Thoora Launches Real-Time News Aggregator

News aggregation startup Thoora is celebrating its public release just one day after ReadWriteWeb’s Real-Time Summit. In June, we wrote about the fact that CNN was hours behind Twitter in reporting news from Tehran. As real-time services continue to trump traditional media outlets, companies like Thoora have jumped on the chance to build a better news source. Since Thoora’s recent demo at TC50, reviewers are already questioning whether the company can survive in what is proving to be a crowded space.

Based out of Toronto, Thoora indexes stories from across the web and categorizes them under 25 verticals including science, technology, video games, mobile, world politics and television. Similar to Techmeme, Thoora aggregates real-time news stories; however, in addition the company also provides an open analysis of real-time trackbacks.

Thoora aggregates interesting posts from a variety of different verticals in what resembles a Digg-like news dashboard. However, instead of displaying the number of in-community “diggs”, Thoora displays “reactions”. Reactions entail the number of news stories, blog posts, tweets and comments that can be linked to a particular story. Stories with the most reactions rise to the top of the list, whereas less popular stories remain lost in the news river ether.

ReadWriteWeb recently recognized Thoora on our top 100 real-time web companies. To check out the service, visit thoora.com.
