Case Study 🎉


Melissa Fares is a social media reporter for Reuters. Based in the New York office, she covers stories that affect — and are affected by — social media trends. She uses Keyhole analytics to track breaking news, develop story ideas and supplement articles with comprehensive data.


Melissa wanted to discover which hashtags and keywords were trending about breaking news stories but encountered a few hiccups.

  1. As journalists compete to break the news while social trends rapidly grow and pass, Fares needed a tool to monitor online conversations in real time. Platforms that don’t offer live tracking can’t keep up with a newsroom’s fast pace, she said.
  2. Covering state, national and international news creates a need to know where social media trends develop and gain steam.
  3. Unraveling the context of social media trends was what helped Fares add detail to her articles and think up other story ideas.

Therefore, she needed to monitor online conversations and track related hashtags and keywords while identifying influential users.


“I really do value Keyhole. It was one of the first platforms that I came across for navigating the social Internet, and it’s proven to be highly user-friendly and a pure joy to use. I even use it in my free time.”

Keyhole helps Melissa by:

  1. Monitoring real-time and historical Twitter data, ensuring she gets the complete picture of a given trend or event
  2. Generating keywords and hashtags related to her tracked terms, helping her research new story ideas
  3. Tracking user demographic data such as gender and location, indicating which types of audiences would be most interested in potential articles
  4. Measuring user influence, revealing if certain accounts have triggered or changed the course of a conversation


“(Keyhole) is everything a journalist wants to use in a breaking-news situation since it’s quick and easy to use. You want to spend time on Keyhole. It’s fun. It’s exciting.”

Unlike other tracking tools, there is no need to authenticate your Twitter or Instagram account when using Keyhole. You don’t have to fill out a complex form to start your search. It’s easy, simple, and reliable.

Was TwitterX a mistake?🫣

As Threads struggled with its newly gained fame, Twitter shook the net with a surprising and completely unimaginable move.

It did what no brand of that stature could even dare think about: REBRANDING! Over the weekend, Twitter officially rebranded its signature blue bird to a stylized ‘X’. The logo was crowdsourced in just 24 hours.

New York Times reports, “In one fell sweep, Elon Musk has essentially wiped out 15 years of brand value from Twitter and is now essentially starting from scratch.” Some studies also estimated that Twitter might lose up to $20 Billion in brand value.

Will Twitter, sorry X, revive and beat the odds? Here’s what the trend looks like for the last 15 days.

  • Total number of posts shared: 1.7M
  • Total posts shared at peak hour: 597.50K
  • Total impressions: 3.5B
  • Sentiment Score: 89
