TwitterCrowds: Techniques for Exploring Topic and Sentiment in Microblogging Data

  title={TwitterCrowds: Techniques for Exploring Topic and Sentiment in Microblogging Data},
  author={Daniel W. Archambault and Derek Greene and P{\'a}draig Cunningham},
Analysts and social scientists in the humanities and industry require techniques to help visualize large quantities of microblogging data. Methods for the automated analysis of large scale social media data (on the order of tens of millions of tweets) are widely available, but few visualization techniques exist to support interactive exploration of the results. In this paper, we present extended descriptions of ThemeCrowds and SentireCrowds, two tag-based visualization techniques for this data… 

Figures and Tables from this paper

Predictive Analytical Model for Microblogging Data Using Asset Bubble Modelling

A predictive model is proposed using the tweets generated on Twitter social media to calculate the potential of a topic in the tweets for the prediction purposes and results are better than the existing systems.

Can twitter really save your life? A case study of visual social media analytics for situation awareness

The domain experts' individual performances with the ScatterBlogs visual analytics framework, their comments about the usefulness and applicability of its capabilities, and the results of a questionnaire each participant had to complete will answer the question if and how visual analytics of social media can shape tomorrow's crisis intelligence.

Can Twitter Save Lives? A Broad-Scale Study on Visual Social Media Analytics for Public Safety

Results of a two-phase study on visual analytics of social media for public safety, in which 29 practitioners from disaster response and critical infrastructure management were asked to investigate crisis intelligence tasks based on Twitter data recorded during the 2013 German Flood are presented.

State-of-the-Art Report of Visual Analysis for Event Detection in Text Data Streams

This report summarizes the evolution of event detection in combination with visual analysis over the past 14 years and provides an overview of the state-of-the-art methods.

A survey on classification techniques for opinion mining and sentiment analysis

This paper represents a complete, multilateral and systematic review of opinion mining and sentiment analysis to classify available methods and compare their advantages and drawbacks, in order to have better understanding of available challenges and solutions to clarify the future direction.

Toward a Better Understanding of Evolving Social Networks

The author is fascinated by the automatisms at play in networks today and expresses gratitude to his supervisor, Ulrik Brandes, for fostering his passion for social networks and offering a position in his group at the University of Konstanz.

Morphable Word Clouds for Time-Varying Text Data Visualization

A novel method that uses rigid body dynamics to arrange multi-temporal word-tags in a specific shape sequence under various constraints is presented, which can generate a temporally morphable word cloud that smoothly transforms the shapes of word clouds overtime, thus yielding a pleasing time-varying visualization.

Opinion Mining Techniques and Its Applications: A Review

  • Sonia
  • Computer Science
  • 2020
An overview of opinion mining is presented and aspect extraction methodologies proposed in the literature are discussed, which show aspect extraction is the most important one.

Link prediction with social vector clocks

It is shown that computationally less expensive features can achieve the same performance in the common scenario in which the data is available as a sequence of interactions.



ThemeCrowds: multiresolution summaries of twitter usage

This paper presents a technique that summarises what collections of Twitter users are saying about certain topics over time using a large microblogging corpus, consisting of millions of tweets and over a million users.

User-Supplied Sentiments in Tweets

This paper describes a third method that can replace or complement the first two: convincing the tweet authors to explicitly express their opinion using a simple unambiguous syntax--a tag--while they tweet and reports on the experience with the PolemicTweet system where authors tag the tweets they send during conferences and TV shows.

Tweet the debates: understanding community annotation of uncollected sources

It is found that the level of Twitter activity serves as a predictor of changes in topics in the media event and conversational cues can identify the key players in theMedia object and that the content of the Twitter posts can somewhat reflect the topics of discussion in the Media object, but are mostly evaluative, in that they express the poster's reaction to the media.

Twitter as a Corpus for Sentiment Analysis and Opinion Mining

This paper shows how to automatically collect a corpus for sentiment analysis and opinion mining purposes and builds a sentiment classifier, that is able to determine positive, negative and neutral sentiments for a document.

Whisper: Tracing the Spatiotemporal Process of Information Diffusion in Real Time

In Whisper, the collective responses of communities on a given topic are summarized based on how tweets were retweeted by groups of users, through representing the sentiments extracted from the tweets, and tracing the pathways of retweets on a spatial hierarchical layout.

Why we twitter: understanding microblogging usage and communities

It is found that people use microblogging to talk about their daily activities and to seek or share information and the user intentions associated at a community level are analyzed to show how users with similar intentions connect with each other.

What is Twitter, a social network or a news media?

This work is the first quantitative study on the entire Twittersphere and information diffusion on it and finds a non-power-law follower distribution, a short effective diameter, and low reciprocity, which all mark a deviation from known characteristics of human social networks.

Topic Tracker : Shape-based Visualization for Trend and Sentiment Tracking in Twitter

This paper uses glyphs to visualize the appearance and sentiment of tweets on a timeline and enable analysts to keep track of the trend of their defined topic and the corresponding sentiment expressed by the Twitter users.

Web-Based Visual Analytics for Social Media

The Scalable Reasoning System is an application that couples a back-end server equipped with analysis algorithms and an intuitive visual in- terface to allow for investigation.

Recommending twitter users to follow using content and collaborative filtering approaches

A range of different profiling and recommendation strategies are evaluated, based on a large dataset of Twitter users and their tweets, to demonstrate the potential for effective and efficient followee recommendation.
