Tweet Category wants to organize information in your tweets
In the huge stream of tracks, data and nonsense that is Twitter, the tools to organize information are always welcome or at least well received. Since yesterday I am trying Tweet Category , an iPad app that aims to read what really matters to you on Twitter and you can prepare a report for a boss or a client on a specific topic: events, products or shows, for example.
So the community managers and everyone who uses social media in their work might find something here that may be used as a complement to other, and the tool has been developed from what I can see, with the main focus.
The interface is very intuitive and therefore need to follow the steps in the guide to start using it. Basically are:
- A session is created, similar to a search but where we can configure more parameters, such as date, if we include lists, if the refresh will be and how often automatic or manual.
- Then the tweets that have been overturned, select one and it will categorize the tool with the rest.The categories are created by default: retweets, links, hashtags, chats (replies) and images. We can also add your own categories. We can repeat this to refine the categorization.
- After that step, we can access the statistics in a graph shows the percentages and amounts of the two categories, gives a list of the most active users, with the percentage of tweets in different categories and each having the amount of tweets that launched in that search. It also has the function to see how many followers each user, but that I failed to see it working.
- Finally with all these data we can generate a PDF report and send it by email. In the report we can add, besides title and information appearing on the cover, an introduction, choose whether or not to include the list of users and / s list/s of tweets in the categories you want. You can also add a line of 140 characters or conclusion at the end.
- Meetings and reports can be stored separately to access them later. There is also a folder with Sessions Promoted possibly in the future may be an option to promote brands or advertisers.
The set of tool options seems like a very good idea and I think it can be very useful as a complement to other similar services for people who need to work with Twitter and generate reports. But that has to work well and in my opinion a Tweet Category lacks enough from the point of view of user experience. As noted above, without being too complex, it is very intuitive and added that having performance problems. Some processes are stopped or is not going to create a session can take a long time of trial and error. In several searches I did the result was zero first (using hashtags that were being widely used in Twitter) and then appeared tweets 8 hours ago as the most recent. I hope the developers resolve these issues soon and come back with a version that works well, because if so can be a very powerful tool in the future in Tweet Category.
