Social media analysis has attracted quite some interest recently. Typical questions are identifying current trends, rating the impact or influence of users, summarizing what people are saying on some topic or brand, and so on. One challenge is the enormous amount of data you need to process. Current approaches often need to filter the data first and then do the actual analysis after the event. However, ideally you would want to be able to look into the stream of social media updates in real-time as the event unfolds, and not a few days or weeks later when you've processed your data. We will showcase the real-time social media analysis engine developed by TWIMPACT in cooperation with the TU Berlin. You will be able to look at the current trends on Twitter in real-time, in addition to being able to have a look at the last year which we will bring in a pre-analyzed form, such that you can zoom in on the historic events of this year like the revolutions in Egypt, or Libya, and so on.
