Using Twitter & Tweetstats To Optimise Your Productivity?

The rise of Twitter as a social networking / promotion tool is well documented, even in this blog

Do you know how much time your staff are spending on Twitter? Join in with me as I optimise a member of my web design teams productivity, and even have a say what I greet him with in the morning. :)

The rise of Twitter as a social networking / promotion tool is well documented, even in this blog. Tweetstats actually give you individual users twitter activity stats. I thought it would be fun to have a look at one of the young folk at Hobo to see how he was using it. :)

OK our young prodigy joined in august 2008 - he’s a website designer - which coincided with his Twitter usage as you can see from the graph below. Month on month, he seems to be enjoying himself and getting to be quite fond of Twitter - as perhaps his 400 followers might testify :)

Monthly Usage

Next up is his daily usage. Below, you can Tuesday seems to be his favourite Twitter. Monday and Wednesday close seconds. MMMM… I think the boy needs more work on Mondays, Tuesday, Wednesdays and Thursdays…. perhaps especially Tuesdays!.

Days Of The Week

Below, you see what time of the day he does most of his Twittering. He seems to be more active in the mornings with Twitter density increasing as he heads for mid afternoon.

Daily Usage

The below chart might be a bit clearer. He seems to a bit of a slow starter but around ten oclock in the morning, bless him, he’s pushing 72 tweets an hour. That’s a total of 1021 tweets all told up to now. Certainly, he seems to be enjoying Twitter.

Hourly Usage

What can I do with this information? Well if it’s accurate, for a start, he’s getting more work on the above days mentioned, I’ll be making sure his work diary is a bit more fuller in the mornings too. In fact I think I’m going to ride him like Seabiscuit over the next wee while :)

I’ll leave it up to you to determine what I say to him when I get into the office after meetings tomorrow (about 12 noon GMT).

  1. Congratulations on embracing Twitter! Keep at it, it’s a valuable networking and promotion tool!
  2. That must be impacting productivity. No more Twitter during work days for you my young protege I have your career to mould!
  3. Congratulations on embracing Twitter. Now limit your Twitter usage and get back to work or I’m going Alan Sugar on your ass!
