Tool of the week for journalists – WhoReTweetedMe

Tool of the week: WhoReTweetedMe

What is it? The name says it all. WhoReTweetedMe was launched less than a week ago (although the headline below suggests it may now be called WhoTweetedMe due to the troublesome name and URL when written in lower case).

How is it of use to journalists? It allows you to see who has tweeted a particular article.

Announcing that he had created the tool, social media scientist at HubSpot Dan Zarrella said:

Simply enter the URL of a recent (between one day and two weeks old) blog post, click the button and wait a moment. You’ll see a report containing the timeline of tweets to that URL, statistics about potential reach and average follower count of retweeters as well as a list of the 20 most influential users to tweet the link.

There’s also a bookmarklet you can drag to your bookmarks bar. Navigate to the page you want to analyse and click on the bookmark to see the report.

The tool is still very beta, so don’t be surprised if you see some errors, but I think it’s valuable enough to release now.
