Nine Connections Promises To Tell You What Twitterers Will Share

Startup Nine Connections has a novel trick for helping businesses and brands grow their Twitter followers: It can predict their actions.

Startup Nine Connections has revealed a paid pilot program for its new service of predicting social media sharing trends on Twitter.


As TheNextWeb reports, the system is aimed at small business users and promises to reveal what news articles and content that Twitter followers will share–even before they’ve done so. It’s all about trying to help companies grow their followers, by helping companies work out what their audience is most interested in.
