When you are running a social media campaign, especially using marketing powerhouse Twitter, it is imperative that you have all the data possible about what you are providing as content, and the results of that work. Especially when it comes to hashtags and potential searches or mentions.

These are five fantastic analytics tools for Twitter, both search and general, to get you all of the information you need.

1. The Archivist

The Archivist

This tool works in just the way it sounds. You download the desktop app and it archives search results for you to go through later. The search will find as many results as possible, and then you poll those results without you having to monitor it. It is free to use, which is a huge plus, and very simple. But it only runs on Windows.

2. Twitter Counter

Twitter Counter

Twitter Counter is a stat tracking service that works by gathering relevant data such as users, views, searches, tweets, retweets and more and providing graphs for that info. Extremely simple to use and available to use in-browser, it is a quick way to get a good look at your statistics.

3. TwitGraph


Here you have to verify your account. All it takes is a simple, free sign in for a profile with the app, and it will track all profile data. It offers a discreet service that is very in depth, and the graphs are simple and easy to save and read.

4. Summarizr


An awesome tool, you simply put in a hashtag, Twitter account name or keyword and watch it go. It will provide a huge amount of data in a colored, graph featuring profile pics. This info includes the top ten Twitter users, top ten repliers, top ten tweeted hashtags, top ten conversations and a lot more. It is probably the most extensive and helpful of all Twitter analytical tools out there.

5. What The Hashtag?

What The Hashtag?

If what you want is to see trending hashtags instead of general ones, this is the simplest way to do it. It only shows the most popular being shown within the searches and graphs them for your viewing. Then it gives a list of ten tp contributors and the stats like number of times tweeted per day.
