It is important to collect and spread accurate information quickly during disasters. Therefore, utilizing Twitter at the time of accidents has been gaining attention in recent year. In this paper, we propose a real-time information sharing system during disaster based on the utilization of Twitter. The proposed system consists of two sub-systems, a disaster information tweeting system that automatically attaches user's current geo-location information (address) and the hashtag of the form “#(municipality name) disaster,” and a disaster information mapping system that displays neighboring disaster-related tweets on a map.
