The Symplur Signals platform provides an analysis of the followers of certain select Twitter accounts. The analysis reveals how many healthcare influencers follow the account and what healthcare stakeholder category they belong to. The data is only concerned with known healthcare influencers and it is not an attempt to breakdown all followers by their healthcare stakeholder category.
Current Stakeholder Audience
The Current Stakeholder Audience generates an interactive "audience graph" of the account's most recent followers data. The graph is color coded by the healthcare segment they belong to and with the size dependent on its percentage of the total number of followers.
You can hover any part of the audience graph to highlight the healthcare segment and view the percentage and absolute numbers. Clicking on the each stakeholder segment in the legend will toggle the visibility of that segment.
The audience graph is an optimal way to view the composition of the followers of an account by stakeholder segments.
Be aware that the dots in the graph are not scaled 1 to 1. The approximate scale varies from account to account and is found in the bottom right of the widget. The scale is calculated by dividing the total number of followers by 400.
Note that Spam and Unknown categories are unselected by default and can be added to the graph through the legend.
Historical Stakeholder Trends
The longitudinal graph shows the weekly change in the actual number of healthcare influencer followers gained and/or lost over time. The Symplur Signals platform attempts to update the follower data once a week.
Clicking on the "Totals" button switches the graph to display the total number of followers over the same period of time. By default the widget displays 8 weeks of data - click on the button to switch to 12 months of data.
Hovering over each point of the graph allows you to view the percentage and absolute numbers. Clicking on the legend items toggles the visibility of that particular stakeholder category in the chart.
Note that the Spam and Unknown categories are unselected by default and can be added to the graph through the legend.
