Blaugust Day 21 – Big Twitter Part One

And with fifteen minutes to go before it’s officially midnight and I’ve mess up and miss a day – here is a few words for tonight’s post.

I’ve been thinking about Twitter accounts, specifically about twitter accounts that follow thousands of people. These accounts, even non-commercial ones, tend to have massive value in that they usually have thousands of reciprocal followers, and therefore a broad reach.

But to the individual owning the account, it doesn’t seem like there’s a whole lot of value in the account timeline. You literally wouldn’t be able to even make out trends in the mass of conflicting accounts and opinions.

As someone whose never owned or managed an account in a situation, I have no idea how many tools you would need in order to find anything useful in all of it. I don’t think Hootsuite or Tweetdeck has quite that kind of capability, at least, not as far as I know from my admittedly limited experience using it. Perhaps ManageFlitter? It would be an interesting bit of spare time research to find out what people do use – but sadly not right now as I’m off to bed!

I’ll do a part two to this tomorrow, with some more coherent thoughts.
