BackType & Backtweets

Backtweets is the Twitter side of BackType, a conversational search engine. It’s a great way to see who’s tweeting your posts, even if they forgot to post it as a ReTweet. Every once and awhile I’ll type in my blog url just to see an overview of everyone that’s been tweeting my posts. BackTweets is a fresh new take on a Twitter search engine: It un-shortens and catalogs URLs sent via Twitter. . . .

Backtweets is the Twitter side of BackType, a conversational search engine. It’s a great way to see who’s tweeting your posts, even if they forgot to post it as a ReTweet. Every once and awhile I’ll type in my blog url just to see an overview of everyone that’s been tweeting my posts. BackTweets is a fresh new take on a Twitter search engine: It un-shortens and catalogs URLs sent via Twitter.  We believe that, even though BackTweets was created to fill a piece of BackType Connects total conversation search offering, it will also become an important player by itself and we are glad to see it has gotten its own clean look. First, let’s focus on BackType Connect for a moment. This product is similar to PostRank where an article URL can be submitted and conversations, wherever they may happen, will be found and summarized. This is great for tracking buzz around an issue, or for further reading on a particular topic. But while it can invoke BackTweets to search for tweets around the referring URL, it is limited to searching for the particular article URL.

However, here’s the beauty of using BackTweets search directly: You can put in any partial or complete URL and get a useful result.  Go ahead and search for logannathan or ictip. You will get all tweets with a URL that contains what you are searching for. This means that as a general indicator of buzz on Twitter, you can cast your net even wider using BackTweets than you can with BackType Connect. Plus, this is something that Twitter Search is almost completely blind to – compressed (or shortened, or shrunk) URLs. BackType expands all URLs before they get stored so your search results will always contain all the tweets, no matter what service is used to make the URL shorter in the tweet.
