Understanding the TweetReach Tracker

The TweetReach Tracker provides ongoing, real-time Twitter measurement of any topic, campaign, brand or event. Our Tracker will find, analyze and archive all tweets about your topic. And a Tracker isn't limited to a few days or a few tweets; it can monitor unlimited new tweets for unlimited time, archiving them all for your access later. The Tracker measures reach, exposure, tweet types, contributors and more, all to help you understand your (or your client's) impact on Twitter. Trackers are available via a TweetReach Pro subscription

Monitor your brand, industry and competition, see how Twitter users are interacting with your Twitter account, and track events, conferences and campaigns. The TweetReach Tracker makes it possible to comprehensively track any topic on Twitter in real time, as the conversation unfolds. 

  • Monitor all the tweets about your topics
  • Watch trends develop over hours, days and weeks (no time limit)
  • Tweets are streamed directly from Twitter to our servers in real time
  • Follow daily trends for KPIs like reach, exposure, tweets and contributors
  • Drill into time periods to see analysis of historical data
  • Measure engagement all the way down to the tweet level with retweet and reply statistics
  • Learn which tweets have the most retweets and the highest exposure
  • Discover your advocates and influencers with amplification ratings and Klout scores
