Comment on Deconstructing and Reengineering #HIMSS17 Twitter Statistics: Symplur vs. Twitter Analytics by Chuck Webster, MD, MSIE (Industrial Engineering), MSIS (Intelligent Systems)

Chuck! Please!

Thanks Brian. Why I like Twitter Analytics is that it compensates for lots of things, including the example you’ve cited (non-followers seeing, or not seeing, your tweet due being on their list).

Downside is that Twitter Analytics reports are not public. Only the folks who own the account can see their Twitter Analytics stats, which rely on a definition of Impressions (actual estimated eyeballs) I like better than that of Symplur (simply # of followers, most of who see very few tweets).

So, a modest proposal for #HIMSS18! Let’s start tweeting screenshots of Twitter Analytics dashboards. Personally, I think we should standardize on the four days of the HIMSS18 conference (M-Th), but I’m fine on standardizing on a different period of time, just as long as it become a standard, so we can more easily compare apples to apples.

Keep up the great work!
