Twitter is one of the more popular microblogging social media platforms, with over 500 million active users sending over 340 million Tweets per day. Tweets are now an integral part of daily life for many people, influencing their decisions and is used extensively on TV shows or news reports - often breaking news is first discovered on Twitter because it is so current.

Understand Conversations

Using QVSource's Twitter Connector you can load data through the Twitter API quickly and easily into your QlikView application using specific usernames, search terms or users who are following you.

From the Tweets that come back you can easily identify hashtags, links to other sites, pictures and any user names mentioned, helping you to get a complete picture of what's being said, how and by who.

Make the Picture Complete

Using other QVSource connectors you can enrich the data further, to get the whole story. So, you can use our Sentiment and Text Analytics Connector to understand the sentiment (or mood) of a Tweet or pick out keywords. You can also use our Klout Connector to identify users who are influencencial - so if they're unhappy about something perhaps they need some personal attention.

How It's Being Used

QVSource can give you a powerful insight into Twitter and is being used in many ways by our customers, which come in all sizes, from small businesses to large enterprises. Some customers don't use Twitter specifically themselves, but they use QVSource to see what people are saying about them or their competitors while others watch their brands to help identify issues and respond to customers' needs. You can read more case studies here.

Ready to Use Applications

To help you get immediate value from QVSource, we've built some free, ready-to-use QlikView applications.

You can download some Twitter Applications here - one of them is available to view online here. It combines Twitter with the QVSource Sentiment & Text Analysis Connector, allowing you to further enhance your applications and analysis.

You can also identify influential people by their Klout Score (using the QVSource Klout Connector and see what they're Tweeting about).

It's also possible to update the data on an hourly basis (or any time), which allows businesses to be able to understand external information that is very close to real time and be able to act upon it, all from one place.

They've been designed to make it easy for you to set up for your needs and should you get stuck there's some great documentation on it's download page.
