Internet Media Labs, the company behind SeeS.aw, is providing a web-based transcript to all the great Tweets that used the #IBMSCGS, #IBMSCGS3, #SmarterCommerce, and #GetRealChat hashtags during the IBM Smarter Commerce Conference this month. It’s a great resource to connect with what was said and who said it.
To get started, click on this link to SeeS.aw/Insights/IBM. This will take you to the log-in screen. To log-in with Twitter, just click on the “Connect with Twitter” button on the landing page, and authenticate your account. You will then be taken to a login box that says “enter access code”.
Enter “smartercommerce2012” (all one word, lower case) and hit submit…you are now in the report!
If you don’t have a Twitter account or would like to log-in via an alternative method, click on the “register to login” link in the lower left of the log-in box.
This will open up the registration form. Please enter your email address, password, and “smartercommerc2012” as your access code – you now are also in.
This is the landing page view…as you can see, there are 13,446 tweets (so far) in the transcript…that’s a lot of data! The oneQube Insights platform will help you sort through it.
OneQube Insights has simple but powerful functionality that will allow you to sort Tweets by date, name of Tweeter, Twitter user name, or a keyword, phrase, or hashtag contained within a tweet. Or you can combine your query to create a multi-input filter that delivers exactly what (or who) you are looking for.
So instance, if you want to just see the Tweets from Mr. #RonR himself, Ted Rubin (@TedRubin), just start by typing in “tedrubin” in the Twitter Username box. You will see that there are 240 Tweets from Ted in the transcript. User Tip: just scroll over any hyperlinked Twitter username to get a quick look at their bio and stats.
If you wanted to see just the Tweets from Ted that contained the #RonR hashtag, enter in #RonR in the ‘Search by Tweet’ box. You will see that the Tweet count goes down to 64.
At anytime if you want to see more records on the page, just enter in the number you want in the Records per Page box in the upper right.
To save a particular query as a ‘View’ that you can come back to again and again, simply enter a nickname for your query and hit save…it will now be saved in your view archive on the upper left.
You can also export any query, at any time, as a .csv file. Just lick on the ‘Export View” button, and then the ‘download file’ hyperlink’ when it is ready. If you want to leave specific view and go back to the default view, just click the orange “reset view” button next to update records per page.
The last and perhaps most powerful piece of functionality of oneQube Insights is the “Deep Drill” that you can do on each Twitter profile in the transcript. With the Deep Drill, oneQube is indexing any metadata it can find from searching the link in a Twitter bio (if one is available), as well as mapping a user’s Social Graph (who they talk to and who talks to them) and Interest Graph (what they talk about). For this report, we just concentrated on the hashtags found in their tweets. This will quickly allow you to expand your network through Twitter personalities you already know or are a fan of.
“I like Ted, so I bet I would like the people he talks to also!”
To do a drill on any Twitter personality you find in the report, just click on the black drill icon next to their hyperlinked Twitter handle.
This brings up a pop-over with three tabs: Profile, Trends, and Website Profile. The Profile (default) tab contains all the info from Ted’s Twitter bio, as well as his 20 most recent Tweets. Note: those Tweets are current, not the tweets from the conference.
Click on the Trends tab and you will see the drop down’s below. Click on any one of those to see who Ted is Tweeting @, who is Tweeting at him, and what hashtags are popping up in Ted’s Tweets. Good stuff!
Lastly, click on the Website Profile to get a deeper look into Ted’s online presence. There you will find all sorts of good stuff including different ways to get in touch with Ted, other social contact points, images and links.
That about does it.
Please use this report freely and share it with your network if you like, courtesy of Internet Media Labs.
