Most popular Australian athletes, clubs, leagues and sport organizations on Twitter (October 11)

Posted by Laura on Tuesday, 12 October, 2010

This is an updated version of Most popular Australian athletes, clubs, leagues and sport organizations on Twitter (version 2) and Most popular Australian athletes, clubs, leagues and sport organizations on Twitter (October 4). If I’m missing anyone or anything, let me know.


Unlike previous posts where I showed the total followers, I’ve decided to show just the top 25. After that, I have a table which shows the total difference in followers. The most recent columns may be a bit inaccurate in that a couple of new accounts were added to that list and a few either weren’t counted for some reason or were deleted. This accounts for a few of the people on the extremes.

25 most popular Australian sport related accounts as of October 11

Most popular Australian athletes, clubs, leagues and sport organizations on Twitter (October 4)

Posted by Laura on Monday, 4 October, 2010

This is an updated version of Most popular Australian athletes, clubs, leagues and sport organizations on Twitter (version 2). If I’m missing anyone or anything, let me know.

The top 10 are unchanged since the last time I ran this. Stephanie Rice gained one place, going from 12 to 11. RealBigDell moved from 13 to 12. LionsRugbyTeam dropped from 11 to 13.  harry_o moved from 19 to 15. NRL and SamBurgess8 both dropped one. jarrydhayne_1 moved from 17 to 19. karmichaelhunt and jimstynes swapped places with jimstynes going up one and karmichaelhunt going down one. Of the top 20, warne888 gained the most total new followers with 15,055. LionsRugbyTeam gained the least with 144. harry_o, who had the biggest gain, had 2304 new followers. The biggest overall loser is BENJI_MARSHALL6 who lost 33 followers.

Posted by Laura on Wednesday, 15 September, 2010

This is an update on my September 13 post. I’ve added roughly about fifty more athletes. I want to improve the list some more and try to update this list regularly during the Commonwealth Games to see if those individual athletes gain a following during them. If I’m missing anyone or anything, let me know.

Most popular Australian athletes, clubs, leagues and sport organizations on Twitter

Posted by Laura on Monday, 13 September, 2010

It has been a while since I’ve done one of these lists of most popular. I’m hoping this list is more comprehensive than others I’ve done. The list includes all Australian athletes, clubs, leagues and sport organizations on Twitter that I’m aware of. There are a few cases where athletes and clubs outside Australia have been included. These are on there because the league they are part of is primarily Australian based: The Super 14, the A-League, the NRL, the Tri-Nations Cup,  the ANZ Championship, and the NBL. If anyone is missing, let me know. I’m especially interested in athletes competing in the Commonwealth Games.

This list doesn’t necessarily have much meaning from an analysis viewpoint. It can provide insight into some of the leagues, teams and athletes that do social media better. It might suggest who the most popular people and groups are online. Taken as a whole, it might suggest the best type of update strategy for getting followers. Or it might not. This information doesn’t exists in isolation and additional analysis is needed to impart greater meaning.

Now, on with the list…

Location of recent Essendon followers on Twitter

Posted by Laura on Tuesday, 24 August, 2010

A friend is building me a Twitter tool that will allow me to get the location information for people who follow certain accounts. It hasn’t had all the bugs worked out of it. At the moment, it only captures the 100 most recent followers’s location information. That said, this could still be interesting so I got the follower location data for five Essendon related Twitter accounts: Essendon_FC, essendonfc, JasonJohnson14, jobewatson, SteveAlessio. Bear in mind, this is the 100 most recent followers only… but it gives an idea as to where the fanbase is for the team and how players and former players differ from the club and a Bombers fansite. (I’ll eventually get around to getting more teams and all the followers and do a better post then.)

Table below. This is based on capture data from 7am Canberra time on August 24, 2010.

I’ve been occassionally collecting tweets related to the AFL from Searchtastic. I’ve blogged about that in earlier posts. If I decide to compare apples to oranges, recent tweet follower locations to tweet references by tweeter location, there are some noticable geographic differences in where people are tweeting about the team from compared to where they follow from. (This isn’t a fair comparison for a variety of reasons. First and foremost, neither represents a particularly complete data set. 2% of total followers versus unknown amount of tweets is hardly representative. I’m making it anyway, mostly to amuse myself and so I can potentially follow up later.) There are different patterns.  There are more international based tweets than international recent followers…

What would be interesting is to see if this hold up if the tweet total went up and the follower locations represented the whole population…   I just don’t know how many tweets would need to be included to even begin to provide an accurate picture.  (I’ve started logging a few #hashtags on http://twapperkeeper.com/ and hopefully I can get more Tweets archived and get some one to do a script call for me to pull in the location information of the user.)

This data isn’t really complete and I really dislike text based content analysis but the patterns seem pretty clear at the moment that the people tweeting and following the team are what is probably the ideal market for Essendon in that they can more easily monetize those fans by selling them merchandise in Australia, getting them to attend games or having them watch games on television. The raw data (only Bombers related from a larger Australian sport Excel related file) used in this post is available at Essendon.xls.

Has there been a population shift for the AFL on Dreamwidth Studios since June?

Posted by Laura on Monday, 23 August, 2010

I wanted to feel a bit productive this afternoon so I thought I would go back and look at one of the easily measurable populations that I have. In this case, I chose Dreamwidth Studios. Was there a population shift since June when I last recorded how many people listed a team as an interest? Nope. Data below.

What domains in #afl related tweets get the most [email protected] ReTweets?

Posted by Laura on Thursday, 19 August, 2010

This post is a follow up to What #afl related hashtags get the most RT @ ReTweets? and Want to be Retweeted? Add URLs to Your Tweets!. This post looks at the what domains get the most retweets in tweets related to the AFL. It borrows the methodology (and assumptions) from the previous post with two major differences. First, the tweet collection had 10,412 total tweets instead of 8,523 at the start. (More recent tweets and more tweets.) Second, a new tool was needed to lengthen short urls. The tool that was used was Long URL please, a FireFox extension. Short links were copy pasted from Excel to a draft document, urls were lengthened and then pasted back. (When URLs were not lengthened, they were manually visited to get the real url.)

That out of the way, there 10,412 total tweets that could be examined. The list of keywords used can be found at using my raw data. Duplicate Tweets were removed bringing the total to 6,313 unique tweets. Tweets that did not include a url were removed. This brought the Tweet total down to 2,892 tweets. (About 46% of AFL related Tweets include a URL. This compares to 52% of AFL related Tweets with #hashtags.) There were 2,941 urls in these Tweets, with 2,582 unique urls in these Tweets. Of these, there were 623 unique domains. For all AFL related Tweets with urls, the following domains were the most popular:

Of the Tweets with urls, only 342 of them were ReTweets. That means about 5% of AFL related ReTweets contain domains. (Compare that to ReTweets containing #hashtags: 8%.) There were 150 domains mentioned Amongst those, the following domains were the most popular:

The domains that are ReTweeted are interesting. It is really easy to link spam on Twitter and some people and organizations do. If you look at some accounts, they post view TwitterFeed. Beyond that, you can tell when looking at a URL list that automated link posting is happening because the account may be using a URL shortener that isn’t as popular and the URLs tend to follow a sequence. The AFL and various news services put out URLs and they just aren’t getting ReTweeted at the same rate that they are getting posted. What is getting ReTweeted? People’s pictures and club related links.

Looking at both the domain list and the Domain ReTweet list, one thing that stands out for me is the lack of Wikipedia links. Wikipedia ranks really high on Google and other search engines. The AFL related content is highly ranked. The AFL articles are often really, really, really good and they are updated frequently. They can be really useful when looking for historical information. Thus, I’m surprised that there were only 3 references to Wikipedia. What gives? Why isn’t Wikipedia being cited more?

Moving on, 488 accounts were mentioned in the 343 ReTweets with URLs. The following table gives an idea as to who the most popular mentions were:

That Essendon and Sydney were amongst the most mentioned doesn’t come as a surprise: Their domains were highly ranked. What is a bit surprising that the Blues aren’t highly ranked; they ranked highly for mentions with #hashtags. St. Kilda ranked highly on both lists. I half want to attribute this to the idea that their audience may be more Twitter savvy than other clubs’s fans. I’d have thought players might have been higher on this list but they really don’t appear to be a factor. This may suggest that players are not Tweeting urls or that content isn’t what their fans are interested in.

The lesson of these two posts is that if you want your AFL related tweets reposted, be partisan in your support and link to official club content that the news services haven’t yet written about yet.

What #afl related hashtags get the most RT @ ReTweets?

Posted by Laura on Sunday, 15 August, 2010

While on vacation, a friend of mine recommended I read Want to be Retweeted? Add Hashtags to Your Tweets! The article is rather interesting and looks at the #hashtags that led to the most ReTweets.

I have a collection of AFL related tweets that I update semi-regularly. More often than not, I use these for geographic related analysis. My AFL tweet collection has a series of issues though that make me hesitant to always draw definitive conclusions from it. These issues include:

  • Incomplete tweet set for keywords: I only get what is available from Searchtastic.
  • Incomplete tweet set based on keyword limitations: Even supposing I could get all the tweets related to a keyword, I can’t find every reference to the AFL as there are too many possible words that could reference the AFL and its clubs.
  • Incomplete tweet set because of time: Some keywords were searched for earlier and some later. Not all keywords were looked at over the same period.
  • Irrelevant tweets: Keywords like #gosaints may refer to the St. Kilda Saints or the New Orleans Saints. AFL may refer to the AFL-CIO, a union in the United States. Unless every tweet is examined, irrelevant tweets will remain in the data set.

These are major obstacles to doing any sort of content analysis for Twitter when specific subgroups are looked at. Many of these issues are ones that other researchers are likely to have too: You can’t get the complete data set, will include garbage data and may not be entirely timely.

That said, despite these limitations, I still wanted to know what are the most popular #hashtags for AFL related tweets and what type of hashtags are likely to be ReTweeted.

To get my dataset of Tweets, first I went to Searchtastic, ran a series of searches over the course of 6 weeks, and exported those results to Excel. I noted the keyword I searched for and the team that keyword is related to. The keyword searches that were run on Searchtastic during this period included: #afl, #aflbluestigers, #aflcatslions, #afldemonsswans, #afldogscats, #afldogsfreo, #afldogspower, #afleaglesblues, #aflfooty, #aflhawksdemons, #aflkangasbombers, #aflkangasfreo, #AFLPAQUIZ, #aflpiestigers, #aflpowercrows, #aflpowereagles, #aflsaintshawks, #aflswanshawks , #brisbanelions, #dreamteam, #footy, #fremantle, #freo, #freo AFL, #goblues, #gobombers, #Gocats, #gocrows, #gopies, #gosaints, #goswans, #NMFC, #northmelbourne, #sackermanis, #supercoach, #sydneyswans, #teamgws, #thekennel, #wafl, #westcoast afl, ackermanis sacked, ACT4GWS, Adelaide Crows, Adelaide_FC, afl Bombers, AFL GWS, AFL Magpies, afl pies, AFL Tony Lockett, Aker Bulldogs, Akermanis, akermanis dogs, akermanis gillard, Australian rules, blues afl, Brad Johnson, Brad Johnson AFL, Brady Rawlings, brisbane afl, Brisbane Lions, Brownlow Medal, Cameron Mooney cats, Carlton Blues, Chris Judd Carlton, Collingwood, collingwood AFL, Collingwood Magpies, crows afl, Damien Hardwick, DemonsHQ, Dockers AFL, eagles afl, eagles perth, Eric Mackenzie , Essendon afl, Essendon Bombers, etihad kilda, folau afl, folau israel, Fremantle Dockers, fremantle ruckman, GCFC, geelong cats, Gold Coast Suns, harry_o, Hawthorn Hawks, HawthornFC, Jason Akermanis, Jeff Kennett, Judd Blues, kilda, kilda AFL, kilda riewoldt, lions afl, Mark Harvey, mcg kilda, Melbourne Demons, milburn cats, Nathan van Berlo Crows, North Melbourne Kangaroos, PAFC, Peter Szental, Port Adelaide Power, portadelaidefc, Richmond Football, Richmond Tigers, Rodney Eade dogs, roos afl, sackermanis, spoon eagles, spoon lions, spoon tigers, spoon wce, swans afl, swans footy, swans ruckman, Sydney Swans, tigers afl, Travis Johnstone, Trent Cotchin, WCE AFL, West Coast Eagles, and Western Bulldogs. These keywords represent all teams and often include multiple keywords for them.

The next step was to remove all duplicate tweets. As some tweets contain multiple keywords and some searches were run more than once over that 6-week time period, that possibility existed. To do this, three columns were copy and pasted to a new worksheet: Username, Tweet and In Reply To. On Excel, I did this using Filter -> Advanced Filter -> Unique records only. This process took the total tweets from 8,523 to 5,427.

The third step was to identify all the hash tags used in this data set. To do this, I copy and pasted all the tweets to Notepad. I ran a find and replace for [space]# and replaced with [tab]#. I copy and pasted these back, removed all cells that did not start with a #. After this was done, the data set was copy and pasted back to Notepad. Another find and replace was done, this time, [space] was replaced with [tab]. This was pasted back to excel and all cells that did not start with # were deleted. The completed list was 2,833 total hashtags used. Of these, 556 were unique. The following table counts their total usage:

The next step was to count the total @ replies and hashtag uses. To do this, all the unique tweets were copied to a new worksheet. A filter was created to list all tweets that did not include an @ sign. These tweets were deleted. This brought the total tweets from 5,427 to 1,844. The next step was to create a filter to show all tweets that did not include a #. These tweets were then deleted. This brought the total Tweets down to 832. The next step was to look remove tweets that did not contain “RT @”, “RT:@”, “retweeting @”, “retweet @”, “via @”, “thx @”, “HT @”, or “r @”. This leaves 458 tweets that are retweets that contain hash tags.

The same process was conducted to count the hash tags that was used for all hash tags and RT @. The following list was created of people who were the most ReTweeted (or mentioned in the ReTweeted tweet) where the tweets contained #hashtags and the #hashtag totals for ReTweets. These were then totaled and counted, resulting in the following table:

Based on this sample, (because the whole of the population of AFL tweets is not available and cannot the total cannot be counted to determine the representative value of the sample) the most RTed #hashtag in a Tweet related to the AFL is #gosaints. #dreamteam comes in second. #gocats comes in third. #afl comes in fourth.

The #gosaints tag is popular and the team’s official account has encouraged its use. More recently, New Orleans Saints fans have used it as the NFL pre-season has started. #dreamteam is one of the two most popular AFL fantasy leagues and those fantasy leagues are big into fostering community. Beyond these top four, the most popular tags tend to involve specific match ups. If all tags related to match ups had been included around the time that the games took place, it is highly possible more would be on that list.

In terms of who gets RTed and mentioned in ReTweets, official accounts dominate: The AFL, Carlton, St. Kilda, Hawthorn, the Bombers, Geelong and the Swans. The first non-team account to appear is P. Diddy and he is followed by a number of influential Australian social media people. The next person / non-official AFL account to appear is Julia Gillard. AFL players do not appear to be ReTweeted en masse when compared to their club sides. This isn’t to say that people don’t actively read and follow them. If looking at ReTweets without #hashtags, @harry_o would appear on top with 50 mentions. It is probable that clubs are using #hashtags and players are not; there could be a digital cultural awareness divide between the two.

A copy of the data and some of my step by step process making it workable can be found at RTAFL.xls. I find the whole thing really interesting. If anyone has any tools to make dataming easier or has a suggestion for additional research in this area, let me know as I’d love to hear it.

Most popular AFL and NRL teams on Facebook

Posted by Laura on Friday, 30 July, 2010

This list extends a bit beyond the AFL and NRL but not much.  The following list contains the total number of fans or members of a Facebook group or fanpage today.  All the official AFL and NRL club pages and accounts are included.  Beyond that, there are a number of other groups and clubs that I had looked at before.  Some of these are official accounts.  Some of them are not.  A number have been deleted after they were originally looked at.  This gives a bit of an idea of what I’m interested in.  It also gives an idea as to how successful official club pages are at capturing the majority of their audience or if fans are going elsewhere.  In some cases, it also gives an idea as to how successful anti-campaigns are at garnering attention.

Most popular Australian clubs and teams on Twitter

Posted by Laura on Thursday, 29 July, 2010

I haven’t done an update in a month or so… but this is my list of Australian clubs, leagues and athletes on Twitter.  It is sorted by followers.  The list is rather comprehensive but not all comprehensive.  A few accounts have been deleted since the last time I did this.  Those accounts aren’t noted this time around. And unlike the last time around, I haven’t htmled the Twitter accounts.  If you see any people or clubs or fansites that I’m missing, let me know in the comments.

One of the comments included links to several Australian athletes on Twitter that I had missed. Some of these athletes aren’t active in Australian leagues so they don’t necessarily really fit well with most of the people and leagues on the list… but included below for interest. Any more names of people, leagues and clubs I’m missing, let me know. :)
