Now Reading to Battle with TweetMeme to Battle with TweetMeme is set to tackle TweetMeme as well as news overall. At least that is the goal for Mesiab Labs, who’ll roll out the site, well, sometime. This from their presentation blog post: – Data is acquired from multiple sources (primarily twitter) and fed into our database. Data is analyzed and supplemented, then ranked and presented in common news formats. – Secondary data regarding story quality and real time popularity (interest rating) is gathered using our popular link shortening system, which is based on our link analytics platform (over 100k link redirections since release). – Secondary data regarding user quality (story breakers) is gathered here using custom algorithms that measure a users reach and influence.

Sounds good in theory, and the name,, is certainly a good one, but will it carry? We’ll see when there’s more information available, I’m just glad the old one got scrapped… And my hat’s off for the URL shortener, great name, although I have yet to see it used widely.

  • Thanks for the coverage Thord.

    I’m also glad to see a fan of the shortener, I bought it nearly 6 months ago in anticipation it would prove useful in the future. I agree with you I don’t see it being used widely enough though, hopefully with your help it will be in the people’s hands as a valuable tool for Twitter.

    Much encouragement,
