New Tool That Detects Trends Even Before They Trend On Twitter

US based company Dataminr has launched a new tool for Twitter that predicts trends before they actually begin trending on Twitter. This new tool has been built for journalists that want to curate news as soon as possible ahead of competition. The aim of this tool is help journalists get hold of new stories before they are extensively reported. 

This toll has been built by Twitter in partnership with media giant CNN. The teams at CNN have been using this tool for almost half a year now and it has greatly helped them to source content for stories. 

This tool helps in predicting trends based on an algorithm that evaluates Twitter feeds based on clustered reports and geo-location. This tool also distinguishes news by means of the source that is whether the news has originated from a credible source or a citizen journalist. 


This tool is of great help to journalists to get to a new during its early stage of development rather than before it blows up and is reported by everybody.  As soon as the tool spots a trend, it alerts the reporters and editors. It also gathers information like videos and pictures about a potential event. 

As per CNN, this Dataminr For News has been of immense help to gather news and spot trends over the last six months. It has greatly helped the editors to direct their reporters to follow up the best stories and gather information before everyone else.
