Topics, Entities and Readership Metrics in the News API

The Twingly News API provides topics and entities with scores for article relevance and estimates the unique potential readership for each article based on various factors.


For you to easily extract the most important information from each news article, we include topics and entities in our API output. You can also search for relevant topics and entities in our News Search API.

The topics are based on the IPTC Media Topics taxonomy. It is developed specifically for the categorization of media content and is constantly updated with new topics, on top of the 1,200 terms that are currently in use. With each topic follows a score that shows the overall confidence that the article is related to the topic.

The types of entities that we support are person, location and organization. With each entity, you also get the Wikidata ID, for you to get easy access to more information about the entity.


For each of the 3 million daily news articles in our News API, you will get metrics that estimate the unique potential readership. These metrics change over time, and you can get updated Readership metrics during the lifecycle of an article to see its attraction with readers.

This is a unique way to measure online article readership and has been the most sought-after feature in media monitoring for a long time.

The potential readership is a combination of the number of visitors to each news source and the lifetime of each article in the different sections at the source. We also consider the appeal of other articles from that news source, as well as the potential readership of articles at other sources.

This gives us the confidence to provide you with metrics for the potential readership for all online news articles in the world, available together with the full text of the articles in our News APIs.
