Illuminating

Helping Journalists Cover Social Media In The Presidential Campaign

Go Beyond View and Share Counts

lluminating is a computational journalism project with a goal to empower journalists covering political campaigns.

Political reporters must cover not only stump speeches, campaign events, and TV ads, but also what is happening on social media. Unfortunately, the sheer volume of information that flows through social media platforms, makes it challenging to report on accurately and comprehensively. Our goal is to help journalists with this important work by providing a useable yet comprehensive summary of the content and sentiment of important online political conversation.
