MIDS Capstone Project Summer 2019


With all the noise around growing division and polarization worldwide, we often encounter unsubstantiated, qualitative statements about the increasing temperature of public discourse. But how do we, as a society, change something that is not measured? 

That’s where Outrage|Us comes in.

Outrage|Us provides a regular, target-specific measure of anger and hate speech on Twitter over time. Intended for journalists, activists, policy makers, and social scientists who want objective and consistent analysis rather than anecdotes, vague and sporadic polling and generic positive/negative sentiment analysis, Outrage|Us will cut through the noise.
