Most Retweeted Tweets from Twitter's Elite
As of yesterday, Twitter has uncapped the retweet totals for all accounts on Twitter. You won’t see these changes reflected on Twitter.com (where they still display 50+ Retweets), but we’ve done our research to discover the most retweeted tweets by Twitter’s elite! The results are funny, inspiring and at times just plain ridiculous. We’ve selected the Top 10...

MLB Grand Slam Tweets. Yankees #postseason
It’s the MLB postseason. As Major League Baseball is one of the most popular sports in America this means a surge of tweets from fans supporting their clubs with comments about the games. We were curious how fans across America react to events within the game - such as double plays, diving catches and home runs. Most people watch TV with their laptop or iPhone these days. We all have a need...
40K Tweets per Minute Celebrate Steve Jobs
It’s a sad evening here at TwitSprout headquarters. I was on a Skype call when our co-founder, Adrian, looked over at me from above his monitor - a somber expression on his face - and mouthed the words, “Steve Jobs just died.” My heart sank. I ended the call. At this moment the entire world began reflecting together on the brilliant innovations Steve Jobs introduced that enrich...
Taking the Emmys by Storm
Earlier this week Twitter launched a new framework for developers called Storm. The details of Storm are highly technical and I don’t pretend to understand exactly how it works (we’ll leave it to our awesome developers & co-founders Adrian @apetresc and Abhi @abh1nv for that). I do know this system is important to the future of mobile and web apps - especially related to social media, and...
Obama's Other Crisis
With only hours to go before America is forced to default on its loans, President Obama took to Twitter to try and get everyone to compromise. He put out well over a hundred tweets in the course of a few hours, all with a common theme: Although each of these tweets were useful to a large number of people, all of them together were useful to absolutely nobody — and it showed. Within...

Our gnomes took an unscheduled vacation… To our (super-awesome) TwitSprout Beta Team, I wanted to let you know that TwitSprout experienced some unplanned downtime during Thursday July 14th and Friday July 15th.

Results Are In! Obama Town Hall
As we promised, there’s now a post-mortem page on our Obama Dashboard.

Dissecting Results from Obama's Town Hall

The Obama Dashboard -- Official Launch!
After hours of feverishly gathering, sorting, poking, and prodding all of our #AskObama data, we’ve finally got our first iteration of the Obama Dashboard! Our gnomes had to work hard for this information — there’s no magic wand you can wave that tells you programmatically whether a particular tweet is a genuine question or just some promotional spam. It’s even harder to...

Growth of @garyvee during LeWeb 2010

Gary Vaynerchuk (@garyvee) is author of Crush It, a #1 Best Seller, and a thought-leader in social media and brand building - with over 800,000 Twitter Followers - popularity is not an issue. Still, we were interested in how TwitSprout’s Growth Report reflected activity on Gary’s Twitter...
