Microblogging site Twitter can be a great powerful means to get the forecast of criminal activity, as the researchers from the University of Virginia, USA informed. They had reached this decision analyzing 15 lakh twits.
Researcher Mathew Garber said-There was no connection between twitter usage and crime in the hypothesis of the initial stage of the research. I am going to commit a crime or may commit a crime-no one certainly will inform this to anybody. But, it is possible to get a forecast regarding this issue from any social activity or any other incident shared by the users.
