via Echofon in reply to edsu

@edsu Fully agree. Human in the loop makes total sense, also common “stop hashtags”, like stop words now. Internationally for all languages.

via Echofon in reply to edsu

@edsu (In no way saying current settings’re perfect.) Long-term, article analysis needed & better understanding of article creation process.

via Echofon in reply to edsu

@edsu Getting these thresholds “right” is incredibly hard. Also very much a matter of taste and how “breaking” you require the news to be.

via Echofon in reply to edsu

@edsu Yes. Also surprised, but breaking news conditions (see paper or settings in app) weren’t fulfilled. Mostly ≥3 concurrent editors one.

@edsu Possible: let @WikiLiveMon detect breaking news, extract hashtags from rel. microposts (based on article titles), follow $TWTR stream.

@remagio @edsu Sure, you can simply adapt github.com/tomayac/wikipe… to make @WikiLiveMon cover only part of the Wikiverse.

via Echofon in reply to remagio

@edsu @lbjay You could adapt the “email” function (link last tweet) & extract hashtags from found microposts; then archive to DB (or email).
