About SocialDatabase

SocialDatabase has developed a software platform that enriches public Twitter data. Our custom code is able to surface job roles, personal interests, behaviors and more. The result is a new way to build audiences with relevancy not seen before. SocialDatabase helps brands target more effectively on Twitter by serving content to those people that are actually interested in it.

The SocialDatabase platform has envisioned a whole new kind of audience: the SuperAudiences. These custom built user-groups are super relevant, and most importantly, more receptive. That means media spend goes further, and engagement relevance is improved. This is our purpose, creating audiences that welcome your brand.
