CrowdEye Reloads With Entire Twitter Firehose

Real-time/Twitter search engine CrowdEye says it has “totally rebuilt” its site and is now using Twitter’s “Firehose” data feed. The site offers a handful of new features, most of which are available in the left-column of a CrowdEye search results page.


The new options include:

  • Filtering between tweets or links
  • A 14-day archive of tweets and the ability to drill into tweets on a day-by-day basis
  • Filtering by positive or negative sentiment
  • Filtering by location, even when a Twitter user hasn’t included location in his/her tweet
  • Sorting the results by either relevance or time (upper right of the screenshot)

Combined, these features make for a pretty powerful Twitter search experience.

    A 14-day archive is little more than a novelty. Any serious marketer needs a much longer baseline (i.e. several months or a full year) to divine any actionable intelligence.

    I don’t agree CrowdEye amounts to a “pretty powerful Twitter search experience.” As compared to Google, perhaps, but certainly not as compared with the likes of Radian^ or ScoutLabs. Your column reads like a press release from CrowdEye.
