Why add new Topics?

We create new Topics when our system identifies emerging subjects, when requested by our customers, and occasionally to improve clarity of earlier versions.

For this month of March 2021 evolutions, one of the two Topics with the largest community is Black Indigenous And People Of Color. This and Gag Order (in 11th position, beyond top 10) reflect long term social evolutions and activism.

Finally, Vaccine Hesitancy is obviously on everyone’s mind as the campaigns ramp up. It replaces the more dualistic Anti Vaccination (the previous Topic it displaced) as perceptions have evolved towards shades of grey.

What is the Cronycle Expertise Network?

When it comes to looking for specific information, the best is to seek out the source that has the most knowledge, expertise and experience on said topic. Many of these experts connect together in loose topical communities, and are constantly being monitored by their pairs. Cronycle users these interactions, in particular in Twitter, to identify influencers and communities that form the Cronycle Expertise Network.
