Social media analytics company Gnip just announced that it is partnering with Twitter to sell access to Twitter’s data.

Gnip is offering limited access to Twitter’s firehose through three products:

  • Twitter Halfhose: 50% of all tweets.
  • Twitter Decahose: 10% of all tweets.
  • Twitter Mentionhose: All tweets that mention Twitter users, including retweets.

These products are for companies to perform analytics only — the licenses don’t give companies the right to display tweets or to resell the data.

ReadWriteWeb reports that access to Halfhose is going to be sold for $360,000 per year.
