Combining the tool and Zarrella’s reasearch can produce some interesting insights for those Twitter users looking to reach a larger segment of the Twitter audience.

First the Trendistic tool.

Inputting some of Zarrella’s terms indeed confirms a high percentage of use within the Tweet Stream.

Although Zarrella’s data doesn’t correlate directly with the Trendistic tool’s data, his keywords do provide a starting point for understanding which type of language is most often used in both regular Tweets and Retweets.

Consider combining Zarrella’s list and the Trendisitc tool when preparing to target segments within the Twitter audience.
