Summize Sentiment Search Still Needs Some Tweaking

July 8th, 2008

Apparently Twitter has acquired Summize, which has figured out how to search Twitter and deliver some interesting results.  They also have this “Realtime Twitter Sentiment” search which sounds kind of cool, but like Twitter, needs some serious tweaking (tweeking?).

Check out these results:

for “Obama”
Obama Twitter Sentiment

for “McCain”
McCain Twitter Sentiment

For “oil prices”

Oil Prices Twitter Sentiment

I guess 2 out of 3 ain’t bad.

Update: Actually they got 3 out of 3 wrong.  How many politicians would you categorize as “swell”?  Of course if their algo has an irony variable then all three could be correct.
