Research.ly launches real-time search for Twitter
Research.ly is a new platform to search for conversations on Twitter and track statistics. This is not a microblogging analytics tool, but it provides useful information for marketers and experts in social networks.
The Research.ly service offers a historical analysis of tweets going back three years through a streaming database. With access to this information from Twitter, the tool has built indexes for categories such as gender, opinion, position, degrees of separation, among others.
Twitpic images or YouTube videos can also be found using Research.ly. Twitter users are categorized depending on the position they occupy their companies.
