Feb 28, 2020

During Sudan's December 2018 – October 2019 revolution and change of government, UNDP Sudan explored social media (Twitter) as a big data source to monitor social opinions, sentiment and thematic demands for change.

This experimental and low-cost attempt provided a near real-time snapshot throughout various phases of unrest, highlighting emerging trends and Sudanese sentiments on topmost priority issues, as well as details regarding the role of women in the revolution.
