Rumor: Detecting Misinformation in Twitter
The micro-blogging social networking service, Twitter, is currently being used by around 271 million monthly active users. It is responsible for real-time propagation of information to its users.Expand
Automatic detection and verification of rumors on Twitter
The ability to track rumors and predict their outcomes may have practical applications for news consumers, financial markets, journalists, and emergency services, and more generally to help minimize the impact of false information on Twitter. Expand
Twitter under crisis: can we trust what we RT?
The behavior of Twitter users under an emergency situation is explored and it is shown that it is posible to detect rumors by using aggregate analysis on tweets, and that the propagation of tweets that correspond to rumors differs from tweets that spread news. Expand
