Lucky Sort is a firm that focuses on natural language data-mining and visualization tools that are used by various online partners.
The company StockTwits is powered in large part by the data provided from the Lucky Sort system.
Lucky Sort will begin to shut down its services over the next few months and the company’s employees will transition to new roles at Twitter’s San Francisco headquarters.
