Fitzhugh et al – 2016 – Spatio-temporal filtering techniques for the detection of disaster-related communication

Summary: Quantitative study that explores a protocol for spatio-temporal filtering of user-generated natural disaster content (referred to here as informal communication) on Twitter.

Synthesis: Temporal filtering is operationalized as tweet timestamps and successive periods of 24-hr clock time. Some methodological decisions in this paper give me pause in citing it in my own work.
