What are we Twittering?

April 11th, 2007

I am happy to present Twitterment – a Twitter search engine and buzz tracking system. Twitterment provides a search interface over an index of recent updates obtained periodically from the public timeline API. You can also view the locations of users in the result set on Google Maps alongside hourly and daily buzz charts.

Blogpulse, Technorati and others provide buzzcharts for the Blogosphere. This is a great way to find interesting patterns and trends.
Twitter’s tagline is “what are you doing?” and often users talk about their daily lives. Aggregate trends over microblogging platforms are quite interesting and fun to observe. For instance, we know how well correlated coffee and work are:

Or that Saturdays are big days for shopping.

What makes microbloging content really valuable from an analytics point of view, is the granularity at which users are starting to provide information. This is an exciting new area is Social Media analysis and there is lot more we can learn from this. Right now are working on a sentiment analysis module and a social search feature. We would love to hear your feedback and suggestions.

Stay tuned for more updates on Twitterment.
