We present GFL-Web, a web-based interface for syntactic dependency annotation with the lightweight FUDG/GFL formalism. Syntactic attachments are specified in GFL notation and visualized as a graph. A one-day pilot of this work-flow with 26 annotators established thateven novices were, with a bit of training, able to rapidly annotate the syntax of English Twitter messages. The open-source tool is easily installed and configured; it is available at:
