larger networks being more complex , what the meme would not show is relinks to the information outside of twitter and further external dissemination . very interesting indeed

I am a junkie for this kind of thing. I will now spend the next week and a half trying to understand the human mind better by exploring what this site has to offer. I will then lose my job, which will make my wife and kids leave me. Eventually the dog will die from starvation and i will be a ruined and broken man.
We also plan to use Truthy to detect political smears, astroturfing, misinformation, and other social pollution. While the vast majority of memes arise in a perfectly organic manner, driven by the complex mechanisms of life on the Web, some are engineered by the shady machinery of high-profile congressional campaigns. Truthy uses a sophisticated combination of text and data mining, social network analysis, and complex networks models. To train our algorithms, we leverage crowdsourcing: we rely on users like you to flag injections of forged grass-roots activity. Therefore, click on the Truthy button when you see a suspicious meme!
