Some of you may know that I tend to tweet a little at conferences. I don’t bother taking notes, but rather archive all the tweets for the conference hashtag (mine and others’) and use those as my conference notes. (A totally valid lifestyle choice, Jim Sterne! 🙂 )
Since I go the trouble of downloading a Twitter archive, I thought I’d share the archive from eMetrics NYC (held in October 2011), in case anyone would like to to read or analyse.
Twitter archive: emetricstweets.csv
From these tweets, I like to look at a few things:
- Most popular words used in tweets (via a word cloud)
- Number of tweets and retweets from the participating community and
- Most popular contributors
For 10/19 – 10/21 (the official conference days):
3081 total tweets, including 1176 retweets (38%)
That’s over a thousand tweets per day, and over 40 per hour!
Top hashtag contributors:
(I told you I tweet a little …)
