Handy resources

twitter

twellow

Twellow is a directory of public Twitter accounts, with hundreds of categories and search features to help you find people who matter in certain sectors. It’s slightly hard to navigate, but if you give it go you’ll see its actually quite a powerful resource.

hashtagrify

If you’re looking to see what hashtags corresponding to certain topics are the most widely used, check out this website (I’ve hyperlinked the image). Hashtagify Me is a site that allows you to search for a hashtag, then displays all hashtags similar to that one, alongside their popularity. Brilliant for looking at which conversations are carry the most followers and for Twitter campaigns.

followerwonk

I found Follower Wonk  earlier this week and excitedly shared this discovery with my pod. Their reaction was muted. Not to be dissuaded, I went to the next pod in the hopes of raising greater interest. Alas, I was met with a similarly, apathetic response. A pox on them, both.

Consider followerwonk your go-to when you need to perform a deep dive analysis of Twitter accounts, the people they follow and their followers. I really like this site for several reasons:

  • You can search Twitter for people based on topics (i.e. Alzheimer’s, cancer etc) and grade them based on their social influence (Klout)
  • You can also analyse Twitter accounts of people and work out

o   When they post

o   Who they follow

o   What times their followers are active

o   What time the people they follow are active

o   How influential their followers are

o   How influential the people they follow are
