Topsy – the tweet search engine


I can’t believe it, I don’t want to believe it. The internet is getting to be just like cable TV – billions of sites and nothing good is on. After playing with Topsy for a bit, I have confirmed the truth. People mostly have nothing to say. Yet, they tweet it anyway. Then someone else retweets it because they have nothing else to say. Enough griping.
It’s useful that, for a query, it gives you tweets per hour, day, week, etc. I’m curious how the “influence-o-meter” works.
