This week Zoe talks to Tony Hal of Chartbeat - the company used by 80% of the top U.S. publishers to get real-time analytics on their web traffic.

Where are your hits coming from? How long are they staying? What are they most interested in?

As Haile puts it "What you think is important, isn't the same as what your audience think is important."

ChartBeat analyses over 1 billion bytes of data for companies including Fox News, Forbes and the Guardian. They work closely with editorial teams to deliver content in the most effective format for frontline teams. Tony talks to our host Zoe about the challenges of interpreting big data and the impact of analytics on all of our personal lives.

Digital Leadership Trainer Sofie Sandell this week offers advice for those of suffering from Too Much Information. A phrase so prevalent it has to have it's own acronym, T.M.I!

And Richard Lee has a Good News Bad News special for Yahoo! in the TechTweets news round-up.

Zoe Cunningham is the Managing Director of Softwire
