I use SAS at work but do not work for the SAS company in anyway. I  
like what I do for work though. I am only a user/power user/programmer  
so I am not promoting this software more realizing my programming  
skills may help me to research social media if this tool is useful.

Here is SAS's advert from

With the rapid growth of social media – from blogs and discussion  
groups to Facebook and Twitter – businesses are looking to make sense  
of this new stream of data, better understand their customers, monitor  
what’s being said about their brands and products, and predict the  
best marketing channels.

With 34 years of experience in high-end business analytics, SAS will  
unveil a new approach to harnessing and integrating social media data  
to make better and faster business decisions, improve marketing, and  
build stronger and lasting customer relationships: SAS® Social Media
