The following bachelor thesis provides a new approach regarding the storage and management of unstructured data based on the usage of social media concepts. Information is stored persistently without a predefined data structure. Due to the addition of meta-data using hashtags and mentions the information can be structured in an intuitive manner. Today's users are used to those concepts because of the microblogging platform Twitter. Therefore no further user knowlegde is needed in order to use the application. A server was designed to contain most of the provided functionality. This way the application is independent from a specific client implementation. In addition to that being implemented in Node.js the application guarantees high scalability.
