I want to fit in

I Want to Fit in is a satirical location-based service that guides the user through making the necessary modifications to their personality to match the average personality in an area, so they can better mingle with the local population. To find the average personality for a location, the service analyzes a large collection of local tweets using machine learning. In an era when the perceived inability to assimilate is being weaponized by xenophobes to deny people mobility, I Want to Fit in creates a space to reflect on all the invisible pressures migrants face when participating in a new culture.
