Urban Institute's top tweets of 2014
This should come as no surprise to you, but the folks at Urban are pretty crazy about data. Sound research and analysis serve as the foundation of everything we do.
Even we non-researchers get in on the number-crunching fun. Thanks to access to tools like Twitter Analytics, data can show us what’s working and what’s not, and where we might need to tweak our strategies or approach.
What the data told us in 2014: Our Twitter followers like visuals—especially maps. Message received.
