Blog watcher Converseon turns on Twitter Firehose

North America Trends

US— Social media consultancy Converseon has added the Twitter Firehose data feed to its Conversation Miner suite of social media listening and analysis products.

The integration means that Converseon will be able to monitor and analyse all public Tweets that appear on the micro-blogging site – an estimated 80 million per day.

Converseon CEO Rob Key (pictured) said: “This special partnership is critically important to ensure a full understanding of the conversations occurring every day driven through social media and help remove any potential blind spots in data coverage that have characterised much of the industry.”

Social media monitoring agency Crimson Hexagon added the Twitter Firehose feed to its Opinion Analysis Platform last month.
