This presentation will focus on the intersection of early-warning systems and the Twitter platform. The central 'data story' we'll be discussing are the 2017 wildfires north of Los Angeles. Along the way, we'll dig into some data, attempt some live Twitter Platform demos and take a world tour of example early-warning systems. We'll also explore some recently announced Twitter APIs that are now available to developers.
