Influence Tracker - How it works

This web site was initiated as a part of an ongoing PhD research which aims to calculate how influential a Twitter account is.

The users of this web site are able to search any Twitter account they wish, discovering metrics directly from information provided by Twitter. Upon a search request, our system utilizes the Twitter API in order to fetch the respective data in real-time. Then the necessary algorithms are executed and the related metrics are presented. The users of this web site can analytically view and compare different Twitter accounts through charts.

There are categories of data regarding the Twitter accounts which are not stored in real-time. These are the Mentions, Replies, Entities, Similar Accounts and Friendship information found at the Account's History page. Those categories are updated on a weekly basis.

The presented information of the Twitter accounts is enriched with Wikipedia data, as applicable. The data is retrieved using the DBpedia service, with which the Twitter accounts are linked. Please consider reading our Disclaimer of Liability.
