Pros: A very streamlined method of generating volume estimates for tweets around a topic. Provides good estimates matched with clear pricing. Quick to use and easy to access support, for fielding questions about functionality and so forth. I used the software in conjunction with Discover Text for an academic research project around tree pathogens in the UK.

Cons: Not much to say. It did what I wanted/needed. Completely off the top of my head, perhaps the software would be enhanced if it included a function that automatically suggested extensions to your search criteria, based on what initial retrieval produced. This would enable users to consider, for example, related areas of tweet that they had not initially envisaged.

Pros: Excellent metadata, very quick response from the owner and his crew when I had technical or interface difficulties. Since it was created by academics, it answers better to academics needs

Cons: Navigation is not very intuitive, all can be sorted out with the self-help tutorial videos though.

Overall: Extraction and analysis of Twitter data for my PhD and other projects in the academia

Pros: If you need a very specific historical dataset, there is no easier way of accessing it. No need for signing up to a multi-month or volume enterprise license. Great for small, ad hoc dataset acquisition.

Cons: The interface takes a while to figure out. It's not entirely intuitive, partly because the platform does many more things that just acquire datasets, which is what I used it for.

Overall: Super quick, affordable social media dataset acquisition.
