DescriptionWhenever news breaks the Internet is flooded with content. First-hand pictures and videos, reaction, and even intentional lies and propaganda are all published at incredible rates. The information produced creates a firehose too big for anyone to drink from, and without a verification process no one really knows if what they're seeing is accurate or not. Grasswire solves this problem by constantly pulling in social media about a chosen topic and displaying the things that are gaining traction in real-time. Users can then collaboratively curate (upvote) and fact-check the content. The Grasswire engine takes their inputs and creates a self-updating, autonomous news source. Imagine the Internet forming one giant newsroom, deciding what's important and what's accurate in real-time, and collaboratively producing a thoroughly vetted news website. That's Grasswire.Grasswire is the news by all of us.
