Dataminr for News helps the newsroom keep an eye on all of Twitter, alerting journalists to real-time leads for them to investigate further. Journalists don’t have to watch a stream of information - the most actionable Tweets find them, including the ones they don’t know they’re looking for.
Dataminr for News is an enterprise application, with applicability across the newsroom. News Professionals are able to define personalized alerts based upon the user's particular topics of interest and regions of focus. Alerts are delivered automatically via the application, email, instant message and integration into internal systems.
Dataminr for News was developed in partnership with Twitter and is planned for release later in 2014.
