Dataminr for News Twitter tool

Dataminr for News is the new Twitter tool that will break the news in real-time for US residents.

Journalists can be alerted in real-time when breaking news hits, and there is no need to watch a stream of information. The launch of Dataminr for News was announced with Twitter and CNN earlier this year, and now it is finally here.

The commercial release is at last here and those using Dataminr for News will be happy to know it is also available as a mobile app, which is integrated with TweetDeck.

Alerts will be delivered automatically via instant message, app, email and integration into internal systems.

Some of Dataminr’s partners include, CNN, The Weather Channel, USA Today, BBC, Gannett’s affiliates, The Des Moines Register, 11 Alive and another 50 news organizations are now in live trials.
