How to Monitor Twitter Keywords and Conversations

Add to iTunes | Add to YouTube | Add to Google | RSS Feed

I’m monitoring one simple keyword that I’m quite attached to – my last name. This isn’t being done by any kind of software you have to install. It’s being done by a web site that allows me to choose keywords to monitor on Twitter. Monitter is a Twitter monitor, it lets you “monitter” the Twitter world for a set of keywords and watch what people are saying. Cool huh?

Simply choose three keywords that you want to track, and type them into the columns. Heck for that matter, you can add or subtract columns to change up how many keywords you track. Change your search preference, to see what’s being talked about in a particular area (by zip code).

Even if you aren’t on Twitter, you may still be interested in Monitter. When there’s a new product or new trend, follow it easily on Monitter. Even if you don’t like dark backgrounds, change it up and make it lighter!

All of this is brought to you absolutely free. How much better can it get? You can ‘monitter’ anything you’re interested in from right within your browser. There’s nothing to download or install so why not give it a try right now?

  1. Try!! It doesn’t have the different columns like monittor or tweetgrid, BUT, is still a GREAT aggregator-especially if you’re only tracking one or two. For example-my cat, Twitty_KaT, LOVES her #MeowMonday conversations; and lately she’s been spying on #WoofWednesday.. shhhhh… šŸ˜‰

  2. This is really cool! What if I want to capture the tweets and save them to refer back to at a later time? doesn’t really work that well. Any suggestions?

  3. Also, when Chris Pirillo monitored his own name and saw a tweet about Chris Pirillo failing at recording youtube video, he shows something so funny to the cam.

  4. Hey Chris! I built – Cheers for the shout out… again šŸ˜‰ (you’re keeping my webserver limber :D)

    @halley: Monitter gives you RSS links that you can save in your standard RSS newsreader.. this should allow you to keep a record of the tweets…

  5. Thanks for this blog. I was looking for something to help monitor some keywords and ended up here.

    I will give Monitter a try to see how it fares.

    Great blog BTW šŸ™‚
