How does PoliDashboard Work?

PoliDashboard can help us make sense of our new digital 'town hall'

PoliDashboard brings three different systems together in order to measure political discourse on Twitter. The first is a data collection mechanism that collects tweets containing politically relevant hashtags in real time. The second is an indexing system that breaks up an individual tweet into 200 data points for analysis.
