Single purpose API
Sorry, No followers
Topsy, the Twitter search indexer that recently raised another $15 million, now lets users zero in on tweets mentioning videos. According to Topsy, the trending videos are the "most popular videos shared by influential users within the first 24 hours of their release." The feature is also available in its Topsy API, though currently undocumented.
Publisher Pearson recently launched its new API program with three of its top titles. The new platform provides a common set of tools that developers have grown accustomed to: documentation, sample code, app showcase, blog, forum and FAQs, for example. Pearson has a lot of content to pick from with its core offerings, as well as its numerous partners, and they decided to start by launching three very different content APIs: FT Press API, Longman Dictionary API and Eyewitness Guide to London API.
