Four main axes are highlighted on the platform:

This analysis will be based on data extracted from Twitter and the platform will offer to visualize the temporal evolution of discussions on social networks, the topics of these discussions, but also the most influential hashtags and profiles.
- an “infodemia” gathering fake news shared on social networks
It will draw up a summary of the false information circulating on the net and explain how to deconstruct these false speeches.
