Social media analysis

Experimental feature

The information below is extracted by an experimental JRC system to analyze Twitter messages for the occurance of secondary effects for earthquakes and tsunamis. This feature is currently not available for other disaser types.

Twitter reaction

The graph above shows the number of tweets per minute just before and just after the earthquake. The higher the values and the larger the difference between before and after, the more the earthquake was felt by the local population. Note that after 20 to 30 minutes, many tweets will come from areas not near the earthquake. These indicate general interest in this event rather than local impact.

Tweets mentioning secondary effects

The graph above shows tweets for keywords related to common secondary effects. A large difference between tweets counts before and after the event for any of these keywords is a good indication that the secondary effect occurred.
