I like twitter and use it almost everyday to connect with contacts, spread humor and share information.
I found a new service that shows Twitter rankings for different keywords and phrases. I typed in “Barack Obama” and it broke their script Most search terms get considerably less traffic, such as the one for my account “cvos”
Im happy to report that I am 16% positive 75% neutral and 8% negative. The service is a bit inaccurate, apparently using a single set of keywords to determine the opinion of a tweet. If no keywords in a tweet are in Twitrratr’s database the post will automatically be categorized as neutral. Some keywords are misrepresented, for example Ill is interpreted as ill, or illin when it is just a contraction of I will.
Twitter is all about having fun while connecting with people and twitrratr makes good use of Twitters API to have fun with social data mining.
