Hat tip: Keith DonOpens in a new tab. who tweeted an invite link. I got one. You didn’t. Life sucks doesn’t it? Heh.


You wouldn’t use Brizzly just to find out about trending topics and why they are trending – you’d probably want to migrate across your social network activity to their dashboard, and there are plenty of other dashboards around. I simply found the option to click WHY? a unique one. So far at least.

  1. WHY is a topic trending on Twitter? http://bit.ly/1fvBrw New service tells you why a keyword is popular at any given moment.

  2. Hey Laurel,

    This looks interesting, thanks for the heads up. I’m curious how it will deal with hashtag spam. You know, when Twitter spammers load their tweets with multiple hashtags and no content. Or they hashtag a Trending Topic and include irrelevant crap in the tweet.

    I blogged about this problem recently. Here’s the URL.

    BTW do you know where I can get an invite code for Brizzly?
