Tracking Hashtags By Language

Since we released our Hashtag Intelligence tool, the most requested addition has been the possibility to track tweets for an hashtag only for a given language. This is helpful both for hashtags which have different meanings in different languages, and for common hashtags where you only want to focus on users for a given language.

Today we’re glad to announce that this feature has been added to CyBranding Hashtag Intelligence. When you choose to track an hashtag, you can now choose to filter only tweets that are written in a given language. If you do so, trends, influencers and correlations will be computed considering only tweets that use that hashtag AND are classified by Twitter as written in the chosen language.

One caveat though: If a tweet doesn’t contain any word that allows Twitter to recognize the language, that tweet will be excluded from the analysis.

If you’re interested in getting intelligence about an hashtag only for one language, you can try hashtag intelligence now.
