A few days ago the United States Supreme Court upheld a US law requiring all Americans to obtain health insurance or face a penalty. This law is United State's President Barrack Obama signature healthcare reform and is popularly known as Obamacare.

Soon we will be launching our Analytics module within ManageFlitter.  See video walkthrough of the Analytics module at the end of this article below.

We thought it would be interesting to run the #obamacare hash tag through the analytics module and see how this hashtag is travelling through the Twittersphere.

Below are some of the results over the last few days of tracking the #obamacare hash tag.

Google+ was launched on June 28th 2011. It will be one year old in just a few days.

Last September we released some data about Google+. Our data at the time indicated that there seemed to be negative growth in the number of daily public posts per user on Google+.
 
We decided to revisit this data.

Making your account load quickly is a top priority for us here at ManageFlitter. No one likes to wait!

18,000 unique accounts login to ManageFlitter every single day. That’s an average of 1 login every 5 seconds (with many more at peak times). As we process data on your entire Twitter account, that’s a lot of information we need to sift through! We need to process data on an average of 5,000 Twitter accounts every second in order to deliver your personal list of unfollowers to you. Phew!
 
Scaling ManageFlitter has been an ongoing challenge. We started off with a single server. 3 days later we appeared on Techcrunch and have been scrambling to add capacity ever since. ManageFlitter now runs across 72 unique server instances.

For the last year we have had 2 flavours of ManageFlitter:  the free version of ManageFlitter and the Pro version.

Over the next couple of weeks we will be making some changes to the free version - the Pro version will stay exactly as is.  

Don't worry - you will still be able to use the free version as usual but with a "bonus system" in place.

We will be rolling out a "bonus" system whereby you have the option of sharing the ManageFlitter love and increasing the number of people you can unfollow per day and/or gain access to some features.

Currently all free users have access to a limited feature set and can only unfollow up to 1000 people a day.  With the bonus system free users will start off with a limited feature set...

ManageFlitter co-founder James Peter and I attended the Shorty Awards ceremony in New York city where ManageFlitter was a finalist in the "apps category".  ManageFlitter was 1 of 6 finalists and ManageFlitter in fact received the third most number of votes out of the nearly 300 apps nominated in the category.

I was interviewed on ABC Gold Coast radio after the awards ceremony.
