7 Jun

Twitter is an exciting platform, it allows people with value to become influencers and current influencers are more reachable, just a tweet away. It has never been easier to pitch to someone who can make an impact (and thus become influential as well). Knowing who influences your potential customers and winning their trust is a direction towards more success. It takes the right strategies and work.

The first step is to research the influential people who are already interacting with you: Perfect place to start because you have already managed to get their attention. Below are 7 free tools.

Find Twitter Influencers Interacting with Your Tweets

1. Who Tweeted Me

Influence measure: Number of followers

Who Tweeted Me is a new tool from Hubspot, it finds people who tweeted your tweets and sorts them by number of followers. You can thank Hubspot with a tweet.

2. Topsy

Influence measure: Topsy influence

Topsy is a good tool because its browser bookmarklet makes it easy to get the data: Topsy Trackbacks (to install, simply drag it to your browser bookmarks toolbar) – click it when you are reading the page you want to analyze and you’ll be taken to Topsy results. Now scroll through results until you see “Influential” or “Highly Influential” flags. Topsy Influence states, “It measures the likelihood that others will pay attention when you say something. For each author, we analyze all posts and attention they receive from other people: attention from people with influence matters more. Topsy Influence powers many of our other capabilities, such as relevance ranking, experts and trending topics.”

3. Commun.it

Influence measure: Ratio of followers / following

Commun.it is a great tool for keeping track of Twitter users who have recently interacted with you:

You will see the list of *recent* interactions with Twitter influencers.

You will be able to see if you interacted back (track “unreplied status”).

You will see if you follow that Twitter influencer.

You will be able to load more information on each Twitter influencer in the next column.

You can rate results by “highest rating” to see influential users who have ever interacted with you.

You will be able to see how much impact each of the influencer’s tweets made (number “interactions” of the tweet = replies + retweets).

4. Klout

Klout influence measure: Klout score

New Klout “Moments” feature is another interactions manager you need to look into. You can control which “Klout” score users who have recently interacted with you have. There is debate in the social media community over the accurate measure of one’s Klout’s score. However, it’s a good measure for Twitter influence, since it heavily uses twitter as a measure of influence.

You can interact with your influencer’s interaction by replying and retweeting from the Klout page.

5. Kred

Influence measure: Kred score

Kred is another free tool that will list your recent interactions and sort them by its own score called “Kred.” To thank users you can “Kred” them.

 

6. Friend or Follow

Influence measure: Number of followers

 

Friend or Follow is a tool that grabs all your “fans” (people who follow you but who you are not following back) and sorts by the number of followers. You can follow them back right from the tool.

7. Fruji

Influence measure: Number of followers

Fruji is a tool that puts your followers into groups by the number of followers. They have incorporated the YAS (You Are Special) Factor , indicating a higher chance of that person noticing your tweets. Afterall, this is the main reason we are tweeting to share our inspiring, educational messages to change lives whether it’s on a business basis or personal development basis.
