Twitter announced today the acquisition of Twitter data partner, Gnip.
Gnip is one company that had access to Twitter’s firehose to resell their data. Gnip also has partnership with Tumblr, wordpress, foursquare, and other networks. Gnip does not plan on ending these partnership but it is unclear if those networks will want to continue with the relationship.
From Twitter’s blog post, Twitter plans to enhance Gnip’s data by providing a faster and much deeper analysis.
Twitter stated that they will continue to provide data to Gnip’s customer base and expanding offerings through Gnip and Twitter’s APIs.
