Introduction to IEEE Awarded UC Senior Projects 2012

Project: Twipolitico

Students: Chris Nixon, Jorge Moscat and Yemi Oyeditan





Twipolitico is a web-based application working to capture Twitter’s feelings towards the two, 2012 Presidental Candidate nominess, Barack Obama (Democrat) and Mitt Romney (Republican). Using the data we collect from Twitter and our own ranking algorithm, we look to get our own twist on the candidate’s “approval score”. We are using real-time sentiment analysis and influence analysis to calculate the scores. You can visit us at www.twipolitico.com.
