Here at Twingly we aggregate a lot of data from the blogosphere since we are crawling blogs worldwide for our blog search engine. Apart from users can being able to find and discover content from blogs, we are working together with a couple of social media monitoring and research services that are using Twingly data for their offerings.
Before we have a look at who these partners are here is a brief description of the two APIs (Application Programming Interface – the way that external sites connect to Twingly data) that we are providing to our data partners:
Analytics API: The Analytics API is based on our blog search engine, comes with a visual search interface and allows for accessing blog content published during the past 4 months.
Livefeed API: This API gives partners access to all raw data our crawlers collect from the blogosphere, separated by language, as XML feed and without any delay. The Livefeed API is more extensive than the Analytics API. Partners choose one of the two APIs depending on their specific data needs.
Every company mentioned below is using one of those two APIs. If you are interested in becoming a Twingly data partner we are glad to hear from you. And if you after having read this postiding did become curious about the data we are collecting from the blogosphere, head to our search engine, try it yourself and maybe start using it for your own personal social media monitoring (here we explained how to do that).
