Improved Sentiment Analysis Accuracy





​​​​​​​Our data science team has improved the way sentiment is tracked with an industry leading Deep Learning model. This will ensure you’re gathering the most accurate positive and negative mentions.

What does this mean for your Alerts?

  • More accurate positive and negative mentions
  • Sentiment labelling improvements in your feed, insights centre and reports
  • Less time spent doing manual positive and negative sentiment changes

The Sentiment Analysis algorithm change will be in effect on July 1, 2021.

If you want to learn more about how you can optimize your use of Sentiment Analysis, visit our help centre.

Pausing Alerts





We're giving you the ability to control your mentions usage. You can now directly pause and resume any alert directly from each alert setting. Pausing an alert will temporarily stop any mention fetching until you decide to resume it.

If you want to archive data from an alert without fetching mentions, or perhaps monitor a specific topic periodically -- then this feature is for you.

Note: As mentions are not fetched while your alert is paused, you will not be able to retrieve those mentions later on. Make sure you are ok with not getting data during paused periods before using this feature.

You will find additional information in our Help Center.
