Originally limited to advertisers upon launching in 2011, Twitter Analytics has finally opened its stat-tracking doors to all users. Although without a formal announcement, there's always the possibility that it's all a glitch — in which case, get it while it's hot/broken.
Upon signing in with your normal Twitter account and authorising the app, the Analytics dashboard is supposed to offer all sorts of helpful numbers and graphs that show which of your tweets did best and when. But, as of right now, attempts to check our stats haven't give us full results, mostly in falsely claiming zero retweets, replies or favourites along the top chart.
If this really is open to the public, you should also be able to eventually get full statistics on your followers. Will Oremus of Slate was able to get full location, gender and overall count data on his, but, so far, this screen is the best we have:
Of course, there's a good chance that this sort of information would take quite a while to roll out and perhaps just got turned on a little too soon. We've reached out to Twitter for comment on the matter, but until we know if this helpful little tool here to stay, might as well suck up whatever data you can. [Slate]
