Turtle is a software that allows following the development of a controversial issue in the media space, collecting and displaying information and the documents spread the various actors involved in it. The project aims at enhancing the exploration of news and document spread over long periods of time.
With adequate tools the traces of a controversy emerge and they can be observed. This data gathering process finds in the Internet a precious box, which contains the elements to reassemble the network and the dynamics of a controversy. Turtle, from a technological point of view, posits itself above information and discursive flows developed over the Internet. It is made up by a series of tools and devices able to explore controversies and could be defined as an observation environment of the discursive fragments flowing through the Internet.
