Interesting story on why the @czahor made this: “After graduating college, I moved to West Hollywood to study improv comedy at The Groundlings. I used my Twitter feed to test material, all of which was humorous and well-intended within the context of my community. Several years and career changes later, after having success in the startup world and battling Lyme disease, I landed my dream job: CTO of Jeb Bush's political operations. Unfortunately, my Twitter feed was unearthed, spun completely out of context to make me appear as someone I am certainly not, and I lost my job. I created Clear to make sure situations like mine never happen to anyone ever again.”

@czahor Interesting concept. Would you mind providing a few more details on the approach and the role of Watson here? How does this work for images?

Ethan CzahorMaker@czahor
@johnstrumbos Sure. Watson tells us if any piece of text is overly positive or negative, and which words contribute to that. It's a simple API. All the magic is on their end. No image scanning yet, but that'll probably happen soon.

@johnstrumbos @czahor I can understand that "shit" "fuck" and other slang generate alerts, but "teammate" ? 85% ? :D
