Next Phase of Partnership Empowers Brands with Deep Trove of Analytics on Influencers

SAN FRANCISCO – August 4, 2016 – Lithium Technologies today announced the next generation of Klout Enrichments for Twitter’s Gnip 2.0 products that will provide marketers, advertisers, customer support and analytics providers with deep, meaningful data into their customers, competitors and trends. With this update, customers of Gnip 2.0 can now better understand their influencers’ areas of interest and expertise, with each tweet. Additionally, it delivers features that achieve maximum value and utility for use cases including analytics, marketing automation and Twitter Advertising. The addition of new enrichments come after a multi-year partnership for Klout’s deep portfolio of data with Gnip.

“The most successful brands think of themselves as a person interacting with other people and use data in a smart and useful way to act accordingly,” said Rob Tarkoff, President and CEO of Lithium Technologies. “This next generation of Klout Enrichments for Gnip 2.0 arms brands with the information to truly understand their customers’ influence and expertise so that they can more effectively engage with them.”
