Now that the cat is out of the bag about my next steps, I have a question that I want to bring up on my blog.
But first a few thoughts. I think Twitter is the most interesting consumer company of our time. I have met some great people, contacts, and eventual friends on Twitter (it’s also a dark-horse professional network). I think Twitter does a poor job of telling me more about the people who follow me. I know very little. I think it would be very interesting to find out more information about my followers. I personally have a long list of things that interest me in finding out (it was one of the reasons Michael and I built MVF way back when). But I’d like to hear from all of you.
What do you want to know about the people who follow you on Twitter? It could be anything from what country they are from to what industry they are in (some of this is covered in twitter ads analytics but not everyone has access to this). It could be to find out who RT’s you the most and who is your most engaged follower. Whatever interests you.
I can’t guarantee that the thing you want to know will be in the final product. We’ll definitely have people’s MVF’s plus a few tangential data points. But if it is something cool we might just knock it out and share it with you.
Hit me up in the comments section or email me at Ataub24@gmail.com.
I’ve been saying for months (to friends and family) that if someone built a consumer facing analytics platform for Twitter it would be a huge hit. People love statistics about themselves and the vanity around it.
It wouldn’t be a venture funded business, but it could be a good lifestyle business.
Well, Twitter has put out a version of personal analytics/statistics. You can find your own here: https://analytics.twitter.com
It tells you your timeline activity (i.e. replies, retweets, favorites, clicks), gender breakdown, location breakdown, who your followers also follow, and interests.
It’s pretty cool and hopefully it will continue to improve. Thanks Twitter!
Editor Note: You need to have used twitter ads at one point (I experienced with them earlier this year). So yea….
