Tattler (app) is an open source topic monitoring tool for today's Web. Tattler finds and aggregates content from the Web on the topics you want. Using semantic Web technologies, Tattler mines news, websites, blogs, multimedia sites, and other social media like Twitter, to find mentions of the issues most relevant to a journalist, researcher, advocate or communications professional.
Built and distributed on open source Drupal, Tattler's allows a user to easily filter, organize and share content gathered from the Web.
If you want to be ahead of others on issues, Tattler allows users to: effectively monitor topic mentions on the Web; discover the most active and influential sources discussing the topic; and track trends.
If you want to dig deeper, Tattler can mine the web for public opinion, gather news content and highlight emerging news trends that would otherwise be kept under the radar.
If you want to be the authority on any particular issue, Tattler lets you go beyond the buzz and discover the most influential discussions and the thought-leaders driving them.
"I am thrilled to see the Tattler application released. It was an exciting project when we conceived it, it is even more exciting now that social media is hitting mainstream. Congratulations to Phase2 for upgrading it and releasing it. I know that the Drupal community will do wonders in helping the tool evolve and remain accessible to all."
