I continue to be connected with Darwineco Systems and have been pleased with their progress. Last Fall they launched a new product under the name Tweather. It received “SAP Big Data Startup of the Year” award at the TechCrunch Disrupt event, held Sept. 10-12, 2012 in San Francisco. This latest achievement goes along with our win of the KM World Trend Setting Product in both 2011 and 2010 and the Most Promising Software award in 2010. Darwin was also named to the 100 companies that matter in 2010 by both KM World and eContent Magazine. The name has been changed to TweetZUP and the capabilities continue to be expanded.
TweetZUP.com is a free Web awareness utility, supported by online advertising, for anyone wanting to know and share in real-time “what’s up with tweets?” With TweetZUP, users can create, save, set up alerts, and share their own ZUPs (pages) about any topic they care about on Twitter. For researchers, brand promoters, and anyone else who wants to find out what’s going on in any subject, identifying emerging, spiking and trending issues within a ZUP topic is easy, and alerts inform them of movements in the subject matter of interest. ZUP page sponsors can create self-reinforcing communities of users who are already interested in their product category.
Here is a blog post that shows how the tweets around the recent bombing in Boston evolved as the news emerged. It is free and I encourage you to give it a try.
