Why People Want GNIP’s Power Track Twitter Firehose

We have been delighted with the response to our call for beta testers to try the GNIP-enabled PowerTrack for Twitter.  You can still sign up. Round 1 of the beta test concludes on October 31, 2011. Even just testing the system’s data filtering and collecting capabilities for 1 or 2 days, or as few as 1-2 hours, may convert you to a devoted GNIP via DiscoverText user. As part of taking beta tester applications, we asked folks to tell us something about how they planned to use the beta test opportunity. Thanks to “Wordle” we can visualize an answer to the question: “Why do people want to take part in the GNIP beta test via DiscoverText?”
