According to AllThingsD, Tumblr has launched a new feature for those obsessed with data: a data firehose. Similar to Twitter’s firehose, this will supply analysts and developers with an immediate, unending, full-featured stream of data from the service. The data will be only publicly-available data, and is currently only provided to Gnip. However, Tumblr is also working on services for users that includes analytics and social media monitoring tools, which are directly tied to the firehose.
