To create a new dashboard, Select the tab you are wishing to add a dashboard to. Begin entering the desired term in the search field and suggested terms that are matching your keystrokes will begin to display. A dashboard may be created using one or more terms. These terms fall into several categories:
hashtag - Dashboard will include all tweets that include this hashtag.
keyword - Dashboard will include all tweets that include this keyword.
user - Dashboard will include all tweets from a specific Twitter account, and all mentions of that account (@ mentions, retweets, quote tweets, replies) made by others.
topic - Dashboard will include tweets that contain hashtags that have been determined to be associated with this topic. This is a great option if you are not sure about the hashtags you wish to include. This provides the broadest amount of data and you can filter it down from there.
url - Dashboard will include tweets that contain a link pointing to a specific web domain.
cashtag - Dashboard will include tweets that include this cashtag. A cashtag represents the stock symbol of a publicly traded company and is prefaced with the "$" sign.
Once you have entered your desired term(s), choose a date range. The default will be the previous seven days. You can type in the desired start and end dates or click on the dates on the calendar. Shortcuts to common date range choices are displayed below the calendar, click on one to select. Data is available as far back as October 2010, and will depend on when the term began being tracked by Symplur.
Note: The larger the date range, the more data will be included and the longer a dashboard will take to load. In the event you choose a very large date range, the dashboard will attempt to load for up to 10 minutes before timing out.
After entering the date range, click on Run to generate the dashboard.
