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.
