Clusters / Social Media add-on

Clusters
Clusters

Heatwaves are very dangerous yet responses that only focus on technical aspect and adaptation, coupled with growing urbanization makes them more so. Regarding the role of social media during past crises, it can empower citizens to face the heat as a community. Clusters is an add-on to twitter that gets activated during heatwaves by mining heat-related keywords. It places users of the area in different levels of groups (neighborhood, district, city, etc) and by categorizing tweets based on user activity at each level, it localizes information and action around the topic of heat, connecting citizens for better community support during the heat.
