In the last five years, Twitter has grown to 100 million monthly users, says the company, with about half of them logging in at least once a day. The analytics tool was debuted at the TechCrunch Disrupt event where Twitter’s director of Web business development April Underwood said the platform is driving 100 million clicks per day to sites across the Web, reports TechCrunch’s Leena Rao.Underwood told attendees that the analytics tool will be free. The company also plans to make the Twitter Web Analytics API available to developers to incorporate it into their products.TechCrunch has video from Underwood’s announcement at the Disrupt show. On Tuesday Twitter announced that it’s launching a new analytics tool that will initially be available to a select group of partners as a pilot program, but will be made available to everyone in the “next few weeks.”The tool will enable Web site developers to more accurately measure Twitter traffic referrals and how well the Twitter features they’ve integrated into their sites are performing.The tool is essentially the result of Twitter’s acquisition of BackType in July. According to the company’s announcement yesterday, the tool will have three core functions: the ability to understand how content is being shared across Twitter; the ability to measure the traffic Twitter is sending to a site; and measuring the effectiveness of the Tweet button integration.

Microsoft Cheapskates don’t use Microsoft Office. Or, at least, they don’t pay for it: Microsoft offers pretty decent freebie versions of Word, Excel and PowerPoint that live in your browser.And let’s not forget the various free alternatives, such as Google Docs, LibreOffice and WPS Office.All that being said, some people have a particular need for Microsoft’s suite — and if you’re one of them, you might as well try to score a deal. Like this one: Today only, Amazon is offering a $50 gift card when you purchase a 12-month Office 365 Home subscription for $99.99. That’s for a digital download.See it at AmazonThis version supports up to six users, and they don’t all have to be in your house. Each person gets a 1-terabyte OneDrive cloud account, which is definitely one of the bigger value-adds here.You also get Publisher, which is one of the few remaining desktop-publishing tools, and Outlook, one of the few remaining full-featured mail clients.The regular $100 annual price bugs me. I’d really like to see Microsoft drop it to $50 — but that would be unparalleled, so we have to settle for sales like these.Your thoughts?Blue Yeti USB microphone: $70 (save $49) Blue A good microphone is essential for everything from podcasting to Skype calling, and Blue makes some of the best consumer mics out there. They can be a little pricey, though.Ah, but this: For a limited time and while supplies last, BuyDig has the Blue Yeti USB microphone in Steel Red (drool) for $69.99 when you apply promo code MICD. Price elsewhere (including Amazon) for this color: $119. The black one can often be found for $100.See it at BuyDigThis attractive desktop mic works with PCs and Macs and supports four recording patterns. I haven’t used one myself, but the user reviews everywhere you look are overwhelmingly positive.Definitely Cheapskate approved.CNET’s Cheapskate scours the web for great deals on PCs, phones, gadgets and much more.
