Live Monitoring 4chan Discussion Threads

EasyChair Preprint no. 6123

10 pagesDate: July 20, 2021


We have designed and implemented a web data extraction framework for live monitoring and archiving of discussions from the 4chan online community. Thanks to the deployment of an advanced version of the OxPath crawler, we were able to track the evolution of the /pol/ bilboard with higher level of precision.

Keyphrases: 4chan, Online conspiracy theories, Social Web

BibTeX entry
BibTeX does not have the right entry for preprints. This is a hack for producing the correct reference:
  author = {Ylli Prifti and Iacopo Pozzana and Alessandro Provetti},
  title = {Live Monitoring 4chan Discussion Threads},
  howpublished = {EasyChair Preprint no. 6123},

  year = {EasyChair, 2021}}
