There are reports Twitter has decided to make it easier for social-media monitoring companies to access billions of tweet and use it for marketing data.

Starting next month, a cloud-based service will allow companies to analyze more than two years of tweets.

Trends in what people tweet about would then be used for marketing purposes.

Twitter has not commented on the report.
