Tweetstorm Chaser

While Twitter has long been known for the limited length permitted for tweets, in reality, users have developed a pattern known as a “tweetstorm,” in which a big idea is presented in a series of linked tweets. Many of these tweetstorms are as interesting as op-ed columns or medium posts, but they are at risk of being lost in the sea of tweets. This project will address the question: how might we better surface high quality tweetstorms for a broader audience?
