Brandwatch and Twitter Announce Strategic Social Data Partnership

The only pure-play social listening platform Twitter recommends


NEW YORK, April 26, 2017/PRNewswire/— Today Brandwatch announces a major expansion in its strategic relationship with Twitter. Brandwatch now has the most complete access to Twitter data streams, early access to social intelligence products and new applications of data science expertise. Brandwatch and Twitter product teams will work more closely than ever to bring new innovations to market.


Twitter’s Official Partner program has selected only five companies from the social technology marketplace to be part of this initiative. Brandwatch, with a proven record of providing the highest quality technology solutions to marketers, advertisers, and brands has been selected as a unique social intelligence and data visualization partner. Brandwatch was named as a Leader in “The Forrester Wave™: Enterprise Social Listening Platforms, Q1 2016” in both NA/EMEA and APAC*. As a result of the new Twitter partnership, Brandwatch will deliver even faster speed to insights and unparallelled access to richer historical social data.


“Brandwatch’s ability to quickly spot global trends, easily identify audience insights, and preemptively track Twitter for crises makes it an invaluable solution for brands today,” said Twitter’s COO/CFO, Anthony Noto. “We’re proud to strengthen our partnership with Brandwatch, bringing Twitter’s best data platform into Brandwatch’s suite of analytics to solve real business challenges.”


In addition to its proprietary data crawlers covering Facebook, Instagram, and 90 million other sources, Brandwatch has a long-standing history with the social data power player as a Twitter Official Partnership since 2015.


“Twitter has global scale. But even more important to us is Twitter is the only platform whose data is open and structured. And with the right kind of analysis, this data is incredibly valuable,” said Giles Palmer, Brandwatch CEO.  


“We are going to take this deeper relationship and data access to a whole new place and create insights, visualizations and interfaces that the world has never seen before. We’re more than excited.”


In our most recent customer survey, 95% of respondents disclosed that they think Brandwatch technology is superior to their last social intelligence platform. Discover how you can do more with your business data.
