Illocution Inc has released TrueTrend, twitter data trending derived
from our dynamic, linguistically-principled twitter corpus. TrueTrend is
unique in that 1) it is generated from a SRS of twitter data and
therefore the trends have a high degree of statistical validity and
reliability and 2) it demonstrates both emerging and declining trends on
a daily and weekly basis. We will update TrueTrend multiple times a
day so we can see what's on its way in and what's on its way out in
regular intervals. More fun with n-grams for the data enthusiast.

Check it out at:


Be sure to glance at our other twitter data and applications at Illocution
Inc. Great data and great apps, free for download. Which is also great.
