23 September I'm a big fan of analytics. I cannot get enough of them. This is why I'm also a big fan of Netvibes because it enables me to bring together feeds and analytics in one place. So I'm jumping up and down like an excited child at the prospect of Twitter producing a dashboard. There are already decent Twitter dashboards. My favourite is Klout because it gives you figures without necessarily 'an index'.
SHORTCUTS ON TWITTER
