Influencers influence for a reason. They are pushing a message, mission or agenda. They have themes and guidelines within their sphere of influence that they adhere to whether consciously or subconsciously.
The key to influencing these influencers is to understand these themes. You must understand what they are attracted to and why.
“The quickest way to a man’s heart is through his stomach.”
An influencer’s ‘food’ are the links they find and share in the tubes of the internet. If you can examine their links, you can find the way to their heart. All that info is already out there, but you need an easier way to gather it and summarize. Lucky for you, I have built a way to do just that!
The Twitter Resource Analyzer takes two Twitter handles and a number representing how many days of tweets you want to analyze, then spits out all of the links they have shared. It calculates how much overlap they have, what percent of their tweets have links, how many links per hour they share and it gives a count of how many times they share resources from each domain as a whole. Then, of course, you can export it all to CSV and have your way with it.
This tool is deep in Alpha territory so be gentle! It is a little slow to load because it has to expand all of the shortened URLs. There is a lot of room for improvement and if you have ideas or are a developer, contact me on Twitter @DesignMunchies.
I hope you guys enjoy the tool enough to break our servers!
Share how you use the tool with @OblongPixel. We will write a blog post later summarizing the best ones and credit you!
