How it all started

In the spring of 2009 in Austin, Texas, our founders, Hayes Davis and Jenn Deering Davis, wanted to know how many people were reached by tweets about a topic on Twitter. As they talked to more people, it turned out that others wanted to track Twitter reach, too. So that April, we launched a simple site where anyone could get a report of recent Twitter activity. TweetReach was born.

We soon realized there was a huge demand for our brand of in-depth social media analytics, so we decided to go all in and build a company around it. In 2010, we moved to San Francisco, California, the epicenter of social media. In 2011, we hired our first employees (Jerry and Marianne!).

As demand for social analytics has increased, we’ve built new products to meet that demand, including Union Metrics for Tumblr and Instagram, along with our enterprise Social Suite. And we’re just going to keep building smart metrics on the world’s biggest social channels. Join us!
