A New Twitter Analytics Tool Is Being Tested for Individual Tweets

A New Twitter Analytics Tool Is Being Tested for Individual Tweets | Nonprofit technology | Scoop.it
Nevertheless, it’s clear Twitter is focused on serving as a powerful platform for individual influence and promotion. Twitter’s recent acquisition of Niche illustrates its recognition that social influencers will continue to serve the platform’s value as a marketing tool.

In that way, influencers and Twitter have a mutually beneficial relationship—one individuals can use to their advantage. While Niche figures to cater to fairly prominent players online, Twitter is investing in the power of individual influencers—as well as larger, established brands—to create advertising revenue and build sustainable marketing value.

“We hope this acquisition continues to inspire people to create great content,” said Baljeet Singh, Twitter’s director of product management, in a statement.

Influencer marketing continues to deepen its roots in social media, and brands can piggyback off their employees’ success by encouraging them to establish themselves as influencers in their fields. A new analytics tool, for example, will make it easier for those individuals to manage and optimize their own efforts, implementing small changes that yield tangible results.
