Dataminr gives us access to some big local breaking news stories, and allows us to interact with users on social media to better understand what's going on and event get pictures or video for our use.
What do you dislike?
There are a ton of dataminr alerts we get that don't apply to us and that we have no use for. So we have to sort of weed out the important stuff at times.
Recommendations to others considering the product
I would definitely recommend dataminr to other news organizations for two reasons: it allows you to interact with people experiencing breaking news, and it allows you to get national and international news stories quicker.
What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?
Mainly reporting breaking news and trying to interact with people who are experiencing the breaking news. The main benefit is that we can better understand what's happening by interacting with the user experiencing it.
