    Pros: 

    Simple and fast to setup

    Cons: 

    Would be good to have some kind of confirmation that the linked account is valid when added

    Maybe send an initial email after the accounts are added - to show that things are working and we can see what the email format will look like. Some instant gratification.

    Pros: 

    Love the dopamine rush in the morning when I get my daily metrics with my coffee!

    Cons: 

    I wish there was GitHub support (followers and repo stars) and graphs of historical data.

    Overall, a really cool product, can't wait to see where it goes!

👋 Hi! This is Sid I recently become an independent developer (quit my job!) and started making courses and conducting workshops. I get most of my audience from my twitter and youtube channel, so I've become more intentional about building an audience. "If you can't measure it, you can't improve it — Peter Drucker" Started tracking them with pen and paper along with my morning coffee but I would forget doing this all the time! 😅 Realised I need it to be a push not pull. And that's why I built this product! It keeps a track of my social accounts and sends me an email every Monday. (including my tiny newsletter) If you are trying to build an audience for yourself or your company, you might find this useful as well :) What's next? - Moar integrations: I only use a few social media platforms (screw facebook) and a handful of tools, I'd be happy to add your favorite tool - Richer data: Followers is just scratching the surface, Engagement is where the fun is. I'd love to track how replies on twitter, open rate on newsletter, you get the picture P.S. I made this product in 7 days and recorded a video every day while building it.
@siddharthkp I've been following your 7 day startup vlog. Congrats on the launch! 🤘 Signed up and setup my Twitter and Youtube accounts. Looking forward to my first email next week. It would be cool if I can see it right away somewhere and then get weekly emails.

@siddharthkp Congrats Sid on the launch. It's been a cool 7-day journey 🙌
@siddharthkp Congratulations on your debut launch and getting #1 product day of the day!
@1hakr Thanks for all your tips! They clearly work :)
Pretty interesting. We built a "similar" service for Instagram a year ago. Coincidentally, it sends out the stats to the user's email too. Coincidently, it sends out the email every Monday too. Coincidentally, it's called metrics.fun (www.metrics.fun) too! Such coincidence, much wow. All the best!
@mayankchhabra Birds of a feather? 😋 Looks pretty cool and the perfect domain!
Congratulation on the launch @siddharthkp ! Awesome tool. It'll be great to add some GitHub metrics. Good luck to you!
@eulerr GitHub would be really cool, what would you like to see - stars, followers, ?
super useful, easy to setup, keep the integrations coming :)
That intro video is sickkk. How did you create that? Which tool I mean.
@saifalfalah the rotating phone thingy is built with rotato.xyz :)
