Shawn JonesShawn Jones of Virginia Beach, Virginia, is a computer science student at Old Dominion University in Norfolk, Virginia. His project, titled “Indicators That Tweeting May Improve The Detection Of News Articles For Web Archives,” explores the potential relationship between social media sharing of news articles and how quickly those articles are identified by web crawlers as candidates for archiving. The project sought indicators to support the hypothesis that articles shared via social media are more likely to be discovered by archiving crawling software, and as a result more likely to be archived.
