This referral traffic is a good indication of how effective your marketing efforts are in driving traffic to your website.

engagementYou should measure how many people reply, retweet, favorite or list you.

Increase your engagement by sharing the right content with your followers. Birds of a feather, flock together. Sharing stories that interest your followers is the beauty of social media. Get people talking about your topic and they will share.

Following/Follower ratio

followingYou should maintain a good ratio and look for followers that follow back.

Believe it or not your followers ratio can be very important in the eyes of a potential follower if they see that you are not followed often they may assume that you don’t have anything interesting to offer. Not to mention that Twitter uses these ratios as consideration of abusive behavior and can lead to suspended accounts.

Are the people talking about you saying positive or negative things? Sentiment is a very import part of your measurement. If you notice there are more negative things being said about you take the opportunity to take corrective measures.
