Twitter, the popular social media platform, has become a hub for real-time news, opinions, and conversations. With over 330 million active users, it has become an invaluable source of information for researchers, marketers, and organizations. However, with such a vast amount of data being generated every second, it can be overwhelming to extract meaningful insights from it. This is where retrieval augmented generation (RAG) comes in.
What is Twitter?
Twitter is a microblogging and social media platform that allows users to post short messages, called tweets, of up to 280 characters. These tweets can include text, images, videos, and links. Users can also follow other users, like and retweet their tweets, and engage in conversations through comments and direct messages. The platform has gained widespread popularity due to its simplicity and real-time nature.
The Benefits of Analyzing Twitter Data
Whether you are a researcher, marketer, or organization, analyzing Twitter data can provide various benefits, including:
1. Real-time Insights
With millions of tweets being posted every day, Twitter offers a real-time glimpse into what people are talking about, their opinions, and reactions. This is especially valuable for researchers looking to understand public sentiment and track trends.
2. Audience Analysis
Twitter has a diverse user base, with people from different demographics and interests. By analyzing Twitter data, marketers can gain valuable insights into their target audience’s preferences, behaviors, and interests, which can inform their marketing strategies and campaigns.
3. Competitive Intelligence
Twitter also provides a window into your competitors’ activities and public perception. By monitoring their tweets and engagement, organizations can gain a competitive edge and make informed decisions.
What is Retrieval Augmented Generation?
Retrieval augmented generation (RAG) is a technique that combines retrieval-based and generative-based approaches to natural language processing (NLP). It uses a large language model (LLM) to generate text and a retrieval component to select and incorporate relevant information from a given knowledge base or corpus.
One of the most significant challenges in NLP is generating text that is both fluent and consistent with the given context. Traditional generative models, such as GPT-3, often struggle with this, resulting in nonsensical or irrelevant text. On the other hand, retrieval-based models, such as BERT, excel at understanding context but lack the creativity and flexibility of generative models.
RAG overcomes these limitations by leveraging the strengths of both approaches. The retrieval component ensures that the generated text is relevant to the given context, while the generative component adds creativity and flexibility, resulting in more human-like text.
The Power of RAG for Twitter Analysis
Twitter is a goldmine of information, but analyzing this data can be challenging. RAG offers a powerful solution by allowing researchers, marketers, and organizations to generate relevant and insightful text about any given topic or user on Twitter. Here are a few ways RAG can be used for Twitter analysis:
1. Sentiment Analysis
With RAG, researchers can analyze the sentiment of tweets related to a particular topic or user. By generating text that reflects the overall sentiment, they can gain a better understanding of public opinion and reactions in real-time.
2. Trend Analysis
RAG can also be used to analyze trending topics and hashtags on Twitter. By generating text related to a specific trend, researchers can identify the most popular tweets and gain insights into user sentiments and behaviors.
3. User Profiling
RAG can be used to generate text related to a specific user’s tweets, providing valuable insights into their interests, preferences, and behaviors. This can be particularly useful for marketers looking to understand their target audience and create personalized content.

Step 2: Upload Your Twitter
We typically recommend MP4s for video or MP3s for audio.
However, we accept a range of audio, video and text file types.
You can upload your file for transcription in several ways using Speak:
Accepted Audio File Types
Accepted Video File Types
Accepted Text File Types
- Word Doc
You can also upload CSVs of text files or audio and video files. You can learn more about CSV uploads and download Speak-compatible CSVs here.
With the CSVs, you can upload anything from dozens of YouTube videos to thousands of Twitter files.
Publicly Available URLs
You can also upload media to Speak through a publicly available URL.
As long as the file type extension is available at the end of the URL you will have no problem importing your recording for automatic transcription and analysis.
Speak is compatible with YouTube videos. All you have to do is copy the URL of the YouTube video (for example, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qKfcLcHeivc).
Speak will automatically find the file, calculate the length, and import the video.
If using YouTube videos, please make sure you use the full link and not the shortened YouTube snippet. Additionally, make sure you remove the channel name from the URL.
This library of integrations continues to grow! Have a request? Feel encouraged to send us a message.
Step 3: Calculate and Pay the Total Automatically
Once you have your file(s) ready and load it into Speak, it will automatically calculate the total cost (you get 30 minutes of audio and video free in the 14-day trial – take advantage of it!).
If you are uploading text data into Speak, you do not currently have to pay any cost. Only the Speak Magic Prompts analysis would create a fee which will be detailed below.
Once you go over your 30 minutes or need to use Speak Magic Prompts, you can pay by subscribing to a personalized plan using our real-time calculator.
Step 4: Wait for Speak to Analyze Your Twitter
If you are uploading audio and video, our automated transcription software will prepare your transcript quickly. Once completed, you will get an email notification that your transcript is complete.
That email will contain a link back to the file so you can access the interactive media player with the transcript, analysis, and export formats ready for you.
If you are importing CSVs or uploading text files Speak will generally analyze the information much more quickly.
Speak will automatically embed your data in a well-architected vector database which allows you to use retrieval augmented generation for Twitter.
Step 5: Visit Your File Or Folder
Speak is capable of analyzing both individual files and entire folders of data.
When you are viewing any individual file in Speak, all you have to do is click on the “Prompts” button.
If you want to analyze many files, all you have to do is add the files you want to analyze into a folder within Speak.
You can do that by adding new files into Speak or you can organize your current files into your desired folder with the software’s easy editing functionality.
Step 6: Select Speak Magic Prompts To Analyze Your Twitter
What Are Magic Prompts?
Speak Magic Prompts leverage innovation in artificial intelligence models often referred to as “generative AI”.
These models have analyzed huge amounts of data from across the internet to gain an understanding of language.
With that understanding, these “large language models” are capable of performing mind-bending tasks!
With Speak Magic Prompts, you can now perform those tasks on the audio, video and text data in your Speak account.
Retrieval augmented generation is what makes these Magic Prompts work so well.
Step 7: Select or Create Your Assistant Type
To help you get better results from Speak Magic Prompts, Speak has introduced “Assistant Type”.
These assistant types pre-set and provide context to the prompt engine for more concise, meaningful outputs based on your needs.
To begin, we have included:
Choose the most relevant assistant type from the dropdown.
You can also create your own custom Assistant Template Type.
If you visit the new page Account Preferences, you can see there is now an area where you can create your own custom Assistant.
This allows you to set the context of the engine for higher quality and more consistent outputs.
For example, you could say:
“We are [COMPANY NAME]. We are analyzing [DATA] to understand how to improve [GOAL]. We want all responses to be concise and in table format.”.
This becomes a reusable template in any of your manual or automated Magic Prompts.
You can create multiple templates for different use cases.
As an example, the analysis you run on a focus group may be different than a one-on-one interview.
Step 8: Create Or Select Your Desired Prompt
Here are some examples prompts that you can apply to any file right now:
- Create a SWOT Analysis
- Give me the top action items
- Create a bullet point list summary
- Tell me the key issues that were left unresolved
- Tell me what questions were asked
A modal will pop up so you can use the suggested prompts we shared above to instantly and magically get your answers.
If you have your own prompts you want to create, select “Custom Prompt” from the dropdown and another text box will open where you can ask anything you want of your data!
Step 9: Review & Share Responses
Speak will generate a concise response for you in a text box below the prompt selection dropdown. With Chat enabled, you can also continue to query that data to reveal more insights and reformat the information to your needs.
In this example, we ask to analyze all the Twitter in the folder at once for the top product dissatisfiers.
You can easily copy that response for your presentations, content, emails, team members and more!
