Who has more followers?

We know the number of followers is a vanity metric, but who doesn't want to check it out? And specially, who doesn't want to compare it with your peers?

You can get your dose of vanity in your mailbox everyday with Daily Metrics, just tell us the users you want to follow in a few easy steps.

First signup for Daily Metrics and then setup a connector for Twitter. Connectors are short scripts that will connect on your behalf to your data source (in this case, Twitter) and extract your key metrics.

To setup a Twitter connector, go to the Connectors page, find the Twitter connector and click on Add to my project. You will then see a settings page, where you can give a name to this connector (ie, twitter) and then you can write up to 10 different Twitter usernames you want to follow:

Twitter Connector Settings

Click on Save and you are all set, you have a running Twitter connector that will send you your key metrics every day.

Once you have a running connector, we need to show the followers war on the email, which we can do by editing the email template. It's as easy as adding this short code to your template:

{{{ twitter_followers({ name: 'twitter', title: 'Followers war'}) }}}

That's it, we now have a table with the number of followers you and your peers have, and with Daily Metrics you will find it in your mailbox every day.
