Journalists in more than 1,500 newsrooms around the world rely on Dataminr 24/7 for the earliest tips on breaking events and pre-viral information, gaining that extra edge in their story reporting.

Dataminr for News is a catalyst for your newsroom workflow — it delivers the most relevant alerts directly to you and supports your verification process.

Dataminr delivers alerts to newsrooms using a browser-based web interface, a dedicated mobile app, email alerts and other collaboration platforms, like Slack. This flexibility means the platform can easily integrate into any newsroom’s existing editorial workflow so you can track unfolding stories to maintain critical awareness as events evolve and resolve.

With translated content from 100+ languages, we deliver alerts in multiple formats such as text, images, video and audio. Seeing a story through eyewitness chatter alerts with photo and video content will enrich your understanding of events so you can easily detect those needle in a haystack moments faster than from any other source.

The advantage with Dataminr is that the news comes to us, not the other way around. Dataminr gives us the combination of speed and trust. In the print business, you have a whole day to write a piece. In the online world though, you have to be a lot faster than that. The greatest challenge is maintaining the quality and reliability of our reporting.
