Supporting someone on Twitter with Samaritans Radar App | Samaritans | Cyberbullying Prevention | Scoop.it

Samaritans Radar App gives you the chance to support people on Twitter who may be struggling to cope.

Bill Warters's insight:

This app ingests your twitter followers list and then tracks content among your followers that might suggest someone is feeling suicidal or depressed and it makes this visible to only you, in case you missed the pattern in the stream of tweets rolling by. Groups or organizations that often use terms that might trigger a flag can be whitelisted and thus ignored.
