Figure 1. A relative comparison of CommunityFitness with (recent % change in Fullness)

CommunityFitness is a measure of the quality of conversation associated with Tweeters. A full description can be found at ThenAtlas.org/Twitter-Health

This is not popularity – by simple analogy – if popularity is strength then CommunityFitness is ballroom dancing. CommunityFitness is holistic measure of a community's willingness to lend their attention, which may reflect the quality of conversation and general enthusiasm!

Recent change in relative Fullness (in parentheses) reflects the changing rate of active engagement with the Tweeter, similar to number of followers.

Sharing your intuition is critical

We plan for these reports to be fully interactive so that tweets, trends, news, and your ideas can all be connected through time. We are not there yet. Right now we have static reports. Please leave your comments below with enough detail for future AI or interns to add them to future interactive content.

How is this possible? About these analyses:

These independent analyses are an offshoot of the global 2018 Twitter Health Metric Proposal process.

The results presented herein were derived from Evidence-based Tradeoff Analysis (ETM), a holistic new framework that uses the balance of competing elements within complex systems to identify patterns of change that show resistance, resilience, resourcefulness, revolution, and disturbance to quantify CommunityFitness and correlated factors. The ETM framework was derived from research in forest systems (dynamics of ~1 billion trees) and the exact methodology is maintained as a trade secret. Secrecy is needed for the same reason Google's search algorithm is secret. And like Google, validation is in the results. Let us know what is good (and bad) about these results in the comments below.

Why? From the founder:

There is no more simple yet beautifully powerful medium of global conversation than Twitter: humanity in a sentence or two, iterated a half-billion times per day. But is humanity coming closer together or splitting apart? Why? Who will win?

It is within our reach to answer very very big questions about life. We are starting at the level of a Tweeter's community and if successful, we will be scaling up!

Please note ThenAtlas.org has no financial affiliation with Twitter – we simply want to make the world a more understood place.

Please also note: All Twitter-related analyses describe variability of the ever-changing community that engages with the Tweeter publicly during the period of analysis. The engagement of this community is augmented by many external influences, such as other Tweeters, trending hashtags, and news coverage. The analyses presented here are not directly associated with nor a reflection of the Tweeter, the Tweeter's followers, any individual or any specific group.
