Twitalyzer – Made Me Smile

I was reading this cool article about 8 Excellent Tools for Extracting Insights from Twitter Streams. I started first with Twitalyzer and tried it with three of my Twitter accounts @dorait @tektrends and @pylinks. @dorait has been around for a while, but tektrends and pylinks were started more recently.

I looked at my account analytics and burst out laughing. I seem to have pathetic influence and do pretty bad on all the metrics. The only redeeming feature seems to be that the signal to noise ratio is pretty decent. I think I need to get a life 🙂

Here are the images. If you want to try it yourself, just go to Twitalyzer and type your acccount name (or any one else’s)

  1. Ha! You and me both. 😉

    It’s sad that people are so fixated by numbers. Tools like Twitalyzer reinforce that. I find TweetStats and TwitterFriends much more interesting.

    I know for sure that you’re influencing me, and I’m quite certain that you’re influencing many others as well. At the end of the day, I hope that this — along with the learning you acquire from synthesizing your thinking — encourages you to continue to share!

  2. Eugene,
    Thanks. I smiled because Twitter or these tools have no way of finding out whom you really want to follow. But I am glad that they provide some interesting metrics. I was happier with the Signal/Noise ratio and generosity scores. I think I need to improve on the generosity one, quite a bit.
