Twitter today announced an analytics service for publishers at TechCrunch Disrupt.
Twitter's Director of Web Business Development April Underwood unveiled Twitter Web Analytics, leveraging technology from the microblogging platform's July acquisition of Backtype.
The analytics dashboard will show which stories are the most shared and the most discussed, and which referring sites are sending the most traffic. Twitter's new link wrapper, "t.co," is driving 100 million clicks a day. April stated that an API into this data will be made available.
