Thanks Andrej

Hi All,

Quick update: we collected just over 182K tweets on Friday between 5am to
7pm (Manila local time) and automatically filtered this down to 35,175
tweets based on relevancy and uniqueness. These 35K tweets are being
uploaded to the TweetClicker a few thousand tweets at a time. We realize
the Clicker has gotten slow due to heavy traffic, so we're working on
fixing that, thanks for your patience. Our SBTF partners are busy
geo-coding and analyzing the early results from the Clicker as per the
information needs of OCHA Philippines.

We’ll be repeating all this for just one more day tomorrow (Saturday) and
depending on volume of collected pictures, may also launch the
ImageClicker.

Thanks for your continued support.

Cheers,

Patrick, Jus, Ji, Hemant, Andrew
