Introducing Twitter Data
By toddfast on May 21, 2009
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/
We'd love to hear your feedback on our proposal. Catch us on http://twitterdata.org, or on Twitter: @toddfast, @jirikopsa. If you tweet about Twitter Data, please add the #twitterdata hashtag so we can track your comments.
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:
