We introduce a tool that supports knowledge workers who want to gain insights from a tweet collection, but due to time constraints cannot go over all tweets. Our system first pre-processes, de-duplicates, and clusters the tweets. The detected clusters are presented to the expert as so-called information threads. Subsequently, based on the information thread labels provided by the expert, a classifier is trained that can be used to classify additional tweets. As a case study, the tool is evaluated on a tweet collection based on the key terms ‘genocide’ and ‘Rohingya’. The average precision and recall of the classifier on six classes is 0.83 and 0.82 respectively. At this level of performance, experts can use the tool to manage tweet collections efficiently without missing much information.
