Twitscoop is a Twitter client and a real-time visualisation tool which enables users to mine the tweet stream.
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. Twitscoop also provides an API for third-party applications, which is being used by TweetDeck for instance.
Twitscoop was used by a number of publications to support articles related to buzz propagation on Twitter:
