Twitter has started inviting a select group of users to test a new analytics product... With Twitter Analytics, users will be able to see a plethora of data about their account; for example, information about which tweets are most successful, which tweets caused people to unfollow, and who the most influential users are that reply and retweet their messages.

[mashable.com...]

They are expected to make the announcement later today at the Web 2.0 Summit in San Francisco.

Can't wait. That's for tweets you say... ? Ah yes, very useful tool.

There are other companies who already provide this kind of Twitter analysis - and for more than just a user's own account. I can imagine their concern that Twitter will eventually teaar those business models into shreds.

However, such businesses are already basing their existence solely on a Twitter partnership, so both parties need to proceed with caution here.

By Twitters own admission they haven't been very good to their 3rd party partners...

Yes, at least,the GA code is still in there.

I think that's one example of why Evan Williams stepped down as CEO [webmasterworld.com] and asked Dick Costollo to take over. Williams had a great idea and is a good coder, but when it comes to charting the entire course of the company, he's not in his natural element.

anyone out there using flowtown for this - it kind of mashes all the data from twitter, facebook, etc and better yet associates it with users/contacts/clients...I love it, but am trying to wrap - wondering if this data will be able to wrap up into one client - I hope - I don't need 25 different dashboards!

We have this but I don't see any report on what tweets caused people to unfollow you. I'm not sure if that's even possible. I could have seen a tweet 5 days ago, then cleaned up my following list and removed you. Who's to say which tweet actually caused the unfollow?

Qwitter (useqwitter.com) used to email you which tweets caused people to stop following you. I signed up for the paid version ($4.99/yr) but didn't notice any change in the information sent to me and then it no longer sent the particular tweet when it told you who had unfollowed you.

I haven't heard from the site for a while and when I checked it now, it can only show my tweet from 11 October backwards, i.e. no recent tweets. Even the count of my followers/following is not accurate. Don't know what's up.
