Description

Using a users alias, searches Wikpedia for edits made with the same username. This is useful when we are 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

Phrase --> Tweets --> Twitter Affiliation --> Alias ==> Wikipedia Edits

==> To Wikipedia Edits
--> Related Transform

Example

We can start with the phrase "president". From the phrase we can retrieve tweets containg this word, as well as the Twitter Affiliations for the accounts that sent out the tweet. We can then convert the Twitter account's handle to an alias, which we can use to search Wikipedia for edits under that name.
