In 2013 and 2014, @Verdade are spearheading their election monitoring campaign with a tool called Citizen Desk, a tool built by us folks here at Sourcefabric that has already won the African News Innovation Award. Free, open source and available to everyone, once finished, Citizen Desk will allow any organisation to collect, verify, reward and publish reports from citizens that arrive through Facebook, Twitter, YouTube and, most importantly, SMS. @Verdade will use Citizen Desk to monitor all these incoming feeds, begin a verification process, save notes in a contact database and then curate all of this information in a contextualised, dynamic article.
