Twitter  introduced a new set of "premium APIs" to fill a perceived gap between the company's standard APIs and its enterprise-level Gnip  services. The first premium API is the Search Tweets API, which provides 30 days of historical data and starts at $149/month. A full historical search API is planned to be next.

Twitter  has announced a plan to move all users of Twitter data from its two remaining data resellers to a direct relationship with Twitter. Since the acquisition of its reseller partner Gnip  last year, Twitter already controlled the majority of the market for its data.

In a blog post Friday, the company stated its intention to require all commercial users of Twitter data to acquire that data directly from Twitter, a move that is expected to be completed by mid August:

The next step in working directly with data customers is to transition everyone receiving raw data for commercial use from other data resellers to a direct relationship with Twitter. Twitter immediately started this transition process after acquiring Gnip last May, and we expect to finish the transition by the middle of August this year.

After that transition is completed, companies using raw Twitter data for commercial use—to build products, to analyze internally, and to serve other commercial purposes—will need to have a direct relationship with Twitter. For current Twitter partners and customers, it’s business as usual—they will continue to consume the same data they currently do from Twitter’s APIs. For customers who are still working on transitioning, that process will simply require you to begin consuming data via a relationship with Twitter instead of a reseller.

In a parallel announcement, DataSift  confirmed the news with an announcement that its reseller agreement with Twitter will expire on August 13, and the company no longer expects to be able to negotiate a renewal. To ease the transition for its customers, DataSift plans to offer a Twitter connector to allow customers to bring licensed data from Twitter into DataSift.

Twitter Buys Gnip

Twitter announced that it has agreed to acquire its data-reseller partner Gnip in a bid to make its data more accessible to customers. Terms of the deal were not disclosed.

Update: In its second-quarter 10-Q filing (EDGAR) with the US SEC, Twitter revealed that the price for Gnip was $134.1 million:

In May 2014, the Company completed its acquisition of privately held Gnip, Inc. ("Gnip"), a leading provider of social data and analytics headquartered in Boulder, Colorado. The acquisition is expected to allow the Company to further enhance its data analytics capabilities. Under the terms of the acquisition, the Company agreed to pay $107.3 million in cash and issue a total of 0.6 million shares of common stock including shares of restricted stock subject to continued employment in consideration of all of the issued and outstanding shares of capital stock of Gnip. In addition, the Company agreed to issue up to 0.4 million shares of the Company's stock as a result of assumed Gnip equity awards held by individuals, who will continue to provide services to the Company. The fair value of total consideration of $134.1 million, including the earned portion of assumed stock options and other equity awards, was preliminarily allocated to the acquired tangible and intangible assets and assumed liabilities based on their estimated fair values at closing as follows: $23.2 million to developed technology, $9.3 million to customer relationships, $9.1 million to tangible assets acquired, $5.8 million to liabilities assumed, $6.4 million to deferred tax liability recorded, and the excess $104.7 million of the purchase price over the fair value of net assets acquired was recorded as goodwill. This goodwill is primarily attributable to the potential expansion and future development of the Company's data products, expected synergies arising from the acquisition and the value of acquired talent.

New Papers, 8 April 2014

Brandwatch announced a new version of its API to offer access to full Twitter data. Following an agreement with Gnip , Twitter data from Gnip is now accessible through the Brandwatch API. Previously, license terms had limited the API to delivering tweet IDs only, requiring API users to integrate separately with a Twitter data provider to "rehydrate" the data with tweet content and metadata.

Brandwatch plans to move all its customers to the new API in 2014.
