Is there an easy way to count the number of tweets posted with a specific hashtag?
To refine the question, let me add my bit. There could be two ways to count the number of tweets with a specific hashtag.Historical Tweets: To count the number of tweets which have been posted in the past having the #hashtag in question.Future Tweets: To count the number of tweets which will be posted in future containing the #hashtag in question.As Twitter’s own basic search feature neither provides the scale nor the simplicity to count any of the historical or future tweets, the easiest way is to use a dedicated third-party tool.ExportTweet is a completely dedicated tool for Twitter and Hashtag analytics.With Hashtag Analytics and Real-Time Tracking For Twitter , you can not only count the number of hashtag tweets but also analyze a great deal of hashtag metrics.At ExportTweet, you have the freedom to conduct both historical data analysis as well as track and monitor future tweets in real-time.Let us go through the Real Time Hashtag Tracking process at ExportTweet.Just go to the Hashtag Analytics page and enter the desired #hashtag.

Can Tableau replace SAP BO?
Currently Tableau cannot replace BO platform.Tableau can replace the Xcelsius Dashboards and some Webi reports but it cannot replace the entire BO Platform due to the following reasons:Semantic Layer - Tableau does not have the semantic layer to maintain the structures.Scheduling/Publication - Tableau cannot perform report bursting, schedule reports in PDF or excels to smtp or FTP. Only subscriptions to dashboards could be done for PDFs.Security - Tableau’s security model is not very advanced like the Access Levels & Application restrictions in BO.Operational/Canned Reporting - Tableau cannot process huge data and display in tabular format efficiently like WebI . Lot of operational reports run in WebI which fetch multiple thousands of records and publish it to excel.To conclude, Tableau cannot take the load of BO. It’s a tool which is very rich in visualisation and good for interactive dashboards and In-Memory (Extract based) solutions. It can be the strategic Dashboard tool for an organisation but it cannot be a standard reporting tool.Maybe in future it could but currently it cannot.
What are the most useful gems to use in Rails?
There are many gems to consider. The following article from RubyGarage is a comprehensive overview of many different gems, 57 Best Ruby Gems We Use at RubyGarage.If you’re looking to implement analytics, I’d also recommend checking out Segment and adding our analytics-ruby gem. Segment is a flexible solution for tracking user activity in any system. Segment provides a single API for you to send track calls that describe user activity.Our library will collect user activity that you send to Segment, and then transforms and forwards those events to any connected destination (we have hundreds of tools to choose from).To get a bit more insight into the implementation, I’d recommend looking at the following tutorial Thoughtbot created on implementing Segment into your Rails application.Hope this helps!
Is it possible to replace Excel VBA with the Excel R language? How?
There are many ways to use R to interact with Excel:A million ways to connect R and ExcelThat being said, there is no replacement for VBA. VBA is so integrated with Excel and other Microsoft Office applications that it is often better to use VBA to interact with Excel than any other language.Also VBA is portable. It can travel with an Excel workbook. End-users don’t need to install R or other software. Instead they just need to open the workbook containing the VBA and they can run the procedures.I wrote more about where/how to learn VBA here:Steve Rynearson's answer to Where can I learn VBA online?
What is the best way to utilize mp3 and video content to create an iPad or iPhone magazine paid subscription service?
Best way is to hire a designer to create excellent design with InDesig and Adobe DPS (or Mag+), and publish your magazine on Apple newsstand. Then sell your magazine subscription. Of course, it's also the most expensive way.Another way is to create your magazine using software that allows the use mp3 and video, like InDesign, Keynote or Powerpoint, export to interactive PDF, and use the system for publishing on Newsstand, like MagCast, Tapedition or Pixelmags.The cheapest way is to find online option to create a magazine that has the ability to publish on Apple Newsstand, as Magloft or Ibuildapp. Of course, in this way you have the weakest options for design.So basically, it depends on your budget.
Are there any folks who've used multiple tools for RPA? If so, which is the better platform for robotic process automation, Blue Prism, AA or UiPath?
Hi,Yeah this question suits me perfectly. It’s like even I had all this in my head.I’m now a Senior RPA Developer. As I was out of college wanted to do something different which is trending but not routine. Then went online and searched for the most hottest jobs and made an analysis what should be required to get that job.Then got to know it is RPA’s Automation Anywhere and UiPath. Went through the informative Blogs online and gained some knowledge in both of them. Soon I realised that they are mostly tool based I require a mentor who can train me with patience. Searched for Training providers online.Compared their prices and opted both the courses from a training provider who provided me a good discount as I was opting two at once, and their training was simply superb. They were like much worth then the price they were providing for.Learned Automation Anywhere and UiPath. Got placed and worked on both Automation Anywhere and UiPath.There may be differences in opinion. Where in I found UiPath more user friendly when compared with Automation Anywhere.This was my experience and hope this might help you.Kindly upvote if you liked my post, and do comment if any questions.
