It’s always interesting to me when seemingly unrelated things intersect. Last night I was reading up on some writer web sites and someone mentioned Tweetreach, a service that I’d never heard of. So I fired up an account and plugged in my name and the names of several friends. The free report is interesting but I wanted to see how the $20 paid report compares. To make good use of the money, I plugged in #boycottautismspeaks, a hashtag I knew to have had a lot of recent activity and which I was curious about. Wow – we reached a lot of people. I’m making the report available because some of you might be interested in that kind of analytics. Monthly pro accounts are expensive but individual reports are only $20 and they encourage you to share them so we always have the option to chip in a few bucks apiece if we want to track a future campaign. Of course, sharing this will increase my Tweetreach. 😉
Update 18 January, 2014: I discovered Tweetreach a bit to late to capture the December event in its entirety. In my second attempt, capturing the January 14th event, I discovered that in addition to the 7-day time limit, there’s also a 1500 Tweet limit which, by the time I ran the report, doesn’t capture the entire day. Next time I’ll run it very soon after the event ends. However, the data from the 14th may be useful just the same. That report is now online here:
Update 24 January 2014: Well, I ordered the report at 1am on the 24th but the 1500 Tweet limit only goes back 12 hours. On the one had it kinda sucks in that we didn’t capture the entire day. On the other hand, 1500 Tweets in 12 hours? That’s awesome for our community! It would be possible to purchase multiple reports but they would not provide a consolidated picture. Instead, I’m looking into prices for 24-hour snapshots with out the 1500 Tweet limit. More info as I know it. Watch @tdotrob on Twitter for announcements.
