Gnip & Twitter Partnership: Twitter Offering 50% of the Twitter “firehose” of Tweets for Sale

Twitter and Gnip are now partnered — Twitter will offer access to public Tweets to developers who want to use Twitter streams to create monitoring and analytics tools for the non-display market.

The partnership includes three types of feeds for sale:

  1. Twitter Halfhose comprised of 50% of the full firehose.
  2. Twitter Mentionhose provides realtime stream of all Tweets that mention a user, including @replies and retweets. This could be interesting to those studying conversational graph on Twitter to determine influencers, engagement, and trending content.
  3. Twitter Decahose comprised of 10% of the full firehose. Developers who want access will access it via Gnip instead of Twitter. Twitter will also begin to transition non-display developers with existing Twitter Gardenhose access over to Gnip.

ReadWriteWeb reporting that the “Halfhose” will cost $360,000 per year, and that Twitter, itself, will continue to be the only seller of access to the full, 100% “firehose” of data.
