Qaster, a social Q&A platform by WIV Labs

With the average number of tweets hitting 500 million a day, it is no wonder that Twitter has become a gold mine of data and information for various companies all over the world. Monitoring tweets and conversations have become a way for companies to watch for trends and issues that consumers are concerned with in real-time, and deal with them in a timely manner.

Understanding the potential of the data within the millions of tweets, South Korea-based WIV Labs launched Qaster, a social Q&A service, at the end of last month. Qaster aims to mine Twitter for useful conversations by archiving questions and answers generated on Twitter, and makes the data searchable on the Qaster website. Answers to a tweeted question are displayed in a chronological manner, making it easy for users to follow the conversation.
