Nook vs. Kindle via Twitter Sentiment
TwitterSentiment – this sentiment analysis tool provides interesting information using Twitter status updates. Since it seems like this holiday season’s most desired gadget was one eReader or another I decided to ask TS about the overall sentiments for B&N Nook and Amazon Kindle. I can see the potential usefulness for this type of application.
B&N Nook – is there a problem? To be fair, it is a small set of data, now.
Kindle – 53% Positive, 47% Negative (here we have a larger set of data)
Also it will be interesting to monitor Apple Tablet (all green) and its rumored name iSlate (in the red). There is really not enough data at the moment though.
Twitter Sentiment and a like has the potential for helping companies to test the water before coming up with new product name, during product launch, and after product adoption. TS also provide a graph view of the data so you can examine it over different time frames. TweetFeel a similar application type shows this data in real-time with aggregation.
Any more ideas for how to use it?
Btw, I still love my Kindle.
