American Newspaper chooses Dutch Twitter Tool

The website of the Daily Herald in Chicago Wednesday has been making use of the software “Crowdynews”of the Dutch company Elkoog in Groningen.

This software automatically places relevant tweets from Twitter under news items on the site of the American newspaper, reported Elkoog.

The Dutch company is dedicated to providing access to information on social media. “Crowdynews” shows an automated carousel of comments that people leave on Twitter about news they read on the internet.

The Daily Herald is the first American newspaper that uses the software. Technical Director Edwin Kuipers from Elkoog hopes to get a foothold for more publishers in the United States.

According to him, “Crowdynews” generates more visitors who also stay longer on news sites, making the application attractive to advertisers.
