Google Alerts for Twitter

January 19, 2010

Granted, Twitter isn’t usually one of our “oft-researched” items in the pharma & health technology world.  However, there are times which we might need to do a monitoring of Twitter results.  Twitter does offer the search-as-RSS option – however, there’s no capacity for advanced searching, so the results are often non-specific or non-sensitive.

Enter ListiMonkey, a tool you might want to keep in the back of your mind for just that option.  Think of it as Google Alerts for Twitter – with better search specificity & sensitivity.

Here’s a nice write-up by ResearchBuzz covering why and how it’s useful.
