Truthy.indiana.edu to search, identify smear tactics, Twitter-bombs through election runup

Streaming Twitter data acquired in real-time is matched against keywords to exclude tweets unlikely to contain political discussion and extract memes (mentions, hash tags, and urls). Memes of interest are isolated by considering only those that have just undergone significant changes in volume, or those that account for a significant portion of the total volume. Memes are then inserted in a database and Twitter API is used to obtain more information on each. Credit: Indiana University Center for Complex Networks and Systems Research
