Twitscoop is a web-based Twitter client which uses the Twitter API to allow users to send and receive tweets, and do multiple real-time searches at the same time.

Twitter client[edit]

Twitscoop is a Twitter client and a real-time visualisation tool which enables users to mine the tweet stream.[2]

Twitscoop's algorithm identifies tags and keywords in the Twitter stream and then ranks them by how frequently they appear versus normal usage. Twitscoop detects growing trends in real-time, identifies breaking news and then monitors specific keywords along with graphs that display the activity for any given word on Twitter. The results are also displayed in a tag-cloud, where the more popular tags are presented in a bigger font.[3] Twitscoop also provides an API for third-party applications, which is being used by TweetDeck for instance.

History[edit]

Twitscoop was used by a number of publications to support articles related to buzz propagation on Twitter:

  • Buzz created by the Telegraph around MP's expenses in the UK.[4]
  • Analysis by Techcrunch about the great Google outage on May 14, 2009.[5]
  • Study of the social media role in breaking news by the Telegraph.[6]
