Twitter Analysis, Part I Generally I feel that “Twitter analysis” is a bit of an oxymoron – it’s missing the qualitative benefits of the social connections that are made offline and/or long term.  I am, however, interested in sharing content that my core audience will find interesting.  Short of polling 1,600 people, the easiest way to do that is.
