The News Tweet Game

In the era of "Fake News" (recently named the 2017 Word of the Year by Collins Dictionary), how different news outlets cover the same story has become a hot topic. The News Tweet Game takes away any inherent bias users may have about a particular network and puts their content front and center.

The News Tweet Game was built with Create React App, the Twitter API, the Firebase Realtime Database, and the NPM Twitter Library. Tweets are filtered so that Tweets with the name of the network are not included (for example, a @CNN Tweet with "CNN" in it will not be shown). Retweets are also excluded.
