Since I started the company I had one goal in mind, to build technology that helped customers sift through the massive volume of content that the online world was generating. We have helped shape the social web with the collecting of social signals through our Retweet Button and built both consumer and business products based upon that data.
Today we are previewing a new product which will shape the future of content curation.
DataSift builds upon our experience in delivering a scalable platform for developers to build very precise streams of data from the millions and millions of status updates sent every day.
- Tune tweets through a graphical interface or our bespoke programming language
- Streams consumable through our API and real-time HTTP
- Comment upon and rank streams created by the community
- Extend one or more existing streams to create super streams
DataSift is designed to work at scale, serving hundreds of thousands of real-time streams and processing millions of rules every second. We hope that the product will allow developers to focus on the building of amazing new user experiences and let us worry about delivering the right content to the right person.
