"The Challenge
In Twitter’s opt-in geolocation feature, most Kenyans and by extension the world prefers to geotag only 1% of their tweets. This is a great problem for Twitter applications that hope to ride on its location data.

In Nudge Theory, a concept brought to prominence by Richard Thaler, he argues that nudges are at least as effective, if not more effective, than direct instruction, legislation, or enforcement.

It is a choice architecture that alters people’s behavior in a predictable way without economic incentives. Can we nudge people to geotag tweets?

Predict which tweets will be geotagged, and find levers that can be used to nudge users to geotag their tweets."
