A Fun, Free Insightful Tool for your Corporate Twitter Account

Posted by Matthew Rehrl @matthewrehrl, Dec 21, 2020

I've played around a little with a Twitter visualization tool called @Chirpty.com which visually shows your Twitter Network by digital engagement. Although there's no quantitative description of how they calculate your digital relationships, it does subjectively feel likes it a pretty good measure of who you are engaging with on social media.

Look how well the Washington State Medical Association is engaging with trusted sources—probably a good role model for healthcare corporations to aspire to.

My personal network is also interesting from the perspective of diversity and focus, both strengths 😀 and weaknesses 😒.

I've been seeing them on Twitter as well…. particularly via physicians. It's a nice visualization! Merry Christmas everyone!

Oh this is fun, thank you, it feels like a little social media Christmas present to see my Twitter!

Thank you for sharing this information. I made one for our organization, shared it on social, tagged everyone with a thank you message, and it turned out to be the single most engaging tweet of the month.

I found these details about how Chirpty is ranking the rings. Note the devs blog is not currently available, so I have to take this page's word for what it said.

"Taking a look at the developer’s blog, I understood that interactions were considered, activities such as when the user likes, replies or retweet (RT) other users’ content. It is not counted when other users interact with your account, just the reverse. A value was assigned to each of these actions in the algorithm. “Because a retweet is undoubtedly a bigger sign of interaction,” says the dev."

Like / Favorite: 1.0
Reply (reply / mention): 1.1
Retweet: 1.3

Excellent find! So in some ways it shows how the user sees the world, rather than how the world sees the user—although I suppose one could do 49 chiptys on a user and see how/if these 49 ring folks see the user ! :0)

Maybe a better way to look at it is to say "Who does the user 'digitally trust'?" For example, why aren't I 'digitally trusting" the CDC in the middle of the pandemic?

I'm still thinking about this. I like a lot of accounts I don't share content from directly, but I'm glad it ranks Retweets the highest. That's certainly a direct connection to the account.

They really should offer a premium version that shows where you are with accounts that follow you. How much do you love me, world?
