I greet the release of Twitter Analytics with a smile AND a shrug. It’s an attempt at monetising without an ecosystem vision. And it is an affront to the users who have invested not just in the platform (Twitter, LinkedIn and yes Facebook too), but in the ecosystem as well.
The launch of Twitter Analytics is just the start. Social intelligence -- insights from and the application of data from social listening and analytics technologies -- is a business and technology topic that needs to stay at the forefront of the news and the public’s mind.
One of the key components for marketers to look at while deciding on the performance of any of their social networks is measurement.

"Interestingly, the focus here isn’t on content you share through a Twitter account, it’s on how content on your website has been shared, whether or not you share it through your account.

"Business owners be patient, the web analytics tool will be rolled out to a small pilot group this week and will be made available to all website owners in the following weeks.

"Twitter Web Analytics was announced this week, a tool that provides website owners useful data in terms of content curation using the Twitter network. Powered by BackType, the social analytics company that Twitter acquired in July, the BackType dashboard enables a user to generate keyword performance analysis and Twitter data reports."
Finding your best times to tweet has long been a hot topic. There exist dozens of studies, infographics, blogposts and even several tools out there to find out about it. The problem seems to be that the “best times” is a very subjective measurement. Which factors determine the best time on Twitter for you?
