We are still 2 days away from the SXSW conference and WOW the tweets just keep coming.  @sxswmidwest, @stevekrohn, @g_wag_becampin, @ beth_titus, @rsvpster are crushing the number of PRE-Tweets!


Over 62,000 tweets in 10 days!

My #SXSW Dashboard in Microsoft Excel

Update from March 4


I am using my newly gained super-social powers to test some theories about social media. So -  I decided to run some analytics for approaching "cool" conferences.

The South by Southwest® (SXSW®) Conference & Festival (March 8-17, 2013) offers the unique convergence of original music, independent films, and emerging technologies. Fostering creative and professional growth alike, SXSW® is the premier destination for discovery.

With the event not occurring until this weekend, I started tracking some of the early tweets to see what is going on leading up to the event itself.  Check out the analytics!

Looks like a very healthy “Tweets by Day” leading up to the event.

“Top Tweeters” are already getting busy making some noise.


It’s interesting, the data suggests that most of the Tweets are automated .

It can’t be a very "Lonely Star State" with these tweets.  Hosted in Austin, Texas look where the tweets are coming from!

Pretty cool, right? With our FREE Twitter Analytics for Excel add-on – I have a front row seat view, how about you?

If you would like to try it yourself and have a copy of Excel 2010 or better, Excel 2013, download the FREE Twitter Analytics for Excel and take it for a spin.

Enjoy, Patrick

  1. Thanks for posting this. I don’t know about anybody else, but all my tweets are manual. As are many others. I’m not in this for a contest. Just to participate. And share a little of what I know.
