IBM Adds Tweets to Its Cloud By Partnering Up With Twitter


Earlier this week, IBM announced that it had begun a partnership with Twitter that will integrate the massive amount of data created by Twitter’s tweets into its cloud applications.

This partnership means the two companies will team up to build their own applications to help businesses make better decisions based on the data they’re getting from Twitter.

Companies will have a constant flow of tweets, photos and videos available to use in IBM’s cloud services.

IBM had previously teamed up with other cloud-focused partners, including an agreement with Apple around mobile software and their iOS devices, like the iPhones and iPads. Then it also announced this summer that they joined efforts with SAP, which will allow their software apps to run on IBM’s SoftLayer cloud computing service.
