Twitter Integration and Content Moderation in GDACSmobile

Link D, Hellingrath B, De Groeve T


Abstract
Recent years have shown that mobile devices and Twitter can play a significant role in providing real-time data from disaster-affected areas to disaster managers. Against this background we present a workflow for Twitter integration into a disaster management information system, and a concept for content moderation that can increase the quality of disseminated information.
