brizzlyThing Labs, San Francisco-based startup that makes social networking applications, released today an API called Let’s Be Trends that lets developers procure information about trending topics on Twitter.

The move comes on the heels of the private beta launch of Thing Labs’ Twitter application — Brizzly — last month, which features a section of trending topics on Twitter and explanations from Brizzly users about why those specific topics are so popular. The Let’s Be Trends read-only API opens up that data to developers.

Other apps that gather information on trending Twitter topics include Trendistic and Trendrr.

Thing Labs, which began life as Plinky, is headed up by Jason Shellen.
