Monitoring Disasters

Crowdsourcing: Study suggests how to best monitor disasters using Twitter

The scientist Manuel Garcia-Herranz and his team at the Autonomous University of Madrid, Spain have elaborated an approach how to most effectively use the social media channel Twitter in disaster situations. Their technique involves small groups of "highly connected Twitter users as ‘sensors’ to detect the emergence of new ideas. They point out that this works because highly connected individuals are more likely to receive new ideas before ordinary users."
