Thousands of links are being shared every day on Twitter. There is definitely a lot of noise out there, but you’d still like to find out latest news and articles, or what people are talking about your brand or company.
For most of these shortened links you see within friends’ timelines, you would probably like to check if anyone else has considered them a value or of enough interest to be read and shared. Or maybe you simply want to follow all conversation that goes around the world for a topic mentioning your brand/organization or your blog articles.
As a solution to this trend, Tweetvisor is now displaying world wide reactions to any URL shared on Twitter and listed with the web-based application, via newly launched ContextVoice service.
How this works on Tweetvisor
- First, Tweetvisor is expanding via LongURL.org all URLs found in any tweets listed in Twitter timelines, so you can preview the full URL and page titles before clicking on shortened links with unpredictable content.
- Under each full URL you will find a link to expand via ContextVoice the list of ALL world wide reactions for that article or web page (check the large snapshot below).
ContextVoice is a London-based Romanian startup, who’s leaders are known for also creating SeedCamp-winner uberVU. Their system is crawling various web platforms from which it thoroughly gathers all comments and reactions for a specific article URL. In their own words, it sounds like this:
ContextVoice gets comments, reactions, mentions around a URL from all over the Web. For example, if a blog post gets commented on, if it has trackbacks that also have comments, if it gets shared on Twitter or FriendFeed, if it gets comments on Digg or Reddit, ContextVoice sees this as a single conversation that it tracks in close to real-time.
So forget the simple keyword mention. If a customer’s brand is mentioned in a blog post, there’s a wealth of data in the comments on the blog, on Twitter and on FriendFeed. Most of those comments will not contain the specific brand keyword. Although the comments express very valuable opinions, that information is lost. The only solution is tracking the whole conversation, wherever it goes around the Web. That’s where ContextVoice comes in.
