Gnip Introduces Search API for Twitter

New Search API Provides Instant, Affordable, Enterprise-Grade Access to Twitter Data

BOULDER, CO--(Marketwired - Sep 26, 2013) - Gnip, the world's largest and most trusted provider of social data, is introducing a Search API for Twitter that will make it easy and affordable for software companies to build immediate access to recent Twitter data into their products. This is the first Twitter search product created with the enterprise software company in mind, dramatically improving the service that social analytics providers can offer their customers.

Realtime access to Twitter data is great for tracking predictable topics, but it's often the unexpected things happening on Twitter that are the most interesting. By providing instant and complete access to Twitter data, Gnip is enabling realtime marketers to react quickly to events on Twitter, CRM providers to better serve their customers and business intelligence companies to create new products for brands and agencies. Gnip's Search API for Twitter is available as part of Gnip's suite of enterprise products created to make social data complete, reliable and sustainable.

"Until today, a user experience built on the indexed firehose of Tweets was only available to a select few companies who could afford to build and maintain such a costly product," said Chris Moody, CEO of Gnip. "Gnip is making this available to any product or software company to incorporate into their solution, driving the creation of a whole range of new products."

"Successful realtime marketing relies on a fast, accurate view of the complete picture," says Peter Heffring, CEO of Expion. "We're already using Gnip's Search API to create a faster and more complete product experience for our realtime marketing customers."

"If a customer wakes up on Monday and needs to start tracking an event that happened over the weekend, Gnip's Search API for Twitter makes it easy for us to help our customers report on that," says Damon Cortesi, Founder and CTO of Simply Measured. "What's more is that our new customers see immediate time to value by having up to a month's worth of data about their brand available to them the moment they start."
