Tool: Dynamic Network Analysis

Source: André Panisson

Description: Panisson created a real-time infographic mapping tweets and retweets the day Egypt’s Mubarak was forced out of office. While the visualization in and of itself is interesting. As a tool for verification  it is particularly fascinating on a few levels. It helps you see the flow of information, or misinformation and track it back to its source. In addition, it helps you access who influential people are in a discussion, offering you leads and potential sources. Panisson described the project this way, “It was very interesting to see, in real time, the exact moment when Tahrir Square, from a mass protest demonstration, has been transformed in a giant party, and the burst in the Twitter’s activity. It was like covering in real time a virtual event, a big event that was happening in the Twitter virtual world.”

We heard horrific stories of American female journalists being attacked during the Egyptian revolution in 2011. There are many other cases we did not hear about because the victims are not Western. They don’t have the same access and publicity; they may not be as comfortable talking openly about an issue that’s considered private and sensitive in some cultures, or they may worry that any frank discussion could portray them as weak and incapable of braving the dangers of field journalism.
