Tame is an analytic research tool for Twitter, developed in 2012 by Arno Dirlam (CTO), Frederik Fischer (CEO) and Torsten Müller (CCO).[1][2][3]

Tame is a spin-off from Humboldt University of Berlin.[4] The team of journalists and developers aimed to design a context search engine in real time for Twitter. It ranks the frequency of hashtags being used, users being mentioned and links being shared the most.[5][6] Tame is mainly used by journalists (e.g. ZDF, ARD, Die Zeit), politicians, PR and marketing experts as well as NGOs.[7]

Tame is located in Berlin and San Francisco.[8]

Through crowdinvesting at Companisto, Tame was able to collect € 250.000 (ca. US $ 335.000) venture capital.[9][10] It was Winner of the German Silicon Valley Accelerator 2013.[8] Additionally, Tame gained further financing from “Pro FIT” program by Investitionsbank Berlin in six-figure amount in 2013.[11] It was presented as a start-up at the German social media conference re:publica[12] and at ARTE Future.[13]
