FYI Body: ILLOCUTION INC HAS RELEASED TRUETREND, TWITTER DATA TRENDING DERIVED
FROM OUR DYNAMIC, LINGUISTICALLY-PRINCIPLED TWITTER CORPUS. TRUETREND IS
UNIQUE IN THAT 1) IT IS GENERATED FROM A SRS OF TWITTER DATA AND
THEREFORE THE TRENDS HAVE A HIGH DEGREE OF STATISTICAL VALIDITY AND
RELIABILITY AND 2) IT DEMONSTRATES BOTH EMERGING AND DECLINING TRENDS ON
A DAILY AND WEEKLY BASIS. WE WILL UPDATE TRUETREND MULTIPLE TIMES A
DAY SO WE CAN SEE WHAT'S ON ITS WAY IN AND WHAT'S ON ITS WAY OUT IN
REGULAR INTERVALS. MORE FUN WITH N-GRAMS FOR THE DATA ENTHUSIAST.
