I have to admit that I was a bit late coming to the Twitter party, which is slightly ironic given my line of work 😉
Notwithstanding my tardiness I am trying to make up for lost time and was keen to see if I had made any impact Twitter world. However, to carry out some sort of benchmarking I needed a tools provide some feedback. Unfortunately, Twitter do not provide this service (yet). I needed a tool which was free, easily available and, in keeping with the mantra of Easy Computing, simple to use!
After a quick trawl of the internet and I came across Twit Counter. As you can see from the sheet it provides easy to read charts that do not require you to be a rocket scientist to undersatnd. It gives you information such as the numbers followers you have achieved, the number of people following you and your daily tweet figures
In the example above they track easy Computing stats since September 15, 2011. You can also see how many followers you have lost or gained and it also gives what the prediction is for tomorrow or the next 15 days, together with all kinds of other stats like rank compared to all Twitter users, tweets etc if that is of interest to you.
Twitter Counter is apparently the #1 Twitter stats site powered by Twitter. It all started in June 12, 2008 and we grew rather rapidly because of our Twitter Counter badge. The badge is a nice small image that shows your visitors how many followers you have on Twitter. Within a year the badge was on many many blogs around the world and we displayed more than 100 million buttons in one month. We track follower stats for over 10 million users now.
