A tool to verify Tweet screenshots

Project description

Verify Tweet

Fake tweet images can be generated using a preset meme template from websites like: TweetGen, Prank Me Not and Simitator . Verification of such tweets takes a manual work to find the user, scroll through their timeline and matching. A viral fake tweet image can prove crucial at a time.

A fake tweet screenshot looks very convincing, misleading the general public. For example:

Tweet 1 Tweet 2
alt text alt text

Verify Tweet attempts to resolve the problem by letting users upload such tweet screenshots and verify if the user actually tweeted or not. A combination of Image processing, Natural language processing as well as Twitter Search API makes this possible.
