TweetProbe – full Twitter data mining

TweetProbe is an entirely different beast of an application.  This is a downloadable client that:

Query Historical Data ~ All data filtered through Event/Group/Friend are saved to your local disk. Data actions include query, set, sort, graph, export, import, and ad hoc on the fly tagging. {update} yes, we can fully integrate web services too…

Now while there is no pricing set, the system requirements were just as hefty to run it.  I am not sure how they are best utilizing the API calls to generate all this data in a quick fashion, but the About page was not too clear on that.

min System config’s :

datamine feed: Core 2 Duo, 2GB memory, display 1280×800
firehose feed: Quad Core Xeon, 4GB memory, display 1280×800
the TweetProbe app requires minimum 250MB, preferred 350MB
scalability: TweetProbe can run in a master/slave config

There was a bunch of features I found running through their Tumbler blog such as:

Friend Management : Find as you type, locating friends by name, location, bio and mymemo. Then order list by clicking on column title. Ready to group? Do it.

Then I came across:

Using our Friend Find – 101,000 friends – looking through bio’s, cities, and avatars. So much cool data is hidden in the cloud…

Ok, so I can’t wait to play with this

  1. TweetProbe appears to be utter vaporware. I can’t find any links to download the program or even any email addresses for whoever is behind this. An interesting idea but their execution (so far) is weird, amateurish, and kind of pointless.
