About culture

News portals and social media provide indirect insight into cultural events, and everyone has the right to express their opinion. “Delfi Commentary” is a colloquial description of a hostile commentary with grammatical errors. It comes from the title of one of the most popular news sites (with a yellow tinge) delfi.lv.

The original record is preserved in the comments published on Instagram, while the “average comment” is generated from the comments on the Twitter account with the help of the algorithm, which provides an “average” insight into the commentators’ thoughts on cultural events in Latvia. Source comments have been selected from various popular Latvian portals.
