FollowerWonk – Twitter analytics and comparisons

FollowerWonk has both a free and pro version.  I went through the tabs to see what I could do as a free user

Searching Twitter bios was helpful.  It allowed me to sort the results by influence, days on Twitter, tweets, following and followers.  I found a few new ones to consider.  In app following is for the pro version only. I was also able to easily see who I was already following or was following me with some simple directional arrows.

Compare users allowed you to enter up to three Twitter names and compare who they follow or who follows them. I picked myself and two others in my field and found we only overlap who we follow by 46 people. Yet they overlap by 122. So I am missing some that maybe I should investigate. The reverse was true and I could see people that only followed the other two and not myself.  Which allows me to reach out to them. I was unable to sort those results by influence to reach specific people first since that is a pro only feature.

I then jumped over to analyze followers (enter any username but you always want your own first right). A cool map overlay showing where my followers say they are based was first.  Almost like a heat map. AA pie chart showing the influence of your followers was quite helpful. The gender pie chart not so much but the breakdown of those following my by range of their followers was great.  Account ages of my followers was interesting. Most active users and even the best times of day that my followers are active was awesome.

Tracking and sorting were not possible except to see the sample data they provided for their own account.

So to summarize, the free plan includes:

  • search bios
  • compare users
  • analyze followers/follows
  • overlay your social graph

Pro will include all of the above and even add in:

  • In-app follow/following
  • Track your social graph
  • sort your graph, download results into an Excel
  • switch between multiple accounts

 I think this was a helpful site and comparable to the other tools we have listed in Follower Management and Graphing Tools sections.  FollowerWonk is worth checking out for even the free version.
