One of my newsy besties turned me onto this site. It’s pretty cool. You can find out when people are talking about a particular topic — like music or movies — on Twitter.
Why is this important? Because it means that you can find the best time to tweet about a particular topic.
Not every term is in the database. For example, I searched for “hogmaw” and “pizza.” Hogmaw, a Pennsylvania Dutch dish, was not in the database. Same for the terms “York Fair” and “Bike Night,” both local events.
Go ahead and try it. It’s a lot of fun.
Note: The dataset comes from public Twitter accounts and was collected using the Twitter API over the course of several weeks in early 2010.
