Dataminr partners with CNN, Twitter to develop news detection tool

February 2, 2014 12:20 am

CNN has entered into a partnership with Twitter and New York-based startup, Dataminr, to launch “Dataminr for News.” Dataminr is a social analytics firm that gives its clients an edge on getting breaking news first by using an advanced algorithm that hones in on similar sets of tweets around the world, thus alerting clients to a trend, or breaking news in CNN’s case. The global news network’s partnership with both companies is exclusive until “Dataminr for News” is launched sometime this year at an undisclosed price for clients. The network said it has no financial stake in the product, and will fall in line as just another customer when their exclusive partnership ends.
