I'm looking for a Twitter service that does not just detect keywords (like the trending topics do), but instead deliver stories that are ranked by their popularity over a period of time.

Example: If I do a search for "car" it would not list all the tweets that contain #car, but instead, give me current relevant stories about car trade shows, new car parts, etc.

how would the service know beyond the hashtag that the 140 characters relate to car stories? – mhoran_psprep Mar 9 '12 at 13:27
The same way Facebook knows how to group status updates of multiple people talking about a topic into one update. I guess a fair amount of algorithmic know how would have to go into such a service. Link introspection surely would help to gain further insight on a topic. – keyboardsamurai Mar 9 '12 at 15:09

It seems like there are two companies doing what I requested earlier.

They rank and curate tweets, which is what I initially wanted. Unfortunately they seem to be very focused on companies.
