Truthy is a research project that helps you understand how memes spread online. We collect tweets from Twitter and analyze them. With our statistics, images, movies, and interactive data, you can explore these dynamic networks.
Our first application was the study of astroturf campaigns in elections. Currently, we're extending our focus to several themes. Browse the collection on the Memes page. Check out the Movie tool to browse and create animations of meme networks. ·
