The Importance


Nowadays, Twitter is one of the most direct ways that public figures communicate with their audience. Donald Trump's 2016 presidential campaign was fueled by his Twitter, and Donald Trump is not the only public figure who uses Twitter extensively.

Every single United States senator has a Twitter account, and almost every other public figure does as well. Twitter has become a mediator between public figures and the people, however Twitter is unstable. It allows for Tweets to be deleted (allowing for silent retractions of unpopular statements, such as some of Trump's derogatory remarks against women), and entire accounts (such as Anthony Weiner) have disappeared. Other controversial accounts, such as alt-right leader Richard Spencer and many other alt-right nationalists, have been taken down by Twitter.

PolitiTweet solves this problem. Less than half a second after a tweet is created by a public figure, it is archived in PolitiTweet's database. It then is persistent: if it is deleted off Twitter, it is still in the database and can be viewed, cited, and shared. Entire terminated accounts can still exist within the database.
