Marketwired Integration with Tumblr Firehose Offers New Level of Social Intelligence for Brand Marketers

Marketwired announced the integration of the full set of Tumblr data from its firehose into its social data platform, offering clients real-time access to social data from one of the larger and fastest-growing social networks in the world. This new partnership with Tumblr, which currently touts more than 168 million blogs, enhances Marketwired's already-robust social analytics platform, powered by Sysomos, and will empower marketers with the deepest set of social networking and blog content. Marketwired's access to the Tumblr firehose will be enabled through a newly signed partnership with Gnip.

The Tumblr data set further solidifies Marketwired social listening and monitoring solutions, MAP and Heartbeat, as the preferred CMO choice for access to a deeper and richer set of social data and intelligence.
