Sourcing and interrogating Twitter Data they regularly work with clients (large and small) to provide answers to questions that they have about how sectors and competitors are using Twitter.

What does BirdSong Analytics offer the social media practitioner over and above Twitter’s own data?

When you register with Twitter and turn on the analytics for your account, you will be able to access some useful data about it and how your tweets resonate with your audience.

For example, you will be able to look at up to your last 3,200 tweets and

  • Compare your Tweet activity and followers and see how they trend over time.
  • Click on any Tweet to get a detailed view of the number of Retweets, replies, likes, follows or clicks it receives
  • Get detailed insights into who your audience is, especially those who engage with your Tweets
  • Download your Tweet metrics

However, you won’t be able to access this information for accounts that you don’t own or have not been given access to. This is where BirdSong Analytics can help. With our tool you can buy reports to look at the Twitter analytics for other accounts and see how they are using the channel. This allows you to research the Twitter statistics for clients, competitors and other public accounts that you are interested in.

BirdSong Analytics is used for Twitter Data & Analysis  by agencies, publishers, researchers, journalists, legal firms, data analysts, SMEs, charities, large corporations and individuals across the world.
