Back in 2011, we launched our first integration with Gnip, allowing their customers of Twitter streams to filter, optimize, and build a generation of analytics and social products with the simple power of the Klout Score. In 2013, we expanded the relationship with a premium enrichment, including more permissive enterprise business terms, and scratched the surface of Klout’s wealth of topical influence data (offering only two of our expertise topics).
Today we’re ecstatic to announce the next generation of the Klout Enrichments for Twitter’s Gnip 2.0 Products. Customers of Gnip 2.0 products will have the option to purchase a complete enrichment to every tweet with essential and actionable details for understanding an account’s influence, areas of expertise, and interests. Five years of partnering with and growing alongside Gnip has helped us hone these products for maximum value and utility to the most common uses, including analytics, marketing automation, Twitter Advertising, and more.
However, with this change we’ll be discontinuing the free Klout Score enrichment through Gnip. The strength in Klout’s assets and analytics have gone beyond the Klout Score. Marketers, advertisers, customer support, and analytics providers need a deeper view of their customers, competitors, and trends. That’s why the Klout enrichment will now include:
This new product reinforces Klout Data offerings we provide directly to our partners like Insightpool, Meshfire, SimplyMeasured, and Wayin, amongst others. Together with Lithium’s Community, Response, and Reach products, the Powered With Klout program is a centerpiece of the social data ecosystem.
