    SeoNext Trendistic is a tool that allows you to track trends on Twitter, similarly to what Google Trends does for Google searches. It gathers tweets as they are posted, filters redundant ones and compiles the rest into one-hour intervals.Really a great post.Thanks for sharing such an important information with us.

  2. Tresndistic sounds good. Does it just provide the current trends or even provide statistics on current vs past trends?
