Twitter acquires big data startup

Twitter has acquired Lucky Sort, a Portland, Oregon-based startup that deals in big data.

Lucky Sort is the company behind an engine called TopicWatch, TechCrunch reported, which discovers patterns in live data streams.

The engine uses natural language processing techniques to sift through social media, government filings, news and commentary in real time to find, summarize and analyze any text-based content, TechCrunch said.
