HackCU 2016 - Dalvonic

2nd Place Contestants in the Twitter Competition

Languages/Technologies used:

HTML/CSS, JavaScript

My Contributions

  • Designed both main page and graph page
  • Designed the graph page using parallax

Note: My contributions to this project were focused around design due to the 36 hour time constraint.

Purpose/Project Description:

Dalvonic's main goal was to tackle the problem of echo chambers and, particularly, in-grouping. Through social network graph analyses, it's very strongly evident that people follow and remain exclusively in the company of very like-minded individuals online.

We aimed to expose users to people who share opposing views to them and prompt users to consider information from ulterior, opposing sources based on sentimental and subjectivity analysis of their tweets (with a CNN classifier).
