#geiger : Radiation Monitoring Bots on Twitter for Nuclear Post-Accident Situations

Abstract : In the last decade, people have increasingly relied on social media platforms such as Twitter to share information on the response to a natural or a man-made disaster. This paper focuses on the aftermath of the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear disaster. Since the disaster, victims and volunteers have been sharing relevant information about radiation measurements by means of social media. The aim of this research is to explore the diffusion of information produced and shared by Twitter bots, to understand the degree of popularity of these sources and to check if these bots deliver original radiation measurements.
