Topsy Makes Every Tweet Since The Beginning Of Time Searchable

Last month Topsy, a social search and analytics company, bolstered their service to allow for users to search all Tweets since July 2010. Today, Topsy has announced that they have indexed every Tweet since the beginning of Twitter.


The first Tweet was recorded back in Spring of 2006 by Twitter co-founder Jack Dorsey and everything from that point on is now searchable thanks to Topsy.  The total overall Topsy index is now upwards of 540 billion Tweets. Jamie De Guerre, SVP Product & Marketing at Topsy, says that this change actually makes the Topsy Index larger than Bing’s:

“With more than 450 million tweets being sent every day, indexing Twitter all the way back to 2006 is a huge undertaking. In fact, Topsy now houses more items in our indices than Microsoft Bing,”

Thanks to advanced Topsy search operators, users can really hone in on the most pertinent information using Topsy. Co-founder and Topsy CTO, Vipul Prakash, stated the following about his upgraded service:

“We started Topsy to give our users a tool for capturing actionable segments of public conversation … by adding a full historical index, now we can even look even further back to the very first Tweets 7 years ago. We have all of Twitter indexed, meaning our users have access to the best, most accurate view of the world’s social conversation on the planet.”
