Ever wonder what your most popular tweets were in 2014, or what kind of subject matter you tend to post about most often? Social media aggregator ThinkUp is spending the month of December racking up insights from the past year, and they're super fun (not to mention useful).
ThinkUp (which is a collaboration between Lifehacker founder Gina Trapani and blogger/entrepreneur Anil Dash) is a pretty fun service to begin with, and its best of collection is a great way to see your year at a glance. Looking at my year in review, for example, I learned:
- People like useful posts and discussions, as opposed to me just talking about yourself (which I did too much this year)
- My Twitter bromance with Eric is out of control
- I say "fuck" too much on Twitter
- Why the heck did I tweet 52 times on 17 July?
Some of that is just plain ol' fun, but some of it is actually pretty useful. Whether you tweet just for fun or you're building a personal brand, ThinkUp can give you insights on how to use social media better, which I didn't expect. I had never used ThinkUp before, and I'm far more intrigued now that I've seen how the service can be useful.
ThinkUp costs $US5 a month, but even if you don't want to pay for a subscription, the Best Of colection is a fun way to use up that 14-day trial as 2014 comes to a close. (You can also subscribe to it along with other web services in this discounted bundle.) Hit the link to read more.
