Twizoo now acquired by Skyscanner was a startup that reads tweets feed on twitter filter it to include tweets most similar to your brand and then returns the tweets that will hopefully attract more customers to your site, this simple service would be a plugin your website where Twizoo will display the tweets about your brand.
The platform also includes some customers analysis and targeting features, the system in it’s simplest form can be built using 3 steps:
- Feed aggregator that collects recent tweets
- Feed filter that will tag the tweets using the entities that appear in them
- Sentiment analysis of other engagement metrics (like the number of likes found in the tweet) this is aimed at selecting only the positive feedback to be displayed on your home page
This can be seen as the next step after content selection. In this step the goal is extracting insights from the collected data, converseon is an example of such services where their services include:

There has been a lot of advancements in the field of chatbots, mainly in limited chatbots specialized for a specific list of use cases.
Some of the leading companies in this field include (conversocial , getJenny, and livePerson) but the performance is not that good at the moment and these systems are usually as an assistant to a human employee.
The goal of this technology is to connect companies with influential people on social media, these influencers can range from celebrities to small content creators, in order to pitch the company message, One example is ( InsightPool, currently named trendkit) a platform that searches through more than 600 million influencers across the social media spectrum to find the influencers who fit a brand’s unique characteristics, personality and goals, there is a whole field of NLP centred around public relations intelligence to facilitate connecting to new customers, suppliers, or marketing outlets. And there are a plethora of companies working in this area.
The New York Times internally built an app that they call Blossom that works within Slack. It’s an intelligent bot that uses story engagement data to help them decide which of the 300 odd stories they have in a given day deserves a promotion or a higher amount of focus.
Basically data mining to find competitors and gaps in the market, an example of such service is unmetric.
