Twitter is filled with single bursts of quick information, connected loosely to one another by username, hashtags or reply threads and to locations by coordinates.
Many of these tweets are also linked to places, photos, videos, articles, itineraries, and other rich information but is hidden behind a domain-shortend link like foursquare, gowalla, loopt, twitpic, youtube, owly, bitly and others.
Leveraging individual tweets to create a conversation requires connections between tweets and surfacing the data hidden behind a link.
What’s missing? A single place to untangle domain-shortened links and microformats. A more formalized connection between tweets.
This session is intended to be an open discussion about a generalized approach to unlocking the data trapped inside Twitter and how to make it available for use.
