We are beginning a new series called 100 Days of Twitter Tools in which we will post a new Twitter application and give you our opinions on it until we reach 100 Twitter Tools.
Today’s tool is TweetVolume.
The number in the title has nothing to do with the number of how we determine the quality of the tool. These Twitter tools are just in order as we test them.
TweetVolume Twitter Tool
What it’s used for:
Finding out how many times a keyword is mentioned on Twitter.
Simple to use.
No sign-up required.
Results appear quickly.
It doesn’t look like anyone is actively answering the questions by the users on the FAQs page.
They don’t tell you the span of the data – is it hourly, daily, monthly?
There’s not much going on at the site. You go there and it’s self explanatory. No need to sign-up. Enter your keywords you are looking for on a topic or even a Twitter profile and wait 2-3 seconds and your numbers appear with a simple graph. If you’re looking for a quick keyword trending type application, it works good. It tells you how many times your keyword is mentioned.
Looked up 3 keywords in a single session on the application, 15 minutes after the SuperBowl ended which included “superbowl” “saints” and “colts”. It appears to be picking out keywords data from in the past 1 hour, but not positive.
