RTreporter was originally designed to be a tool for reporters, journalists and editors. It is hard now a days to find a news room where the staff is not using any form of Twitter dashboard to monitor politicians or other sources.
The added value of RTreporter in the newsroom is that you are not limited by the amount of people you are able to follow through your dashboard. RTreporter will pick up any tweet concerning a politician or celebrity that is being adopted by the crowd.
The “News Dashboard” is configured in such a manner that it will pick up on a large amount of subjects through a smart algorithm. The filter keeps out most static from spam or slang. The filter also rates al of the subjects on their newsworthiness, hence a subject can be discussed on a large scale but have no journalistic value or something is talked about on a small scale but be very important.
RTreporter has been extensively tested in newsrooms and it has proven to be able to find multiple items a day, faster than the competition or that would otherwise not have been found. Furthermore the INSIGHT functionality offers a unique portal to eyewitnesses.
