Microsoft announced May 27 a new social-networking initiative, dubbed "Project Emporia," developed through its FUSE Labs. Currently offered in Alpha Preview, the application lets users monitor Twitter streams in real time without needing an actual Twitter account.

"Project Emporia enables a personalized search experience over publically available social network data," reads an explanation on the project's Website. "It lets people browse, find, and discover highly relevant information on topics they are interested in from the flood of content on Twitter - without the need to select Twitter feeds or follow people on Twitter."
