An Incident in one part of the world can now have resounding effects everywhere because of how fast news travels thanks to social media. This often causes polarization in public sentiments and can result in hate crimes, hate speech etc. towards certain sections of society.
What it does
To start with, we look at tweets related to the recent incidents in Iran and perform Sentiment Analysis on them. We visualize how polarized opinions are and track how they change as time passes.
How we built it
We used tweepy API to get tweets related to Iran, Mahsa Amini, used Vader to perform Sentiment Analysis on them, and use a Flask Application to display our visualizations
