Los Angeles – JustSpotted, a start-up that plans to track the
last sightings of over 7,000 celebrities using Twitter, has raised an
undisclosed amount of funding from early Twitter investor Ron Conway, according
to The Hollywood Reporter.
The site uses "’natural language’ filters to
figure out which tweets pertain to celebrity sightings."
The company says it wont provide
addresses of celebrities’ whereabouts — but will provide details like a
restaurant’s name, city and virtual pinpoint on a map.
JustSpotted will also
aggregate celebrity news stories.
Update: A Twitter spokesperson contacted DMW with the following statement:
then known as Scoopler, had previously licensed Twitter’s ‘firehose’
data feed of all public tweets for its real-time search engine, Scoopler.com. JustSpotted.com is not the product we licensed, and we have terminated their agreement."
