The Daily Tweet, a new way to track the trends of the 'Twittersphere', is launched. The Daily Tweet is a real-time news and information service powered by the potent trending topics of Twitter. It is a useful way to discover and track the trends of the 'Twittersphere' and surface tweets, news and other interesting information related to what people are talking and tweeting about.
Tracking those trends…
Twitter trends tend to focus on breaking news, famous individuals, politics, technology and controversy. As Twitter has grown, the trending topics have become an integral part of using the service with many trends provoking reaction and large-scale discussion. With the Daily Tweet users can expand upon each trending topic to discover useful links, news stories, blog posts, web sites and videos that provide extra information and coverage.
Furthermore, trending topics can be tracked over twenty four and forty eight hours to provide a rich and comprehensive insight in to what is being discussed and linked to across the 'Twittersphere'. In all, the Daily Tweet is capable of tracking up to sixty trends at any one time and also provides users with a full search option via tweetzi.
"Twitter is providing the key platform for leveraging real-time data from around the globe - the Daily Tweet joins tools such as tweetzi (twitter search) that allow users to use 'tweet data' in new and exciting ways." suggests Craig Hughes (HGi), the developer of the Daily Tweet.
