Abstract

Contemporary political communication is a multi- and cross-platform process. Because of its complexity, new tools are necessary to monitor and understand it. We present a system that ingests, stores, and processes political data from Twitter, Facebook, and online news articles. We visualize the data in the form of a freely accessible online dashboard. The political dashboard (https://political-dashboard.com/) aims to provide online political transparency and assist researchers, journalists, and the general public in understanding the German online political landscape.
