Twitter Analytics provides information that can help create meaningful tweets that will resonate with the target audience. Many businesses and professionals use Twitter to connect with and connect with their customers and colleagues. Benefits of Twitter include reaching out to a wider audience and enabling two-way communication with customers and followers. The loss involves possible negative feedback. All Twitter users can get a detailed report on their followers and personalized tweets, including impressions, clicks and engagement. This pilot study conducts to know the library and science professional association of IFLA and OCLC (OCLC is a global library cooperative that provides shared technology services, original research and community programs for its membership and the library community at large) how to reach the world wide via twitter, to find the reach among the LIS professionals, number of following / followers, Tweets, retweets, reply activity and impressions of previous 100 tweets using the Union Metric Tweet reach online Tool.
