I'm currently querying Twitter to access trend data. I'm looking for an open alternative to source trend information. The main question is:
What's trending today?
I'd love to move away from using Twitter as the analytic tool and its very low request limit. Looking forward to the community's insights, thanks for any help.
I'm looking alternative streams of information about trends other than twitter. I'm very interested in sorting and categorizing trends by location. I'd prefer not to have to employ html scraping techniques.
If html scraping is the only options, which methods suit?
