Introducing Twitter Data

My good friend and colleague, Jiri (Jirka) Kopsa, and I recently formulated a means of embedding semi-structured data in Twitter. We call it Twitter Data.

From the site, http://twitterdata.org/

Twitter Data is a simple, open, semi-structured data representation format for embedding machine-readable, yet human-friendly, data in Twitter messages. This data can then be transmitted, received, and interpreted in real time to enable powerful new kinds of applications to be built on the Twitter platform.

Here is an example Twitter Data message:
