Just got word that the very cool London-based service retagger has started working with Gnip to reduce the number of calls they make to data providers. Here’s what co-founder Nicholas Smit has to say:
Retaggr aggregates your online identity into an interactive embeddable business card. Contained within it is actual content from services like flickr, twitter and so on. We’re using Gnip to receive notifications about when our users publish data on these services, so we don’t have to poll them unnecessarily. This is great for efficiency, alleviates problems with API quotas, and helps us provide a consistent level of service to our users.
Welcome Nicholas and the Retaggr team!
