualise people turning their back on you on the Twitterscape! Simple, yet effective.
Whatthetrend: This site shows you the emerging trends on Twitter and allows users to post detailed descriptions on what those trends are, and why they’re trending. Great for seeing what’s popular and what people think of it. This is also a good place to keep an eye out for upcoming spam and scams.
ChirpCity: This is a handy website that searches for and then collates tweets by city. This means you can keep an eye on what’s emerging in your area even before it trends.
