I’m always looking for new ways to measure my social media response, so I was excited when I heard that Twitter had “quietly” opened up analytics to the public. The tool is a subset of the Twitter Ad Dashboard. I’m not a Twitter advertiser but I was able to log-in and access some of my data.
It’s hard to read, I know. I’ll have some close-ups in a minute.
At the top is a timeline showing Mentions, Follows and UnFollows. What I got was a section of data from May 14 through June 11. You can’t change this. It’s just a representative piece of the pie. I had 94 mentions in that time period. Since I have nothing to compare it to, I’d say that’s a nice number. I also picked up 108 follows. But I lost 46 people. That surprised me. Not that I think I’m so wonderful that no one ever leaves me, but it was a big reality check to see that I lose several followers on most days.
