3 Ways to Deep Slice Twitter Conversations

By John Jantsch

deep sliceOK, so you’ve got your twitter account up and cooking, you’re using 3rd party apps to filter and aggregate search and you’ve got a tweeting routing down pat, now what?

Now it’s time to take a much deeper look into the social web and start slicing conversation themes, discovering who’s influencing what, who’s saying what and how often, and what’s trending around a topic. There is a new breed of search engine forming around the “now search” that is plugging into social sites like twitter and backtype as well as blogs and social networks.

Below are three newish real-time search engines that allow you to take a deep look as what’s going right now.

  • Keyhole – this is essentially a bookmarking site for twitter. Users share tweets that contain URLs to web pages and this site keeps track and returns search results based on topics. This is a really great way to discover some new sites related to subjects and you can interact with the twitter shares right from the site by replying to or retweeting good stuff you find.
  • Topsy – @topsy – lots of stats when you search including a collection of authors by volume for each topic you are trending. Really like this to find people who are very active around a topic or who are your best retweeters.
  • crowdeye@crowdeye – currently a twitter only search engine it gives you results from tweets and retweets including graphs and charts.
