tweetchat tools

Dashboards

Here you find some tools that can help you organise the way you view a tweetchat.

Hootsuite and Tweetdeck are dashboards that enable you to view different groups of tweets in columns.

TWUBS is another space to follow #LTHEchat and view the tweets.

Wakelet

After each #LTHEchat a Wakelet ‘story’ will be created to archive all of the tweets during the evening’s discussion. You may also wish to make your own Wakelet selecting tweets and conversations that were of particular interest.

TAGSExplorer

Our good friend Martin Hawksey developed TAGSExplorer back in 2011 as a tool that could be used to analyse the twitter networks that formed around particular events and hashtags. His initial post on the subject Twitter: How to archive event hashtags and create an interactive visualization of the conversation is still worth reading. We use TAGSExplorer to provide an explorable archive of each week’s #LTHEchat. Below are two videos created by Chris Jobling and Scott Turner which explain how to set this up.

Socioviz

This is another tool that can visualise a collection of tweets. Below is a video created by Scott Turner which explains how to set this up.
