EPL Transfer Aggregator

Taras Tataryn

EPL Transfer Aggregator is a web application that tracks EPL (English Premier League) soccer transfer
rumors through Twitter. The overall goal is to provide users with a regularly updated page of transfer
rumors for EPL teams. However, with the abundance of tweets sent out daily by British reporters and
newspapers, many of these rumors can be false. The EPL Transfer Aggregator, based on historical
accuracy of reporters’ tweets and a tier system, will have a Transfer Reliability Guide to help users
decide which rumors and reporters to trust. The user can then select a team and see the latest tweets
and rumors from a select list of reporters to better see who is reporting on what. Finally, the web
application will also provide graphs and statistics to better visualize transfer rumors, reports, etc. in the
world of Twitter.
