Description

This Transform searches Wikipedia for edits made with an investigative subjects Alias (username). This is useful when tracking a user who uses a single username across multiple platforms. The results can be unreliable as we cannot be sure that two users using the same Alias are the same person. E.g. A user with the Twitter handle "Andrew15" might be a different to the person to the one using a Wikipedia account with the username "Andrew15".


Typical Use Case

Find Wiki pages edited by a user.
