Statistical Sampling

Just added a new feature for accounts with huge Second-Level Networks (eg. Starbucks, with >280K followers and growing). Instead of crawling the entire Second-Level Network (which Twitter won’t allow anyway), we can get pretty accurate using statistical sampling. See the bottom of our report for Starbucks to see this effect in action.

If you don’t have a network with more than 35K followers, you’ll still have your entire network crawled… and don’t fret, we’ll help you improve that followers number!
